MLB News: Twins Sign 3B Josh Donaldson
Jeff Passan of ESPN says the deal is four years, $84 million guaranteed that includes an option for a fifth season that could bring the total to $104 million.
Donaldson, 34, had a resurgence in 2019 in which he hit .259/.379/.521 with 37 home runs and 94 RBI to give himself a 132 wRC+.
He was an elite defender this past season as well with 15 DRS and a 2.4 UZR at the hot corner. Overall, he had a 4.9 fWAR and 6.1 bWAR.
Both the Braves and Nationals were serious bidders for Donaldson, but luckily for the Mets he is leaving the National League East.
