Player Notes
An MRI on Josh Donaldson's right calf revealed only a mild strain.

Advice: Donaldson tweaked his calf while running sprints last Friday, but the Blue Jays think they've dodged a bullet here. "It's not a significant [strain]," general manager Ross Atkins said Monday. "So we're optimistic that he'll be back on his feet and moving pretty quickly." Barring a setback, the star third baseman should be fine come Opening Day.

Josh Donaldson (calf) was walking around on crutches Sunday and is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

Advice: Donaldson suffered a strained right calf while running on Friday. He should be fine for Opening Day as long as he can avoid a setback, but the Blue Jays will obviously take a cautious approach with their star third baseman. Donaldson has played at least 155 games each of the last four seasons.

Josh Donaldson's MRI revealed a right calf strain.

Advice: He suffered the injury while running on Friday. The Blue Jays say Donaldson will be treated daily and are optimistic he'll be ready for Opening Day. Donaldson has been remarkably durable throughout his career, missing just 19 games over his last four seasons. Unless we hear of a setback, Donaldson remains a borderline first-round pick in redraft formats.

Josh Donaldson was sent for a precautionary MRI on Saturday after feeling a small tweak in his right calf while running on Friday.

Advice: The team is still awaiting the results of that exam. Donaldson suffered a similar calf strain early during the 2016 season and didn't miss any time because of it. This shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the regular season.

Josh Donaldson skipped the Blue Jays first full workout on Saturday after feeling something in his right calf.

Advice: It doesn't sound as anything more than a precautionary measure, but the club should have an update on his status later in the day. Donaldson has proven to be one of the most durable players in all of baseball, averaging 157 games per year over the past four seasons.
