RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Jacob May.

2017

May has some pedigree, being the son of a former major leaguer and a third-round pick back in 2013. However, the rest of his offensive game (besides his plus speed) hasn't developed as hoped. The outfielder hasn't slugged .400 or gotten on base at even a .330 clip above High-A. He's totaled five home runs over the past three seasons, with middling walk rates and elevated strikeout rates so far at the higher levels. A strong showing in spring training convinced the rebuilding White Sox to ship Peter Bourjos out of town and give May a look out of camp, but he's gotten off to a dismal start with the major-league team. Charlie Tilson isn't expected to return from a foot injury until late May at the earliest, but May is unlikely to be afforded much of a leash in a regular role if he continues to struggle. Even if he does pick it up some, he will primarily be a one-category play.

2016

A concussion derailed May’s 2015 season. He started the year hitting .311 with a .359 on-base percentage and 25 steals in 52 games at Double-A Birmingham, but he hit a mere .235 in 200 plate appearances after returning from the injury. He fits the mold of an athletic outfielder with good speed, a solid contact rate and prowess on the basepaths. He will likely need a do-over at Double-A in 2016 before progressing through the system.
