The Toronto Blue Jays avoided Salary Arb with five players including Josh Donaldson.
Josh Donaldson's now the #BlueJays' highest-paid player, passing Russell Martin & Troy Tulowitzki

23 million and no term is a natural bullet for a contending team to bite trade deadline when the Jays field a team of guys who spent most of the year in Buffalo and you know I’m right because that’s what I do.
Vlad and Bichette will be at the corners, JD will be in STL and Tickets will 0still be overpriced.
I’m over the bullshit “window is now” thing and on to “let’s build a new fucking house,” and that salary arb should be your first indication the Jays are too.
Anywho. Enjoy him while you can. Here are JD’s highlights from 2016 for no particular reason other than a pre fond farewell.
With any luck, he’ll get traded to the Mets So he can rekindle his romance with former Jays reporter Jackie Redmond that might have happened, but no one addressed cuz it probably happened and was the worst kept rumor ever even though it’s just a rumor.
