White Sox claim Mike McDade

Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

The White Sox have claimed Mike McDade.

The White Sox have claimed first baseman Mike McDade off waivers, the Indians announced via their official Twitter feed.

McDade was playing for the Indians' Triple-A affiliate in Columbus, and was batting .230 with zero home runs. He has been struggling so far this season, but has a track record of hitting previously in the minors.

The team has been active on the waiver wire under new GM Rick Hahn, and has been turning over its Triple-A depth and trying to supply the big league club with depth.

McDade probably won't ever be a regular starter for a Major League team, but he has the ability to be a potential bench bat in September if the team needs him in that role.
