May is an interesting pitching prospect who possesses solid present stuff and impressive pitchability for his age. However, his incredibly projectable frame makes him a profile you can dream on. While he does have high-maintenance mechanics, he repeats them well and isn't prone to the wildness as one would expect from a 6-foot-6 19-year-old. The changeup still lags behind his other offerings, but his advanced approach and control indicates that he can stick in a rotation. If his body fills out and the fastball gains a few ticks, his ceiling could climb a lot higher.
