Darnell McDonald clears waivers sent to AAA


Outfielder Darnell McDonald had a very brief Yankees career after they claimed him off waivers from the Boston Red Sox only to use him in one four game series before designating him for assignment.

He might not be wearing the Pinstripes any longer, but he will stick around in the organization. Donnie Collins of the Scranton Times-Tribune, reported over the weekend that McDonald has cleared waivers and been assigned to the Triple-A Empire State team. Good news for them considering Chris Dickerson, Kosuke Fukudome, and Cole Garner are their only other healthy outfielders.

McDonald, 33, has a career line of .246/.312/.394 over six seasons. The Yankees got him because he has a career line of .274/.342/.436 against lefties.
