White Sox's Jacob May: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Thursday.

In order to make room for recently-acquired pitcher Miguel Gonzalez, the team cast May off the 40-man roster. The outfielder appeared in 15 games for Chicago in 2017, going 2-for-36 with three RBI and three walks during his first opportunity in the big leagues. May will ready himself for another season at the Triple-A level with Charlotte, assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed.

White Sox's Jacob May: Optioned to Triple-A Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Monday's game, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The White Sox will wait to announce a corresponding move until Tuesday. May went just 2-for-36 over his 15 games with the White Sox and struck out 17 times, so it clearly wasn't happening for him at the MLB level. Leury Garcia will hold down the center-field job for now, but it's unclear how long that'll last.

White Sox's Jacob May: Collects first MLB hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May entered Saturday's game as a pinch hitter and delivered his first hit in the major leagues. He went 1-for-2 with a strikeout in a 7-0 loss to Cleveland.

May served as a pinch hitter for Melky Cabrera, who left the game with a wrist injury, and played left field. After opening the season as the team's starting center fielder, May struggled at the plate and has been sharing the job with Leury Garcia. If Cabrera's injury costs him any time, May will be in line for at-bats but those aren't at-bats fantasy owners want.

White Sox's Jacob May: Returns to lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May returned to the lineup Saturday after sitting three straight games. He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in the White Sox's 6-0 loss to the Twins.

May earned the starting job in center field based on his productive spring, but we're relearning the old adage that spring training stats don't guarantee regular-season success. He's hitless over 20 plate appearances with eight strikeouts, one walk, one run and two RBI to start his MLB career. Luery Garcia is the top backup but his .191 career average over 163 games in the majors ought to deter fantasy owners who think there might be a gem hidden somewhere in Chicago's outfield.

White Sox's Jacob May: Remains out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May is not in the lineup Thursday against the Indians.

May has seen his playing time dwindle after failing to garner a hit yet this year, and Thursday marks the second day in a row that view the game from the bench. Leury Garcia will patrol center field once again in his place.
