White Sox claimed 1B Michael McDade off waivers from the Indians; optioned him to Triple-A Charlotte.

McDade was designated for assignment by the Indians late last week. The 24-year-old was off to a slow start with Cleveland's Triple-A affiliate, but he hit .285/.360/.445 with 19 home runs and an .806 OPS between Toronto's Double-A and Triple-A affiliates last season. He'll function as organizational depth.

Indians designated 1B Michael McDade for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Ezequiel Carrera. McDade, who is batting just .230/.313/.284 with no homers at Triple-A this season, will probably pass through waivers. Then again, he used to be a Blue Jay, so it's always possible Alex Anthopoulos will claim him.

Indians optioned 1B Michael McDade to Triple-A Buffalo; reassigned INF/OF Nate Spears to minor league camp.

McDade earned a spot on the 40-man roster last fall, but he gets the boot after batting .285/.360/.445 with 17 homers and an .806 OPS in 118 games this year between Double- and Triple-A. The 23-year-old could draw some interest on waivers.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of 1B Michael McDade from Double-A New Hampshire.

A former sixth-round pick, McDade .281/.328/.457 with 16 homers over 484 at-bats for New Hampshire this season. He'll need to progress more at the plate to turn into a real prospect, and the Jays are willing to let him occupy a spot on the 40-man roster to see if he can do just that.
