Scouting report
May is another good athlete with great speed to join the ranks of outfield prospects in the organization. He hit .324/.417/.495 as a junior for a strong Coastal Carolina program to boost his draft stock. He's not expected to be a power bat, but he did hit seven homers in his final college season and followed that up with eight in less than half a season at Low-A Kannapolis. May is a good defender thanks to his speed, but his route running and arm are below average. He is a leadoff type hitter with the ability to steal bases. He's a switch-hitter who is better from the right side for now. May has some good tools and was able to reach Low-A Kannapolis after just 12 games in rookie ball, but has shown to be streaky and fairly raw since.

Major League Outlook: Speed/defense first outfielder, bottom of the order hitter
ETA: 2017
