Donaldson suffered a setback with his injured left calf and will be reevaluated in three weeks, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Donaldson (calf) is not expected to rejoin the Blue Jays on their current road series in Anaheim or Houston but, with a smooth recovery, could be activated during their next homestand that starts June 29, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports. The third baseman is working out in Florida and will be sent on a minor-league rehab assignment when he proves capable of game activities. Fantasy managers setting lineups next week may only get a three-game series out of Donaldson, who's hasn't seen game action since May 28.
Donaldson (calf) will not travel with the Blue Jays when they travel to Los Angeles on Thursday to begin a four-game series with the Angels, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
