According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the Minnesota Twins have agreed to terms with free agent third baseman Josh Donaldson on a four-year deal.

After being limited to 52 games by injuries in 2018, Donaldson signed a one-year, $23 million contract with the Braves last offseason.

It will pay him $84 million over the first four years and includes a $16 million club option with an $8 million buyout.

In 2019 he hit 37 home runs, batted in 94 runs and posted a.259 batting average in 155 games with the Braves. The third baseman would spend 3.5 seasons north of the border hitting.281/.383/.548 with 116 homers and a 21.6 WAR in 462 games with Toronto.

The 34-year-old is a career.273/.369/.509 hitter and has spent time with the Oakland Athletics, Blue Jays, Cleveland Indians and Braves. Rendon signed a seven-year, $245-million deal with the Angels in December.

Superman & Lois Picked Up To Series By The CW
Television, is based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The series, from Berlanti Productions in collaboration with Warner Bros.

The Twins' offense as a whole was not a problem past year - it set a franchise record with 307 homers, with some help from the Happy Fun Ball, and finished fourth in the AL in OBP at.338. He was dealt to the Cleveland Indians on August 31 and played 16 games, enough to persuade the Braves that he was fully recovered from his health issues. The White Sox and Twins battling it out in the AL Central should be a fun watch all season.

Donaldson is one of the best hitters in baseball when healthy while having the swagger and on-field presence to back it. Fans will get a chance to see the former Blue Jays favourite a little more now that he will be remaining in the American League for an extended period. Cruz went deep 41 times last season, his fourth such time meeting that milestone.

Donaldson finished 11th in the National League MVP voting and he earned the NL Comeback Player of the Year awards presented by The Sporting News, MLB Players Association and Major League Baseball. Wolfson also hears that Donaldson really connected with Twins manager Rocco Baldelli.

The acquisition of Donaldson will allow the Twins to move third baseman Miguel Sanó across the diamond to the opposite corner.
