Lucas May traded


Per MLB Trade Rumors, the Royals have traded Lucas May to the Diamondbacks for a 19 y/o Italian pitcher named Andrea Pizziconi.  Add him to Vin Mazzaro and Jake Odirizzi and we have a lot of Scrabble points.

At first glance, this looks to be an absolute steal for the Royals.  They ship off Lucas May, who was the 5th or 6th catcher at best in the Royals' organizational chart and relatively old at 26 for a 19 y/o pitcher with good traditional and decent peripheral numbers. 

The Moore haters have to at least give him credit for putting another solid young arm in the system without giving up much of anything.

Lucas May: .176/.263/,329 in 95 PA at AAA
Andrea Pizziconi: 2.57 ERA 1.22 WHIP 5 K/9 3.4 BB/9 in 49 IP between Rookie League and A-.
