The Phillies have acquired 38-year old righty swinging infielder John McDonald from the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later or cash considerations.  McDonald has played in 24 games this year with the Pirates and Indians and he is 2 for 38 (.053 avg, .242 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI.  McDonald has now played in 978 games in his first 15 years in the majors and he is 549 of 2,327 (.236 avg, .601 OPS) with 266 runs scored, 27 homers, 202 RBIs and 33 stolen bases.  McDonald is a wizard with the glove, so look for him to do most of his work with Philly as a defensive replacement.
