D’Backs Acquire Lucas May

The D'Backs have acquired Lucas May from the Royals for right-hander Andrea Pizziconi, according to Jack Magruder of FOXSportsArizona.com (Twitter links). May will likely provide depth at Triple-A Reno.

The Royals acquired the 26-year-old backstop from the Dodgers in last summer's Scott Podsednik trade. The 2003 eighth rounder has a .176/.263/.329 line in  Triple-A this year, though his minor league track record suggests he's capable of more. May posted an .831 OPS last year and has a career .258/.320/.432 line in nine minor league seasons.

Pizziconi, a native of Italy, signed with the D'Backs as a non-drafted free agent. The 19-year-old posted a 2.57 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 in 49 innings at Rookie Ball and Low-A Ball last year.
