Trevor May might as well get used to accolades. The young right-hander ranks 74th among the top 100 prospects in all of baseball in the annual rankings by Scout.com.
May, who went 10-8, 3.63 in 27 starts with the Clearwater Threshers in 2011, is generally recognized as the best prospect in the Phillies organization. The 22-year old will likely start the season at Double-A Reading this season.
The Phillies drafted May in the fourth round of the 2008 Draft out of Kelso High School (Washington) and he has made a consistent rise through the organization. May started his professional career in the Gulf Coast League in 2008 and has a career mark of 27-8, 3.55 in 74 minor league appearances, 69 of them as a starter.
Tampa Bay pitcher Matthew Moore ranks first among the top 100 prospects, supplanting the Angles Mike Trout, who drops to number two on this year's list. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is third followed by pitcher Julio Teheran (Atlanta) and catcher Jesus Montero (NY Yankees).
