Blue Jays Josh Donaldson avoid arbitration with record deal

According to SportsNet's Shi Davidi, the Toronto Blue Jays and third baseman Josh Donaldson have agreed to a one-year, $23 million deal to avoid going to arbitration.

Although this figure isn't particularly surprising considering Donaldson's abilities, it marks the largest arbitration agreement in the history of the league. The team will have to make a decision on his future after this season as the 32-year old is a free agent at the end of the season. The team and player bypassed having an arbitrator determine Donaldson's 2018 salary by resolving his contract status for the coming season.

The new deal surpasses the mark set by Bryce Harper who made $21.625 million previous year but while the news might seem encouraging to Blue Jays fans, it does not provide any indication of what this means about his future.

Toronto also agreed Friday to one-year deals with outfielder Ezequiel Carrera for $1.9 million, left-hander Aaron Loup for $1,812,500, outfielder Kevin Pillar for $3.25 million, right-hander Aaron Sanchez for $2.7 million, second baseman Devon Travis for $1.45 million and right-hander Dominic Leone for $1,085,000. A career.277 hitter, Donaldson has hit at least 29 home runs in each of the last four seasons.

There is speculation that if the Jays don't sign him to a long-term deal, he may be traded this upcoming season if the club does not get off to a good start and falls out of the playoff picture. He hit.270 with a.385 on-base percentage and 33 homers.

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. "The fact of the matter is, I really enjoy where I'm at right now and I enjoy being a Toronto Blue Jay and enjoy what we've been able to build in this organization and I'm very happy".
