Veteran third baseman Josh Donaldson seems like he isn’t too eager to get off the free-agent market despite the increased interest in his services. Donaldson entered 2020 as an unsigned player despite recent reports that he has contract offers in the range of $100 million from three MLB teams.

Donaldson had a great season with the Braves, playing 155 games and batting .259 with 37 home runs and 94 RBIs. Entering the offseason, he was considered the second-best third baseman available on the market after Anthony Rendon.

According to MLB Network Mark Feinsand, Donaldson received a four-year, $100 million contract offer from Atlanta Braves, with whom he spent the 2019 season. Minnesota Twins and Washington Nationals have also put the similar offers for the 34-year-old while Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers being in the race as well. 

Prior to joining Braves in 2019, Josh Donaldson also played with Oakland Athletics, Toronto Blue Jays, and Cleveland Indians. He has three All-Star appearances and two Silver Slugger Awards to his name while winning American League MVP back in 2015.

Donaldson’s career stats include .273 batting average, 219 homers, and 645 RBIs.
