  • Blue Jays placed 3B Josh Donaldson on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 11, with right shoulder inflammation.<p><b>Advice</b>: Donaldson has battled a balky throwing shoulder since spring training. He recently underwent additional tests, which showed no new injury and no structural damage. However, the Jays say that the third baseman's "throwing ability has not improved to his desired level," so they'll shut him down for a while. It's unclear how long he'll be out. Yangervis Solarte will handle third base while Donaldson is out.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/LottOnBaseball/status/984870268756742144">John Lott on Twitter</a></p>
