Trevor May is Philadelphia's best prospect, and so far, he's pitched like it for Double-A Reading.
May, 22, allowed only one hit in six shutout innings today, leaving the game with two walks and seven strikeouts. With a lively 90-95 mph fastball and two secondary pitches that can be swing-and-miss offerings, May has held down a 2.35 ERA with 26 strikeouts and eight walks in 23 innings through his first four starts.
Given some of May's control issues in the past, he probably isn't going to be rushed to the major league club any time soon, but if he continues to tighten his command, he could be in line for a job in Philadelphia's starting rotation by 2013.
