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.

Last week, I spoke with Trevor about his success, his rise up the minor league ladder with battery mate Sebastian Valle, the Reading community and much more..  Check out the media player below to hear the full interview.

    It’s good to have prospects no doubt. But think it’s very obvious what the Phil’s need at this time is hitting and not pitching……
    Don’t see any coming in the near future.

    Next year we loose Blanton and Conteras. I think one of these guys will get a look at. By then we should be able to tell if Worley is the read deal. We do need hitting but we do have some good pitching prospects down there.

    Good pitching prospects = more $ available to spend on acquiring good hitting. If just one pans out in 2013 to take Blanton’s spot at the minimum salary, that frees up $8 mil for Shane/Pence or a FA.
