Blue Jays Avoid Arbitration with Ezequiel Carrera Raise Floor in Outfield by Kyle Matte

The Blue Jays and star third baseman Josh Donaldson have agreed to an arbitration-record contract of $23 million for the 2018 season, Shi Davidi reports.

Donaldson's 2018 deal is a record amount for one season for an arbitration-eligible player, surpassing the $21.65 million the Washington Nationals gave Bryce Harper in May to avoid arbitration with the All-Star outfielder. He also tallied 33 homers despite missing significant time with a calf injury.

Donaldson earned $17 million last year in the final season of a $28.65 million, two-year deal. The team and player bypassed having an arbitrator determine Donaldson's 2018 salary by resolving his contract status for the coming season.

Unfortunately the front office was unable to work things out with every player eligible for arbitration.

After recording 95 saves in his first three Major League Baseball seasons, Osuna reportedly filed for $5.8 million in his first year of arbitration, while the Jays sent an offer of $5.3 million. He, too, is coming off a down year, but should see a huge bump in salary. A similar situation played out in 2017, with Stroman filing for 3.4 million against the Blue Jays' offer of 3.1 million, which ultimately worked in the former Duke University's favour.

Be extra cautious: US new travel advisory to flyers visiting India
If one goes through the travel advisory issued by the United States for its citizens, India has nothing much to cheer. Georgia was listed as level 1 , the category described as "the lowest advisory level for safety and security risk".


Osuna was 3-4 with a 3.38 ERA with a career-best 39 saves in 66 appearances and 64 innings.

It cost the Blue Jays $35,197,500 to resolve their seven other arbitration cases Friday, and once you account for a minimum total of $11.8 million to get Stroman and Osuna signed, it should still leave Atkins with around $20 million in resources to continue - or is it start? - adding to the 2018 roster.

Bryant's deal surpasses the $10 million deal Ryan Howard made with the Philadelphia Phillies before the 2008 season.

The three-time all-star and 2015 American League MVP has a.285 batting average with 111 home runs and 300 runs batted in over three seasons in Toronto. He signed for $1.8 million. By striking the agreement, the two sides will avoid any salary arbitration proceedings.
