Josh Donaldson, 38, who barely continued his major league career after being released, has opted for an extension instead of retirement. He will retire after the 2024 season.
Donaldson, who is eligible for free agency on Nov. 21, has expressed a desire to play one more year instead of retiring, according to The Score in Canada.
However, Donaldson is not currently looking to extend his career beyond two years. He will retire after the 2024 season레모나토토
This could mean that he doesn’t want to end his major league career with a dismal performance this season and a history of releases.
Donaldson, a 13-year major leaguer, was released after 33 games with the New York Yankees this season. He didn’t play much due to frequent injuries and didn’t perform well.
Donaldson then signed with the Milwaukee Brewers and made it to the postseason. His performance didn’t improve much in Milwaukee either.
Donaldson was once the best third baseman in the majors, winning the American League Most Valuable Player (MVP) award in 2015. He is a three-time All-Star and a two-time Silver Slugger.
In 1383 career games, he batted .261 with 279 home runs, 816 doubles, 816 RBI, 1310 runs scored, a .358 OPS, and a .847 slugging percentage.
His best season came in 2015, his first year with the Toronto Blue Jays, when he hit 41 home runs, 123 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.939.
