BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 May's inclusion in the Revere trade turned it from a head-scratcher to a clear win for Ryan. May's stock rose quickly after he struck out 12.4 batters per nine innings at Clearwater in 2011, but took a dive along with his command and control last year as he was promoted to Double-A. He remains a big kid with a big fastball, however, something that's in very short supply in Minnesota, and will need work to improve his mechanics and mental approach if he's going to make it as a starter. He will almost certainly start the season at New Britain, but a trip to Rochester, and maybe even to the Twin Cities, isn't unrealistic for the 23-year-old.
2012 It’s a wonder what a second go-round can do for a guy’s confidence. After a brief hiccup early in the season, May established himself as the best pitching prospect in the Phillies system by pumping his power stuff past High-A hitters. He still needs to work on his control, but between his plus fastball and his sharp breaking ball, he has the stuff of a potential front-of-the-rotation pitcher. He will likely start out at Double-A, but if his success continues there, he will set his own timetable.
2011 May is a tall righty with little sense of the strike zone. He requires plenty of seasoning, as his rough stint at Clearwater demonstrated. Still, he has a live fastball that sits in the low-90s and a demonstrated ability to get hitters out. To hit his spots more often he will need to find a repeatable delivery, since his follow-through can be quite erratic. After being sent back to A-ball in midseason, May was essentially unhittable. He’ll try again in High-A against hitters his own age, and won't be long for the level if his Lakewood control translates.
2010 The Phillies’ 2008 fourth-round draft pick, Trevor May showed considerably upside last year; he loses his control and has rough stretches at times, but his fastball gets up to 95 mph, and his changeup and a curveball improved during the year.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sounds like Trevor May is getting a shot this weekend. What are your thoughts on his near- and long-term futures?
(Jim from St Paul)
I'm not a big fan. He can miss some bats but the command isn't there for him to be much more than back end rotation fodder. If he becomes a 4, I'd be pretty happy if I'm Minnesota. That means he's waiver fodder in shallower fantasy leagues and a bench/matchup option in deeper leagues. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Trevor May progressed to the point where he could be a solution for the Twins rotation?
(Tom from Chicago)
Yeah, he's probably ready. They have to make room though, and the acquisition of Tommy Milone won't help that. Neither will the money they've committed to pitchers recently. (Jeff Moore)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Trevor May might be having the best season of Twins pitchers; is his success at AAA some what muted by his struggles at AA in previous seasons? Was he considered at all for top 50? What kind of big leaguer does he profile as?
(Noah from Kalamazoo)
He wasn't in the mix for the 50; backend profile for me/innings chewer without frontline upside. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Nolasco's injury and Yohan Pino's 15 minutes almost up, do you see Trevor May and Alex Meyer making their debuts soon? What can we expect from them?
(Jim from Kansas)
I think both will be up in Minnesota in the second half of the season. I've always been much higher on Meyer than I have May. To me, Meyer has always been a starter and a quality 2/3 starter at that. I've never been that enamored with May's long term outlook, and never saw the high-end arm that some did. To me, he's more of a #4 starter; still valuable but not nearly as impressive as some would lead you to believe. (Mark Anderson)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)How long is my cup of coffee before Alex Meyer and/or Trevor May take my spot and Correia's? What can we expect from Meyer and May when called upon?
(Yohan Pino from In rotation)
Rent, don't buy. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's your outlook on Trevor May and Alex Meyer for this season? Who gets the call first and how do each of them do in MLB?
(Jurgen Klinsmann from Brazil)
I'm not huge on Trevor May, but he's certainly become more interesting. I'm all about Alex Meyer, though. I think he's a potential #2 starter if he can sustain his improved command. I acquired him a couple months ago in my 20-team dynasty league and am looking forward to reaping the benefits as soon as 2015. I think he's legit. On the flip side, I'm not convinced Trevor May is anything more than a back-end option. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Trevor May's season? Stat line would indicate good things. . . still have a chance to be a solid 3/4 workhorse type?
(Todd from MN)
His best control yet gives him a chance to stick as a back end guy. The production has never quite added up to the stuff. He could still stick or would still make a good pen piece. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)How long do you figure the Twins' leash is on their rotation problems? Do you feel Trevor May has made enough progress with his control to get the call and succeed?
(loyalroyal from Lunch)
I don't think Nolasco or Hughes is in danger, and it doesn't do them any good to remove Gibson. It wouldn't surprise me if Meyer replaces Pelfrey or Correia in the coming weeks. He would be ahead of May for me. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on Trevor May's improved control? He worked on something in the AFL and it seems to be carrying over into AAA.
(Ian from OK)
Yeah, he's off to a great start, especially control-wise. It's important to point out, however, that guys rarely drop from four and a half walks per nine to less than two. They simply don't make those kinds of improvements, especially in one off-season. He can get into the threes (BB/9) and needs to be to be effective, but it would be remarkable if he continued to throw strikes at this rate. Impressive, but rare. (Jeff Moore)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Would you consider the pitching depth in the Twins' system lacking?
(richardkr34 from Saint Paul, MN)
I would consider the Twins' pitching improving. Alex Meyer, JO Berrios, Trevor May, and others are all very good options. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Trevor May have a chance to be a #3 starter?
(richardkr34 from Saint Paul, MN)
It's possible; that's the ceiling. (Jason Parks)
2012-12-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rather have Alex Meyer or Vance Worley and Trevor May?
(Klochner from MN)
I'd rather have Meyer than May (Jason Parks)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Trevor May, 22yrs old and just finished first AA level with unimpressive stats. I mean, 9.1 K/9 is fine but the mechanical inconsistency (per Bradley Ankrom)is worrisome. No.2 ceiling, yay or nay?
(Trevor from PA)
Young pitchers have mechanical inconsistencies. That's not a deal breaker. They are often working on things that the average eye can't determine, and that can lead to setbacks and uneven performances. I'm not that high on May, meaning I don't quite buy the #2 ceiling. I think he can develop into a major league starter, and has the profile to log innings. It's not a special arm, but that's a big value player if he can become an innings chewer. (Jason Parks)
2012-01-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Where does Trevor May start the season and could he see a Sept callup?
(Scott from Mumbai)
Double-A; certainly POSSIBLE. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are Trevor May's strikeouts a result of a lack of control which would force batters to swing outside of the strike zone or does he have legitimate ace offerings?
(Mark from Vineland)
Ace? So few aces in baseball, and May isn't one of them. He's a very good pitching prospect, but seriously folks, we have to lay off the ace and No. 1 stuff. It's crazy rare. (Kevin Goldstein)
