Righty pitching prospect Trevor May continued with his exceptional 2012 campaign on Monday night, when he threw 7 innings for the Double-A Reading Phillies against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Toronto affiliate), while allowing 2 earned runs, striking out 7 and allowing no walks. The victory put May’s record at 5-0 on the season. The effort raised May’s impressive ERA up to 2.40.
May, who stands 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighs roughly 220 pounds, was the Phillies’ 4th round draft selection in 2008 and has been earning considerable recognition ever since.
The 2011 winner of the Paul Owens Award, an honor bestowed upon the top pitcher and the top offensive player in the Phillies developmental ranks each year, May really made an impact on the Florida State League. In 27 starts last year, May posted a 10-8 record with a 3.63 ERA and 208 strike outs in 151 1/3 innings pitched.
