ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have acquired infielder John McDonald from the Pittsburgh Pirates for a player to be named or cash considerations.

McDonald was sent to the Indians on Monday after the Pirates recalled him from a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis and activated him from the 15-day disabled list.

The 38-year-old McDonald spent his first six seasons with Cleveland starting in 1999. He has also played for Detroit, Toronto and Arizona.

McDonald was 2 for 31 with the Pirates this season. He’s a career .240 hitter.

The Indians made room for McDonald by moving right-hander Brett Myers to the 60-day disabled list. Myers has been on the DL since April 20 with tendinitis and a mild ligament sprain in his right elbow.
