May’s changeup came in eight ticks slower than his fastball and hit the zone 50.4%. The SwStr% and O-Swing% on the pitch dropped significantly, which led to the K% on the pitch dropping from 37.5% to 19.2%.

May retooled his slider, slowing it down some and adding more movement and the results were better than in 2018. He got a 30.4% K% and allowed a 104 wRC+.

May threw his decent 94 mph fastball nearly 60% of the time. He got an astonishing 16.6% whiff rate with it, which helped it draw a 66.2% contact rate. This can make his primary fastball an effective go-to pitch. He may need to find more reliable secondary offerings to improve his repertoire.

May struck hitters out 41% of the time with his curve, his main offspeed pitch. Despite allowing only one hit off this pitch in the few innings he threw, most of the batted balls against it were in the air.

May’s second breaking pitch is his slider, which he threw infrequently. That was probably a good idea, as he allowed many hits in the few at-bats he used it in.

May should consider throwing this changeup more often. With a 72% zone contact rate and nearly a 70% zone rate, he pounded the zone for strikes. If the pitch was hit, it ended up on the ground.
