Josh Donaldson gets record amount for arbitration-eligible player
13 January, 2018, 05:43
In a roundabout way, the 26-year-old's wish will be granted when he's communicating directly with the Toronto Blues Jays front office in an arbitrator's hearing room in Phoenix next month after not being able to come to terms on a contract prior to Friday's deadline to exchange arbitration numbers. A career.277 hitter, Donaldson has hit at least 29 home runs in each of the last four seasons. He will be eligible for free agency following the 2018 season.
The record-setting $23 million is a $6 million dollar raise from last season and a significant jump from what many industry experts had prognosticated for Donaldson.
Last year, Stroman won his arbitration case, being awarded $3.4 million, rather than the Jays' offer of $3.1 million in the first year he was arbitration eligible.
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.

Toronto also agreed Friday to one-year deals with outfielder Ezequiel Carrera ($1.9 million) and left-hander Aaron Loup ($1,812,500).
Since new deals are permitted until the hearings start, Toronto could still avoid arbitration with Stroman and Osuna but it's unlikely considering the team's strategy historically. "Where that ends, we'll see".
