"It was tough [to trade May],'' Colletti said. "He is a great kid, and he is one of those kids who loves to play and will do anything he can to help you win a game. But he was a converted shortstop, and he was working his way through that transition. Even though he has a chance to be a really good hitter, catching is tough. At this point, and with where we're at, this is the way we decided to go.

"We wish Lucas the best going forward.''

Pimentel, 22, was 9-3 with a 3.49 ERA in 17 appearances (16 starts) for low Class A Great Lakes. He gained a small measure of national notoriety earlier this season when he and teammate Rafael Ynoa helped save the life of a man who crashed his motorcycle directly in front of the car Pimentel and Ynoa were riding in.

"We were somewhat high on him, but he was still in A-ball,'' Colletti said. "He had progressed pretty well for the amount of time he had pitched.''

Jackson also speculates that Xavier Paul might get sent down, unless they DFA Garret Anderson. Or do something else. He also presumes that Russell Martin won't be non-tendered now.
