KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones announced they have acquired the rights to infielder Blake May from Trinidad of the Pecos League in exchange for future considerations.
May is a 6-foot and 185-pound rookie third baseman from Largo, Fla. This past season he batted .355 with 86 hits, including six home runs and 63 RBIs in 57 games for Trinidad. Playing third base for the majority of the year (54 games), May had a .959 fielding percentage with six errors in 146 chances. During his final two seasons at Anderson College (S.C.), May was selected to the Rawlings/American Baseball Coaches Association NCAA Division II Gold Glove Team.
“May is a solid defender and his rookie status makes him in interesting prospect to look at next spring training,” said manager John Massarelli.
May, who will be 25 when the 2015 season starts, was selected for the Pecos League all-star game this past season.
