It will mean that at least two of Martin, McKenry and Sanchez are injured. Not sure if Ali Solis is a better fourth option than May, but following Solis all Winter in the Mexican League, he had trouble hitting and on defense. Not pretty what he did there, plus he got hurt at one point.
It is good to have two guys with major league experience at AAA for the young pitchers, so in that sense, May is good. One of them might even be at AA, so there is some value to players like them
