Twins' Josh Donaldson: Launches homer No. 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to the White Sox.

Donaldson led off the sixth with a solo blast to left to bring the Twins within a run. He subsequently led off the eighth with a single and came around to score on a two-run shot from Jorge Polanco to give the Twins their first lead of the game at 5-4. The 35-year-old swatted his second round tripper over his last five games and generated his second multi-hit effort over that span too. Donaldson doesn't have as much pop in his bat as he used to but is still having a productive year, slashing .251/.354/.490 with 15 homers, 39 RBI, 42 runs scored and a 42:59 BB:K over 297 plate appearances.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson (hamstring) is starting Thursday's game against the Tigers.

Donaldson had missed the last four games due to right hamstring soreness, but he ran the bases as part of a full workout ahead of Thursday's matchup, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. He apparently checked out fine after his workout and will start at third base and bat second in his return to the lineup.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Twins' Josh Donaldson: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Right hamstring tightness will sideline Donaldson for the series finale after he exited Saturday's contest with the injury. The Twins have provided no further updates on the third baseman's condition, so he should still be considered day-to-day. Luis Arraez is starting at third base and batting leadoff Sunday.

Twins' Josh Donaldson: Homers in third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Wednesday in the Twins' 13-3 loss to the White Sox.

For the second straight day, Donaldson homered in his first at-bat of the game, and he's now left the yard in three consecutive contests to boost his season total to 13. While the 33-45 Twins have been one of baseball's biggest disappointments this season, it's been through little fault on the part of Donaldson, who continues to play at a high level in his age-35 campaign. He's currently sporting an OPS over .800 for the sixth straight season, and his 19.4 percent strikeout rate is his lowest since 2016.

He's striking out at his lowest rate since 2016 and continues to produce at the plate with five hits, three RBI and two runs scored in his last three games.
