Fox Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal announced the trade via Twitter on Friday.

Donaldson was the American League MVP in 2015. Between 2015 and 2017 he averaged 37 home runs per year.

Donaldson hasn’t played in a big-league game since late May, but recently started a rehab assignment with the Blue Jays, according to The Athletic writer Zack Meisel.  Donaldson is reportedly owed close to $4 million for the rest of the season.
