Veteran utility man John McDonald could be heading back to the Cleveland Indians. Per Mike DiMauro, a sports columnist for The New London Day in Connecticut, the Indians have acquired their former infielder in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Spies say John McDonald has just been traded from the Pirates to the Indians, now that Asdrubal Cabrera is injured #MLB — Mike DiMauro (@BCgenius) June 10, 2013 DiMauro’s report has yet to be confirmed, and there is no sign of who (or what) would be going back to Pittsburgh, but it appears that this all comes in the wake of a quadriceps injury suffered by All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera. McDonald, 38, spent the large part of six seasons with the Tribe having a reserve role between 1999-2004. On the season, the 38-year-old McDonald is hitting .065 with just two hits in 35 plate appearances through 16 games. Mike Aviles has been starting for Cabrera, so it is difficult to envision this as anything outside of depth in the event that it materializes as being accurate.
