News: Donaldson lost his arbitration case with the Blue Jays and will receive a one-year, $4.3 million deal, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.
Impact: This saves Toronto more than a million dollars, but puts them off to a bad start with their new star third baseman. Donaldson figures to see an uptick from his .255 batting average thanks to the good kind of BABIP regression, and could definitely break 30 home runs given the higher home run rate at the Blue Jays' Rogers Centre compared to O.co Coliseum.

News: All-Star third baseman Josh Donaldson has lost to the Toronto Blue Jays in salary arbitration. He was awarded $4.3 million rather than his $5.75 million request.
Impact: The 29-year-old Donaldson hit .255 with 29 home runs and 98 RBIs in 158 games last season for Oakland and was traded to Toronto in December for third baseman Brett Lawrie, left-hander Sean Nolin, right-hander Kendall Graveman and minor league shortstop Franklin Barreto.
