He'll presumably receive an invitation to spring training as well. The 29-year-old spent the entire 2013 season at Triple-A Louisville where he struggled to the tune of .219/.268/.319 with two homers and 17 RBI in 78 games.

Reds designated INF Jason Donald for assignment.

Donald has batted just .257/.309/.362 during parts of three major league seasons, but he's versatile and hit pretty well in the minors, so someone could scoop him up off waivers. Cesar Izturis made the Opening Day roster over him.

Jason Donald said Monday that his knee feels "awesome."

Jason Donald (wrist) is hoping to be available Friday.

Jason Donald (wrist) played catch prior to Tuesday's game.

Jason Donald is day-to-day with a right-forearm contusion.

Donald was removed from Friday's game after being hit by a pitch, but X-rays came back negative. Asdrubal Cabrera is returning to the lineup Saturday after missing five games with a wrist injury.

Jason Donald underwent X-rays on his right wrist Friday.

The severity of the injury isn't yet known. Donald was hit by a Justin Verlander pitch in the seventh inning and replaced by Brent Lillibridge. The Indians are expecting Asdrubal Cabrera (wrist) to return this weekend.

Jason Donald went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Donald took Travis Blackley deep in the third. The home run was just his second in 93 at-bats this season. Hitting .215/.250/.290, he's well off the radar in AL-only leagues.

Jason Donald, who was recalled by the Indians earlier in the day, blasted a solo home run in Thursday's 5-3 victory over the Red Sox.

Donald finished the night 1-for-4 with a pair of runs scored, two RBI and also stole a base. He got the Indians offense started with a bang, smashing a solo homer off Felix Doubront leading off the first inning. He's hitting a paltry .192 through his first 52 at-bats on the season and shouldn't be considered in all but the deepest of AL-only leagues.

Indians recalled SS Jason Donald from Triple-A Columbus.

Donald will provide the Indians with infield depth while Travis Hafner (lower back) is on the disabled list. He figures to see the majority of his playing time against left-handed pitching.
