Josh Donaldson and Blue Jays close after exchanging arbitration figures


Josh Donaldson and the Blue Jays were not far apart when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

The reigning AL MVP asked for $11.8 million while the Blue Jays offered the 30-year-old $11.35 million.

Coming off a season in which he hit .297/.371/.568 with 41 home runs, a league-best 123 RBI and an MLB-best 122 runs, Donaldson is expected to again be a big part of the Blue Jays lineup next season.
