MiLB.com hands out Player of the Week awards all year and BlueClaws RHP Trevor May was named the South Atlantic League Pitcher of the Week for the postseason.
Trevor May, who struck out 182 over 135 regular season innings this year, kicked off the BlueClaws’ championship run by whiffing 13 and walking one over 6 2/3 shutout innings against the Hickory Crawdads. May earned the win in that game, but his next time out he wasn’t as fortunate. In Game 1 of the Finals against Greenville, May gave up a run over five innings and got stuck with a loss. He still managed to pile up eight strikeouts in that outing.
In four postseason starts over two years for the BlueClaws, May gave up one run in 22 2/3 innings pitched. Not too shabby.
