Rangers acquire INF Donald from Royals

The Texas Rangers acquired minor-league infielder Jason Donald from the Kansas City Royals for cash considerations on Thursday.

Donald, 29, has played all of 2014 with Triple-A Omaha, batting .231 (18-for-78) with three doubles, a home run and five RBIs in 25 games. He has 170 games of big league experience, all of them from 2010 to 2012 with the Cleveland Indians. He hit .257 in that span.

Donald is on the paternity list but is expected to be activated this weekend in Triple-A Round Rock.
