Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 65 | Curveball: 60 | Cutter: 60 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 55 | Overall: 55

May stood out with some of the highest spin rates at the World Wood Bat Association World Championships in October 2015, setting the stage for going in the third round and signing for an above-slot $997,500 the following June. Within two years, he had developed into the Dodgers' best pitching prospect and they refused to part with him when the Orioles targeted him during Manny Machado trade talks. He advanced to Double-A at age 20 and thrived there, winning the clinching game of the Texas League playoffs.

Los Angeles has had May switch from a four-seam fastball to a two-seamer, which jumped 3 mph last season to sit at 92-97 mph with groundball-inducing run and sink. After he threw a curveball and slider that tended to blend together, the Dodgers had him concentrate on the curve, which has become a hard-breaking weapon that also creates groundouts. He added a cutter in 2018 and it has become equally as devastating while reaching the low 90s.

May also has a changeup, and while it's raw and gets too firm at times, he shows enough aptitude that it should become an average fourth offering. He has good body control for a young pitcher with a lanky, long-limbed frame, pounding the strike zone despite a slingy arm action. He also stands out for his mound presence and feel for pitching, which enhance his chances of becoming a No. 3 starter.
