Reddit Q&A with Trevor May

Last night, Phillies pitching prospect Trevor May answered a bunch of questions on Reddit. Lots of really interesting answers and a bit of a look into the life of a Minor Leaguer. Make sure to check it out and follow him on Twitter.

May spent all of the 2011 season with Clearwater, where he posted a 3.63 ERA with a 12.4 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9. Baseball America lists him as the organization’s #1 prospect.

Here are a few of my favorite Q&A’s:

Reddit: what has been your best experience with a big leaguer rehabbing with your squad?

May: Talking Pitching with Brian [Schneider]. That guy is awesome to talk to.

. . .

Reddit: Let’s say you make the show..and you face Bryce Harper. How would you go about pitching against him?

May: In, In, Up and IN.

. . .

Reddit: Is it ever weird to watch MLB games on TV or live, now that the chance for you to be in them is so close? How is it different from watching those games as a kid?

May: Sometimes I stop and realize how surreal it is and will be when I finally throw on that mound. You just always think its so far away, but now that its close its hard to truly realize what It will be like.

Tip of the cap to @jph89 for giving May the idea.

    Really strange that Trevor never heard of sabermetrics before.

    I’d bet there are still a lot of players out there that are unaware of Sabermetrics. There’s not a whole lot they can get out of it, aside from stuff like, “Hmm, my K/BB ratio wasn’t that impressive.” Seems like players would benefit more from Pitch F/X.
