ESPN's Keith Law released his list of the top 100 prospects in baseball and this year just one Phillie makes the list, right handed pitcher Trevor May. Here's what Law had to say.
May's return engagement in the Florida State League went much better than the first go-round, cutting his walk rate nearly in half while striking out 208, a third of the batters he faced. May has above-average velocity at 91-95 mph and his curveball, while still not above-average, at least improved last year. The same applies to his changeup, which is slightly ahead of the curve but still isn't a real weapon for him yet.
May is 22 and pitched at single-A Clearwater last season. He jumped up from a ranking of 93 last season.
Domonic Brown does not qualify as he lost rookie status after getting 184 at bats last season. 130 at-bats is the limit to maintain rookie status. He's also spent more than 45 days on a major league roster.
