He was committed to playing college baseball for the Texas Tech Red Raiders but chose to sign with the Dodgers for a $1 million signing bonus, forgoing his commitment.
After signing, May made his professional debut with the AZL Dodgers, and spent the whole season there, posting an 0-1 record with a 3.86 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 30.1 innings pitched. In 2017, he played for both the Great Lakes Loons and the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, compiling a combined 9-6 record, 3.63 ERA, and a 1.15 WHIP in 25 games (24 starts) between the two clubs.
On August 3, he made his first start for the Tulsa Drillers of Double-A going 3 2/3 innings giving up five earned runs. In 2018 for the Quakes he was selected to the post-season California League all-star team. On September 14, he started the Drillers title-clinching playoff game where he allowed two runs in five innings. In 23 total starts between Rancho Cucamonga and Tulsa, he was 9-5 with a 3.39 ERA.
May began 2019 with Tulsa. He was selected to the mid-season Texas League All-Star Game and the All-Star Futures Game. He was promoted to the AAA Oklahoma City Dodgers on June 27. He was a combined 6-5 with a 4.13 ERA as he struck out 110 batters in 106.2 innings.

He also pitched in 31⁄3 innings across two games for the Dodgers in the National League Division Series (NLDS) against the Washington Nationals, allowing one run on three hits.
May was selected to start for the Dodgers on Opening Day in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season after Clayton Kershaw injured his back before the game. May became the youngest opening day starter for the Dodgers since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981. He picked up his first win of the season on August 4, when he struck out eight in six innings against the San Diego Padres and appeared in 12 games (10 starts) with a 3–1 record and 2.57 ERA in 56 innings.
His 99.1 mph-average four-seam fastball was the fastest four-seamer of any major league pitcher for the 2020 season. He pitched three scoreless innings over two games in the 2020 NLDS against the San Diego Padres and allowed two earned runs in 42⁄3 innings over three games against the Atlanta Braves in the National League Championship Series (NLCS).

A tall pitcher at 6’6″, 180 lb, he pitches with a three-quarter stance with high leg lifts both before release, and at follow-through (with nobody on base). His main pitches are a two-seam fastball with sinker-like movement, which averages at over 98 mph, a cutter, a curveball and a four-seam fastball. He was ranked 4th amongst starting pitchers in lateral movement in 2020, which is rare for a pitcher that averages over 93 mph on their two-seam fastballs or sinkers.
May is nicknamed “Gingergaard” after current New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard, due to his profile and appearance, as well as his red hair.
