      Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Collects three hits

      Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with a double Thursday against the Mariners.Donaldson had been in a prolonged slump since returning to the lineup, recording only five hits in 29 at-bats entering Thursday's game.

While there have been no indications from the team that his shoulder injury is hindering his performance, he is now slugging just .494 in 79 at-bats -- his lowest mark since 2014.

      Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Activated ahead of twin bill

      The Toronto Blue Jays activated Josh Donaldson (shoulder) from the 10-day disabled list Thursday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.Donaldson missed just over three weeks with right shoulder inflammation, but the Blue Jays are confident the star third baseman won't experience any further issues with his throwing after taking the time off to recover from the injury. The 32-year-old recently completed a two-game rehab assignment at High-A Dunedin, going 2-for-5 with a walk in those contests. Perhaps more importantly, Donaldson logged seven innings at the hot corner Tuesday and made crisp throws on each of three occasions he needed to retire a batter at first base. The Blue Jays haven't revealed their lineup for the first game of their doubleheader Thursday against the Indians, but it's generally expected that Donaldson will start at third base in at least one of the contests while heading to the bench or serving as the designated hitter for the other contest.

      Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Likely to be activated Thursday

      Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Plays seven innings in rehab game

      Josh Donaldson (shoulder) went 2-for-2 with a walk while playing seven innings at third base Tuesday in a rehab game at High-A Dunedin.Per John Lott of The Athletic Toronto, Donaldson made a fielding error, but handled the other three groundballs he received on the day and successfully threw out the runner at first base. That provides some optimism that his shoulder is no longer inhibiting his throwing, but Donaldson will still probably need to get in another game or two in the minors before the Toronto Blue Jays consider bringing him back from the 10-day disabled list, likely at some point over the weekend.

      Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Returning to field Tuesday

      Josh Donaldson (shoulder) will play third base in a rehab game Tuesday, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.Donaldson was able to act as the designated hitter in his first rehab game Saturday, but it seems like he'll finally be able to return to the hot corner in an actual game shortly. No firm timetable for his return has been released, though Chisholm noted that a return Friday when the Toronto Blue Jays play in Tampa Bay would make sense given that Donaldson is currently rehabbing with the team's affiliate in Dunedin, which is less than an hour away from Tropicana Field.

      Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Goes hitless in first rehab game

      Josh Donaldson (shoulder) went 0-for-3 while serving as the designated hitter for High-A Dunedin in a rehab game Saturday.According to Hazel Mae of Sportsnet, Toronto Blue Jays skipper John Gibbons said Sunday that Donaldson could be on pace to return from the 10-day disabled list next weekend, ahead of Toronto's three-game road set in Tampa. Donaldson's activation will likely be contingent on him playing third base and throwing across the diamond without any issue during the rehab assignment. The limitations the shoulder presented defensively for Donaldson were at the root of his placement on the DL earlier this month, as he had been slashing a palatable .239/.352/.457 prior to the shutdown.
