The Phillies have dealt 38-year old righty swinging infielder John McDonald to the Boston Red Sox for 24-year old righty reliever Nefi Ogando. McDonald played in 21 games for the Phillies this year and he was 4 for 23 (.174 avg, .513 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs. Ogando pitched in 33 games (0 starts) in A-ball for the Red Sox and he was 2-3 with 3 saves, a 4.09 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. Ogando has now pitched in 97 games (6 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 10-13 with 5 saves, a 3.45 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. This was a good deal for the Phillies as they got a nice relief prospect for a 38-year old backup infielder that can’t hit a lick.
