Angels sign John McDonald to minor league deal

The Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a minor league contract with infielder John McDonald, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com. Bradford adds that the deal will include an invitation to major league spring training, and that McDonald will earn $850K plus incentives if he makes the major league roster.

McDonald, 39, appeared in the majors for four teams in 2013, ultimately receiving a World Series ring with the Red Sox. In 37 games with the Pirates, Phillies, Indians and Red Sox on the season, he hit .111 with 1 HR and 4 RBI in 54 at-bats.

McDonald will likely compete for a backup spot in the Angels’ infield throughout spring training, along with Grant Green, Andrew Romine, and Tommy Field.
