McDonald to Angels?

According to the LA Times, the Angels are pursuing a shortstop for the final stretch just in case Erik Aybar gets injured. He has been battling injuries and bringing in a defensive shortstop could pay dividends in the long run. One name that comes up is John McDonald, who is hitting .222 with 1 HR in 66 games. However, McDonald is a solid fielder and GM Tony Reagins is a big believe in defense wins games. I tend to agree with him, but would rather see him go after someone like Ronny Cedeno. While it may cost him more, Cedeno looks like a solid shortstop in the future.
