Donaldson will miss Cleveland’s series against the Blue Jays this

The Bringer of Rain, who was traded to Cleveland on Friday, will not be with the Indians for a four-game weekend series in Toronto after being placed on the 10-day disabled list on Monday.

Donaldson is playing third base and batting second on Monday for Triple-A Columbus.

It's not immediately known where Donaldson will go after today's game in Columbus as the Clippers were nosed out of a playoff spot.

Donaldson has been sidelined since May 29 with a left calf strain.

Millman 'a little guilty' after shocking sub-par Federer
Open, the upset fit the narrative. "I just thought it was very hot tonight", Federer said after his fourth-round defeat. I'll obviously remember this for a long, long time. 'In all honesty, Roger's a hero of mine' , Millman said.

That was good enough to Cleveland to sign off on acquiring him from Toronto, but he apparently isn't quite ready to dive back into a full schedule.

Donaldson has played in only 36 games this season and none in the majors since May 28. With his DL stint made retroactive to September 1, Donaldson will be eligible to join Cleveland on September 11, when the Indians are scheduled to face the Tampa Bay Rays.

Over the course of his eight-year career, the 32-year-old has compiled a.275 batting average, 179 home runs and 544 runs batted in.

The Cleveland Indians don't know when Josh Donaldson will be ready to contribute on the field, but he says he's getting closer to his debut.
