Blue Jays, Donaldson avoid arbitration with record deal

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, 32, has been the subject of numerous trade rumours this offseason, with the St Louis Cardinals seemingly the most aggressive in bidding for his services.

In 113 games a year ago, Donaldson hit.270 with 33 home runs, 78 RBI and a.403 wOBA. I enjoy what we've been able to build in this organization. "Everything in any relationship and any negotiation, when you do agree on something is certainly a positive".

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

Carrera, who hit.282 with eight home runs and 20 RBIs last season, signed for $1.9 million.

"Josh is huge component to our team and (The Canadian Press) to our success - what he brings not only on the baseball field, but in the clubhouse", Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez told reporters reporters before an event at a school in Burnaby, B.C., as part of the club's winter tour.

"I let my people handle it". The Blue Jays still have to get deals done with Roberto Osuna, Marcus Stroman, Kevin Pillar, Aaron Sanchez, Devon Travis and Dominic Leone.

Stroman, who won a career-high 13 games in 2017 while boasting a 3.09 ERA, required an arbitration hearing past year before securing a $3.4 million salary.

When asked about his uncertain status Friday morning in an interview on MLB Network before news broke about his new contract, Donaldson stated his desire to remain with the Blue Jays before casually saying he is fine no matter what Toronto's front office decides about his future. "It's a compliment that there are other teams that feel their team would be better with me on it".
