Utility infielder John McDonald, who was acquired by the Red Sox on Aug. 31 to provide depth for the final month of the regular season, has agreed to a minor league deal with the Angels with an invitation to spring training, according to a major league source.

McDonald, 39, will make $850,000 plus incentives if he makes the team. His primary competition is likely to come from Andrew Romine, a 28-year-old who has appeared in 74 games over the past four seasons with the Angels and hit .250/.303/.270. Romine is the brother of Yankees catcher Austin Romine and the son of former Red Sox outfielder Kevin Romine.

McDonald, a Connecticut native and former Providence College star, appeared in six games for the Sox in September, collecting two hits in eight at-bats. He played for three other teams in 2013 as well.

Known mainly for his defense and versatility, McDonald has played 15 major league seasons with seven teams, hitting .235/.274/.327.
