Josh Donaldson homers, Blue Jays sweep Orioles
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson went 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and two RBI as his team was able to complete a sweep of the Orioles with a 7-6 victory Thursday.
Donaldson's two-run homer capped a three-run third inning, and the Blue Jays were able add on three more runs in the fourth inning and another in the fifth, the last of which proving to be crucial after the Orioles scored six runs in the final four innings. The third baseman has hit .349/.400/.635 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 63 at-bats.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson hits walk-off HR in 11th inning on Saturday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/18/15) Josh Donaldson's solo home run in the bottom of the 11th inning broke a 5-5 tie and gave the Blue Jays a walk-off win over the Braves on Saturday.
That is Donaldson's fourth walk-off home run over the last two seasons -- more than 23 teams have in that span.
'"As a baseball player, as any competitor, you enjoy moments where you can win the game for your team," Donaldson said.
"Not everybody can do that," manager John Gibbons said after Donaldson crushed a 1-0 changeup from Braves reliever Sugar Ray Marimon. "Donaldson is one of those guys. He's so focused, he's not just up there swinging ... He has a plan."
Valencia, Tolleson in lineup; Donaldson at DH vs. LHP Wood
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) The Blue Jays moved Josh Donaldson to designated hitter and included Danny Valencia and Steve Tolleson in the lineup Saturday afternoon against Braves left-hander Alex Wood, according to the Toronto Star. Donaldson remained in his normal No. 2 hole, while Valencia will bat fifth and Tolleson eighth.
Blue Jays decision to hit Josh Donaldson in No. 2 spot pays off
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was pleased with his decision to move third baseman Josh Donaldson to second in the batting order Wednesday against the Rays.
Donaldson, who spent the first eight games of the season in the No. 5, singled in the opening frame and scored on a two-run homer by Jose Bautista. He finished 3 for 5 with two singles, a double, two runs scored and three RBI in a 12-7 victory over the Rays.
"Donaldson I thought might be a good guy there, thought we'd give him a try now," Gibbons said of moving Donaldson from the fifth spot. "You always like your top hitters there. They might get that extra at-bat. He's up there setting the table. He's a threat."
Donaldson has four games with at least two hits, including two in as many days. He is hitting .286 with three doubles, three walks and six RBI in nine games.
|2014 summary: Josh Donaldson was a surprise entry among the top-ranking third basemen in Fantasy in 2013, and he turned in an even better performance in his follow-up season. Donaldson smacked 29 home runs, drove in 98 runs and scored 93 times -- all improvements on his previous season's numbers. Only his .255 batting average stood as a sign of regression, as Donaldson struck out more often and hit fewer line drives. It all added up to a No. 3 ranking among third basemen in standard points leagues and a No. 4 ranking in Rotisserie leagues. Donaldson was part of the Athletics' "fall cleaning," as he was dealt to the Blue Jays in a five-player deal.|
Playing time status: Donaldson will be the Blue Jays' regular third baseman, and with a record of durability over the last two seasons, he has a chance to rack up his second straight 600 at-bat season.
2015 outlook: Moving from one of the American League's worst home run parks to one of the best, Donaldson's already lofty Fantasy value should get a boost. He is now arguably the most valuable third baseman in Fantasy (with the possible exception of Anthony Rendon) and in standard mixed leagues, he should be drafted early in the second round at the latest.
