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.
