Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Interested in signing extension with Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson expressed interest in signing a contract extension with the Blue Jays while talking to reporters on Sunday, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.

"I've made it known to our front office that I enjoy being a Toronto Blue Jay, that I enjoy my time here," Donaldson said. "If it's a possibility, I would definitely enjoy being a Blue Jay for a long time. I'm not going to sit here and try to force their hand, and they're not going to sit here and force mine." Donaldson finished the season on a high note after battling a calf injury in the first half, hitting .276/.386/.606 with 24 homers and 53 RBI in 67 games after the All-Star break. Donaldson will go to arbitration for the final time this offseason, so the Jays have one year of control remaining if they want to keep him without making a long-term commitment.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Out of Sunday lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees.

Donaldson will give way to Darwin Barney at the hot corner Sunday afternoon. Donaldson dealt with injuries throughout the year and was only able to play in 113 games. He was extremely efficient in that time, as he slugged 33 home runs and notched 78 RBI. However, he did experience a dip in terms of average, as he hit .270 this season, down from his 2016 mark of .284.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Being pursued by St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals plan to make a strong push to acquire Donaldson at the conclusion of the 2017 season, Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reports.

Donaldson, who is in the final year of arbitration eligibility, is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2018. If the Cardinals were to acquire the 31-year-old veteran, its lineup would immediately receive an offensive boost, but Donaldson's output isn't guaranteed the same results. Since making the Rogers Centre his home in 2015, the MVP third baseman owns a .301 batting average with a .996 OPS and 165 wRC+ through 214 games at his home field in Toronto. During that same stretch, Donaldson's numbers take a noticeable dip when on the road, hitting just .271 with a .901 OPS and 144 wRC+ over 210 games. Dynasty owners should monitor this situation closely, as a move out of the hitter-friendly Rogers Centre would likely decrease Donaldson's preseason value next year.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Uncorks two more long balls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo homers against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Both came off star left-hander Chris Sale, and they pushed Donaldson's homer total to 33 in just 110 games this season. If not for the time he missed to injury earlier this year, Donaldson would surely have cleared 40 long balls by now, and while his batting average is down from the last two seasons, he's drawing walks at a higher pace while unleashing his power stroke with regularity. At 31 years old, he should have a number of seasons left as one of the game's top third basemen.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Homers in three-hit effort Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson went 3-for-3 with a solo home runs, three RBI and a walk in Monday's game against Boston.

Donaldson continued his late-season surge by tacking on his eighth home run, and 17th RBI of the month. The long ball also marked his MLB-leading 14th first-inning homer of the year, and dating back to Aug. 1, only Giancarlo Stanton (24) and J.D. Martinez (22) have more blasts than Donaldson (20).
