Yankees release third baseman Josh Donaldson

The New York Yankees have parted ways with former MVP third baseman Josh Donaldson, 38.

The Yankees officially announced on Tuesday that they have released Donaldson.

Donaldson, the 2015 American League MVP, three-time All-Star, and two-time Silver Slugger, had a dismal showing for the Yankees this season.

Hamstring and calf injuries limited him to 33 games, and in those games he did play, he batted just .142 with a .225 on-base percentage and .434 slugging percentage.

He did hit 10 home runs to show that his power was still there, but the rest of his numbers didn’t live up to expectations.

He’s currently on the 60-day disabled list and won’t return until September 16.

If any team wants to use him in the postseason, they should make a deal before August ends. He’s available for the minimum salary.온라인카지노

Donaldson has played 13 seasons and 1366 games in the majors, batting .262 with a .359 on-base percentage and .491 slugging percentage.

This was the final year of his four-year, $92 million contract with the Minnesota Twins. He has a team option for the 2024 season.

The Yankees acquired him in a trade that sent Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela to Minnesota in March 2022, along with Isaiah Kainer-Palepa and Ben Roethlisberger.
