Blue Jays Josh Donaldson avoid arbitration with record deal

Blue Jays Josh Donaldson avoid arbitration with record deal

Third baseman Josh Donaldson and the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday broke the record for the highest salary among players eligible for arbitration, reaching agreement on a one-year deal for $23 million, a source told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, confirming multiple reports. Not signing the 32-year-old to a long-term extension will allow him to walk in free agency this winter.

The Donaldson deal is a record, the previous record for an arbitration-eligible player was Bryce Harper's $21.625 million for the 2018 season. Toronto seems intent on keeping Donaldson heading into the season, but he'll be a hot trade candidate in July if they fall out of contention. The 2016 AL ERA leader was projected to earn $1.9 million in 2018 after a disappointing 2017 season and the lingering blister issues. Still, he managed to hit 33 home runs and drive in 78 runs in under 500 plate appearances.
