Donaldson, 32, has been the subject of numerous trade rumors this offseason, with the Cardinals seemingly the most aggressive in bidding for his services. "We knew that was going to happen".

The Blue Jays spent a good portion of the winter listening to trade offers for Donaldson as they face the decision of whether to send him away while getting value in return or possibly losing him with no compensation as a free agent.

The Toronto Blue Jays are keeping Josh Donaldson around for at least another year.

Donaldson was eligible for salary arbitration after being paid $17 million last year in the final season of a two-year, $28.65 million contract. Donaldson hit.270/.385/.559 with 33 home runs and 78 RBI as the Jays slumped and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2015.

The 2015 American League MVP appeared in only 113 games last season, sidelined early in the season with a calf injury and hobbled at different points the rest of the way.

When asked if his relationship with Bannon is permanently broken, Trump stated, "I don't know what the word permanent means". Trumpism, understood correctly, at its core, could always be summed up as Donald Trump first.


Carrera earned $1,162,500 last season, when the 30-year-old Venezuelan played every outfield spot and batted.282 with eight homers and 20 RBIs in a career-high 131 games for the Blue Jays - 91 of those in left field. "Great dude to be around, great leader".

"The fact of the matter is, I really enjoy where I am at right now", Donaldson said on the Hot Stove program Friday.

Marcus Stroman, Roberto Osuna, Aaron Sanchez, Kevin Pillar, Devon Travis and Dominic Leone are the club's other eligible players.

Stroman, who won a career-high 13 games in 2017 while boasting a 3.09 ERA, required an arbitration hearing a year ago before securing a $3.4 million salary. "The industry has seen that more and more teams are willing to go and agencies are more willing to go".
