Blue Jays, Donaldson avoid arbitration with record deal

Third baseman Josh Donaldson and the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday broke the record for the highest salary among players eligible for arbitration, reaching agreement on a one-year deal for $23 million, a source told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, confirming multiple reports. Harper, like Donaldson, will be a free agent after this season and agreed in May to a 2018 salary of $21.625 million.

The settlement will pay the three-time All-Star $23 million in 2018 after making $17 million in 2017, he now surpasses Russell Martin and Troy Tulowitzki as the highest paid player on the roster.

Will the Blue Jays trade their star third baseman? Not signing the 32-year-old to a long-term extension will allow him to walk in free agency this winter.

Toronto Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera scores on a sacrifice fly by Josh Donaldson as New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez (24) applies the late tag during the eighth inning of a baseball game Saturday, Sept.30, 2017, at Yankee Stadium in New York. The team and player bypassed having an arbitrator determine Donaldson's 2018 salary by resolving his contract status for the coming season.

The 2015 American League MVP appeared in only 113 games last season, sidelined early in the season with a calf injury and hobbled at different points the rest of the way. He hit.270 with a.385 on-base percentage and 33 homers. "And I tend to agree with them". "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". The Blue Jays still have to get deals done with Roberto Osuna, Marcus Stroman, Kevin Pillar, Aaron Sanchez, Devon Travis and Dominic Leone.
