Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson has been acquired by the Indians, the clubs confirmed Friday. "We've seen repeated examples of guys willing to make either personally hard decisions, or in some cases, sacrifices to help the team win".
"He's great player, man", Encarnacion said after the Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 and before the trade was official.
The Blue Jays are also picking up a portion of his salary, as Donaldson is owed close to $4 million over the final month of the regular season.
The Indians will come to Toronto for a four game series against the Blue Jays beginning September 6.
Trump Announces Pay Increase Freeze for Federal Employees
President Trump wrote Thursday that federal agency budgets could not sustain a planned pay increase for most civilian employees. Under the law, the 2.1 percent raise takes effect automatically unless the president and Congress act to change it.
In 2015, he helped vanquish the longest active postseason drought in baseball with the Toronto Blue Jays.
A player to be named later is the epitome of an unknown return, which isn't terribly inspiring given what the marketplace would have yielded for Donaldson before the season.
Donaldson is one of the best third basemen in the game when healthy, but the problem is, the 2015 MVP hasn't been able to play since May 28.
He earned the 2015 AL most valuable player award after hitting.297 with 41 homers and 123 RBIs.
Serena Williams Plays in Tutu After Her Catsuit Is Banned
The 36-year-old downed 68th-ranked Magda Linette of Poland 6-4 6-0 in her first home slam since becoming a mother. Murray, who said he didn't think it was realistic that he could win the title, could play 2009 U.S.
Donaldson ends his Blue Jays tenure with 116 home runs and a.281/.383/.548 batting line over four seasons.
Granderson, who signed a one-year, $5-million deal in January, was hitting.243 with 11 home runs and a.769 OPS through 103 games with the Blue Jays. "But we feel we've built that in appropriately with the structure of the deal and spent quite a bit of time talking with the Blue Jays on how we appropriately balance that risk".
Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez was a 23-year-old sophomore during that milestone campaign. Talks did not progress, however, and Donaldson instead entered his free agent year without a contract.
The danger in this scenario is that Donaldson would accept the offer which is not something the Blue Jays reportedly would like to happen. He is now on a minor league rehab assignment.
