Darnell McDonald is now a New York Yankee.
After being designated for assignment, the former Red Sox outfielder has been claimed by New York, according to the outfielder's own Twitter account.

McDonald became the odd man out in the Red Sox outfield after several players began to work their way back from injuries. And with Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury nearing returns, McDonald would have only fallen even further down the depth chart.
In New York, he may have a chance for more regular playing time by taking away some at-bats from Dewayne Wise while Brett Gardner continues his rehab from injury.
