CLEVELAND, OH - The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has claimed INF MIKE McDADE off outright waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays.

McDade, 23, spent the 2012 season between Double-A New Hampshire and Triple-A Las Vegas where he hit a combined .285 (128-449) with 19 doubles, 1 triple, 17 home runs and 67RBI in 118 games between the two stops (.360OB/.445SLG/.806OPS).  During his month stint in Las Vegas to end the season he hit .338 (24-71) with 3 2B, 2HR & 18 RBI in his final 18 games of the season (.885OPS). For the year the switch-hitting first baseman hit .298 (97-326) off right-handed pitching.

The Las Vegas, Nevada native was Toronto’s 6th round selection in the 2007 First-Year Player Draft out of Silverado High School. He was named Class-A Dunedin’s Team MVP in 2010 and in 2011 at AA New Hampshire he finished 3rd in the Eastern League with 37 doubles and was a midseason EL All-Star.

To allow room on the 40-man roster for McDade the Indians have designated LHP CHRIS SEDDON for assignment.
