Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson homers, doubles in win Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson totaled three hits, including his 20th double and 19th home run, in five at-bats during an 11-2 win Wednesday against the Red Sox. He finished with two runs, two RBI and one strikeout.

Both of his RBI came on a one-out home run off of Jonathan Aro in the eighth inning. It was his second home run in four games and his fourth home run since June 1.

Donaldson is batting .283 (15 for 53) with two home runs, five doubles, six RBI, eight runs, five walks and 17 strikeouts in his last 13 games.


GM: Blue Jays planning no extension talks with Josh Donaldson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Donaldson has more than lived up to expectations this season with a slash line of .301/.360/.540 and 48 RBI. He is enjoying arguably his best season, but the lack of motivation to extend him is understandable. He is locked up through 2018.
