2017-03-30 20:00:00 (link to chat)Jacob May won the starting CF job for the CWS. He had a very nice sprint training. What are your thoughts/projections for him this year. Thanks
(StanS from Baltimore)
I don't see a ton of upside, but playing time is playing time. He could put up some counting stats as long as he's playing nearly every day. His on-base skills could use some improvement, though. (Scooter Hotz)
2013-07-12 19:30:00 (link to chat)Jacob May: Great pick? Or best pick ever?
(GrinnellSteve from Iowa )
Are those my only choices? How about fun player to watch that will probably need to prove himself at each level along the way to start making prospect list impact? (Nick Faleris on Draft Signing Day)
