Phillies acquire infielder McDonald from Tribe

On Thursday, the Indians traded McDonald to the Phillies in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Philadelphia is expected to make a subsequent roster move to officially add McDonald on Friday, when the infielder is scheduled to join his new team in Los Angeles.

Over 15 seasons, the 38-year-old has had stints with the Indians, Blue Jays, Tigers, D-backs and Pirates. At this stage in his career, McDonald is typically used as a utility infielder or a late-inning defensive specialist off the bench.

McDonald has hit just .236 in 978 career games in the Majors, but he brings a strong defensive presence for second base, shortstop and third base. McDonald is widely regarded as a positive influence in the clubhouse.

Good job Ruben, he'll really help out this inconsistent and impatient offense!!
