Josh Donaldson puts 2-for-22 slump behind him
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson started the season mired in a 2-for-22 slump, but his struggles at the plate appear to be a thing of the past.

Donaldson collected his third straight multi-hit game and extended his hitting streak to four games during a 6-1 win Thursday against the Twins.

Donaldson homered for the first time this season -- connecting for a two-run homer off Mike Pelfrey in the third inning to give Oakland a 3-1 lead. Donaldson added an RBI single in the sixth inning to extend the lead to 6-1.

Donaldson is batting .368 (7 for 19) over his last four games, raising his season average from .091 to .220. He has five RBI in nine games -- all coming in his last four games.

Josh Donaldson about to begin hot streak?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Even after a two-hit performance Monday at Minnesota, which included his first double, Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson expressed disappointment with his slow start. He's batting just .161 through seven games.

"I don’t feel good at the plate right now," Donaldson said after Monday's game, per Bay Area News. "I’m trying to battle through it. My problem right now is with my contact point. I’m catching the ball in front or too deep. It’s been a little frustrating. But so far we haven’t played a lot of games."

The good news is that Donaldson was batting just .120 through seven games last season and finished the year with a breakout campaign. Manager Bob Melvin said Donaldson's double to right-center Monday is a good sign.

"He’s at his best going to right-center like that," Melvin said.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson went 1 for 4 in Wednesday's 13-3 win over the Indians after missing the last two days with calf tightness.

Donaldson is just 8 for 34 this spring but does have two home runs, seven RBI and five walks to his credit. He'll be looking for a repeat of last year's breakout season in 2014.
