The Blue Jays are hoping to move infielder Josh Donaldson.
Toronto is aiming to have the 32-year-old third baseman, who has been out since May 28 with a calf injury, begin a rehab assignment next week. It then plans to put Donaldson on waivers in an effort to deal him before the end of the month, according to a report from Fancred Sports’ Jon Heyman.
Jays hope is to start Josh Donaldson’s rehab next week, put him on trade waivers when he’s ready to play in majors and find a trade partner.
