    The Chanticleers' leading hitter, May was batting .308/.402/.470 in 50 games with 35 runs scored. His best tool is pure speed, though it doesn't fully translate to the diamond. He had been caught stealing eight times in 19 tries this season, and he tends to take poor routes in center field. Most scouts say that he can become an average or better defender with some adjustments, however. His arm is average. He's a switch-hitter with more natural ability from the right side, though he needs overall work with the bat. He can be direct to the ball, but he needs to play a smaller game with his speed and 5-foot-10, 185-pound frame. He fits in the sixth or seventh round and has similarities to Thomas Milone and Matt McPhearson, though he is three years older.
