Multiple teams interested in Josh Donaldson

Coincidentally, the Blue Jays and Indians face off during a four-game set at Rogers Centre beginning next Thursday, September 6th.

Before this season, Donaldson was a perennial MVP candidate widely regarded as one of baseball's best players. Well, another huge deal could transpire over the next few days, as a former MVP will become available.

To be sure, Donaldson is still getting over a calf injury that has cost him much of a season in which he hasn't hit like the superstar he once was.

After almost four seasons with the Blue Jays, Josh Donaldson's tenure in Toronto has come to an end.

After coming over from the Oakland Athletics for Brett Lawrie in arguably the most lopsided trade in franchise history, Donaldson quickly developed into a fan favourite due to his flair for late-game heroics, ability to deliver clutch hits and walk-off dramatics, an offensive skillset complimented beautifully by a strong defensive game, and a willingness to seemingly do anything to his body to make an out.

Baseball people were buzzing Friday that Josh Donaldson, for some reason, did not want to be traded.


Long-term, there was an obvious issue with Donaldson staying at third base for the Blue Jays, since the club's top prospect, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who is knocking loudly on the major league door, also plays that position.

As Morosi writes, "sources say the Cardinals have emerged as a suitor for Donaldson because of infield injuries of their own". Playing just 36 games and having faced multiple setbacks and questionable injury timelines, it hasn't been the year that anyone was hoping for. With the game tied with two out and nobody on in the bottom of the ninth, Donaldson went HAM on a Steve Geltz slider and crushed it over the left field wall to keep Toronto four games up on NY in the division race.

The danger in this scenario is that Donaldson would accept the offer which is not something the Blue Jays reportedly would like to happen.

The Toronto Blue Jays moved out an injured star and didn't get a whole lot in return.

It was a good run while it lasted, eh, Blue Jays fans?
