Pirates signed C Lucas May to a minor league contract.

May, 28, batted .215/.245/.348 in 75 games with the Mets' Triple-A affiliate the past season. He'll represent organizational depth.

Mets signed C Lucas May to a minor league contract.

May, 27, hit .238 with 10 homers and and 44 RBIs last season between the Triple-A affiliates of the Diamondbacks and Royals. He'll provide organizational depth.

Diamondbacks acquired C Lucas May from the Royals in exchange for RHP Andrea Pizziconi.

The D'Backs are a little thin on depth at Triple-A Reno after trading John Hester to the Orioles, so May will help out in that regard. He's hitting just .176/.263/.329 with three homers at Triple-A Omaha this season. Pizziconi, a 19-year-old signed last year out of Italy, has yet to pitch this season.

Royals sent C Lucas May outright to Triple-A Omaha.

May was designated for assignment last week. The 26-year-old catcher batted .283/.349/.483 with 16 homers and 59 RBI between Double- and Triple-A last season, so it's a little surprising he didn't draw more interest on the waiver wire.

Royals designated C Lucas May for assignment.

May should draw serious interest from major league teams seeking depth at catcher. The 25-year-old posted an .831 OPS and 16 home runs in 104 minor league games (mostly at Triple-A) last season. Those stats are inflated by the power-friendly Pacific Coast League, but he has a decent power bat.

Royals recalled C Lucas May from Triple-A Omaha.

May was acquired from the Dodgers in the Scott Podsednik trade last month. The 25-year-old catcher has batted .283/.349/.483 with 16 homers and 59 RBI in 375 at-bats with Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Albuquerque (Dodgers) and Triple-A Omaha (Royals) this season. Keep in mind that May spent most of the year in the hitter-friendly PCL, but he does have pretty good power for a catcher. It's his ability behind the plate that remains a work in progress, however.

Royals acquired C Lucas May and RHP Elisaul Pimentel from the Dodgers for OF Scott Podsednik.

May looks pretty good right now - he currently has a .302/.354/.504 line in Triple-A - but there are warts. Once you adjust for the run environment in the Pacific Coast League (a known hitters' league), and take out some batted ball luck, the line looks a lot worse. This is also the first year that May has shown the ability to walk at an above-average rate. Lastly, he's old (25) and despite a slugging percentage north of .468 the last two years, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus once again chimed in and said he does not have "great power." Some have even suggested he will be a backup catcher eventually.

Lucas May is hitting .143 in the AFL after going 0-for-5 on Tuesday.

Maybe the Dodgers shouldn't trade Russell Martin just yet. May has displayed glimpses of offensive potential, but after a hot start, he ended up hitting .230/.294/.403 at Double-A Jacksonville this year. With Carlos Santana gone to Cleveland in the Casey Blake deal, the Dodgers are short on catching help in the minors.

Double-A Jacksonville's Lucas May went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double on Monday.

This after he doubled three times on Sunday. May is hitting .364/.395/.697 in 33 at-bats. The converted third baseman is in just his second full season as a catcher, but he has the tools to be a fine defender in time. He's potential trade bait for a Dodgers team that hopes to have Russell Martin behind the plate for a long time.
