The contract gives Donaldson a $6 million raise while also making the three-time all star the highest paid player on the Jays’ roster.

Donaldson rebounded from an injury-slowed 2017 to hit .270 last season with 33 homers and 78 runs batted in over 113 games. The sure-handed infielder missed time from April 14 through May 25 with a calf injury, which also hampered him during spring training.

Donaldson has a .285 batting average with 111 home runs and 300 RBIs over three seasons in Toronto.
