The younger brother of Tom McDonald was drafted after winning the TAC Cup Coaches award in his last season at North Ballarat. After a season of development with Casey in the VFL, McDonald made his debut as a defender in late 2015.

He started 2016 in the senior side before being injured. When McDonald returned he consolidated a position, playing 15 games and winning a Rising Star nomination. He was rewarded with a new two year contract. McDonald added a further 20 games as a key position defender in 2017. He played every game for the season in 2018 including three finals, signing a two year contract extension late in the season.

McDonald struggled in 2019, restricted to 12 games after losing his position in the Demon defence. Thrown forward at the end of the year due to a lack of tall forward options, McDonald kicked his first career goal in his 74th game.

McDonald played a further seven games in 2020 before being delisted. He trained with Carlton before the 2021 season and was signed by them as a delisted free agent before the start of the home and away season. He made his debut for the Blues in the opening round as the first player to be activated under a new 'medical substitute' rule, playing three games for them early in the year. He only added a further two in 2022 due to injury.

In 2023 McDonald played with VFL side Williamstown, before being drafted by Fremantle for 2024. In his first game for the Dockers, McDonald seriously injured his knee and missed the rest of the season.
