Scouting a Dustin May start against Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and Anthony Rendon

Dustin May of the Los Angeles Dodgers is one of the top prospects in baseball, ranking 19th in my preseason top 100, and has turned in some eye-opening performances this year, including some viral two-seam fastballs with sink and run up to 100 mph. I watched his outing Sunday against the Los Angeles Angels and wanted to break him down in the way that I would a prospect if there were minor league games going on. A young right-hander just losing his prospect eligibility is the next best thing.

For reference, I'll be grading May on the 20-80 scouting scale, where 50 is league average, 80 is all-time great, 55 is above-average, 45 is below average, 60 is termed "plus" (one standard deviation above average for the statistics types) and 70 is "plus-plus." A 60/70 pitch is a 60-grade pitch at present that will be a 70 in the future, at maturity.
