Player Notes
Josh Donaldson's new two-year deal with the Blue Jays is worth $28.65 million, according to the Associated Press.

Advice: Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reported late Monday night that the two sides had agreed to a deal worth around $29 million, but now we have the exact number. Donaldson won his arbitration case against the Blue Jays last winter, but the two sides were able to avoid a hearing this time around. The 2015 AL MVP will still be under team control for one more year after this new deal expires.

Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays have signed Josh Donaldson to a two-year contract worth nearly $29 million.

Advice: The Blue Jays are a file and trial team, so they needed to reach a multi-year pact in order to avoid an arbitration hearing next week. Donaldson's new contract leaves him with one more year of arbitration eligibility before he hits free agency after the 2018 campaign. The reigning American League MVP batted .297/.371/.568 with 41 home runs, 123 RBI and 122 runs scored in 2015.

Josh Donaldson's arbitration hearing with the Blue Jays is set for February 15.

Advice: The Blue Jays were a "file-and-trial" team under former general manager Alex Anthopoulos, and president Mark Shapiro has said the club plans to continue that approach for at least this season. The hope is that a long-term contract between the two sides will be worked out, but it's unclear how good the chances are of that happening. Donaldson is under team control through 2018.

Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said the team is "going to work toward a multi-year deal" with Josh Donaldson.

Advice: Donaldson is under team control through 2018, giving the team some leverage, but the reigning AL MVP surely won't sign on for a long-term deal cheaply. Presently, the two sides are just $450,000 apart in arbitration figures filed last month, so there shouldn't be any problem getting something done for 2016 if extension talks don't progress. The third baseman is a fantasy monster heading into the season after batting .297/.371/.568 with 41 home runs, 123 RBI and 122 runs scored last year.
