Update: (8:20pm CDT) The two minor leaguers heading to the Kansas City Royals are catcher Lucas May and pitcher Elisaul Pimentel.

According to ESPN's Jayson Stark , the Kansas City Royals have traded outfielder Scott Podsednik to the Los Angeles Dodgers in return for two minor leaguers, though the names of those minor leaguers have yet to be released.

A few days ago, it seemed like the entire NL West was after the former Chicago White Sox outfielder but the Padres were quickly taken out of the mix by Tom Krasovic of AOL Fanhouse.

Earlier today, several writers were saying the Dodgers and Giants were still in it, but that the Dodgers were making a big push for him.

Podsednik is enjoying a great year so far, hitting .309 with five home runs and 44 runs driven in.
