    • Donaldson hit .292/.320/.417 with three doubles and a 7:1 K:BB in 25 Grapefruit League plate appearances. Donaldson has been a mentor to many of the Twins hitting prospects who were in big-league camp, talking hitting philosophies and swing mechanics with some while working with Royce Lewis and Travis Blankenhorn in the infield, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Donaldson will be ready to hit in the middle of the Twins' lineup when play resumes.

    • Donaldson signed a four-year contract with the Twins on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. According to Jeff Passan of ESPN.com, the deal is worth $92 million guaranteed and includes a fifth-year option that would push the value over $100 million, placing the 2015 American League MVP into a Twins lineup that already led the league in home runs last season. Donaldson had an impressive year himself in 2019 with the Braves, posting a .259/.379/.521 slash line with 37 home runs and 94 RBI in 155 games. Miguel Sano started 90 games at third base last season and just signed a three-year, $30 million extension with Minnesota last week, but he figures to be shifted to first base while Donaldson takes over at the hot corner.

    • Donaldson rejected his qualifying offer Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. The move isn't entirely surprising, as Donaldson could be in line for a big payday after playing on a one-year deal with the Braves last year. The 33-year-old rebounded from a disappointing 2018 season by hitting .259/.379/.521 with 37 home runs and 94 RBI in 2019.

    • Donaldson received a qualifying offer from the Braves on Monday. Donaldson may be heading into his age-34 season, but he should still be worth far more than one year and $17.8 million after hitting .259/.379/.521 with 37 homers last season. The Braves likely don't expect anything more than draft-pick compensation from their offer.

    • Donaldson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 13-1 loss to the Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLDS. The home run was a solo blast in the fourth inning off of St. Louis starter Jack Flaherty, Donaldson's only long ball of the series. The 33-year-old went just 3-for-19 (.158) in the NLDS but enjoyed a terrific first year overall in the National League. Donaldson slashed .259/.379/.521 in 155 regular-season games with 37 homers and 94 RBI, proving he was past the injuries that plagued him throughout the 2018 season. Donaldson played on a one-year contract in 2019 and will once again be a free agent entering the offseason.
