OAKLAND — The Yankees have claimed outfielder Darnell McDonald off waivers from the Red Sox and will have him in uniform for Friday's game at Fenway Park.
McDonald was designated for assignment on Saturday. He hit .214/.309/.369 in 38 games this season.
McDonald's brother, Donzell, played five games for the Yankees in 2001.
With the Red Sox pitching three lefties in the series, McDonald could get some at-bats against his former team.
