Josh Donaldson (calf) expected to be fine by start of season for Toronto
Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson (calf) is making his Grapefruit League debut on Monday versus the Minnesota Twins.
Donaldson will bat third while serving as the designated hitter for Toronto. Barring any setbacks, he's expected to be fine for the start of the season after straining his right calf in the early goings of spring training. In 2016, Donaldson cranked 37 home runs with 99 RBI's and a .284 batting average across 700 plate appearances.
numberFire's models expect Donaldson to post 36 home runs with 108 RBI's across 655 plate appearances next season while recording a .273 batting average and .904 OPS.
