Blue Jays | Toronto negotiating with Josh Donaldson

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 17:14:42 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said the team is "going to work toward a multiyear deal" with 3B Josh Donaldson.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson and the Jays are scheduled to have a salary arbitration hearing later this month, with the two sides just $450,000 apart. He is seeking a one-year deal worth $11.8 million, while Toronto has countered with an offer worth $11.35 million. Ideally, the team would like to have the 30-year-old slugger locked up for several years, especially if he can duplicate his .297-41-123 stat line from 2015. Donaldson is arguably the top third baseman in baseball and should be a first-round draft selection in all fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | Toronto sluggers struggled against Young

Tue, 20 Oct 2015 10:03:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (1-for-16), SS Troy Tulowitzki (2-for-11) and OF Jose Bautista (3-for-16) have all struggled in their careers against Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young, the Game 4 starter Tuesday, Oct. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Young has pitched well for the Royals as a swing man this year. However, despite the bad career results in limited at-bats against Young, all of Toronto's sluggers aren't bad picks on FantasyScore in Game 4 in an excellent hitting environment against a fly-ball pitcher.
