The only solution rsync provides is to scan all directories, like this:

--include='*/' --include='*MY*/*' --include='*MY*' --exclude='*'

That creates the entire directory hierarchy, but only copies the
contents of a directory named *MY* and any files that are named
*MY*.  If you want finer control, you need to do the scan yourself
and use the --files-from option.
