Thursday's game with Single-A Dunedin http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , and giving the team one more chance at trading him before Friday's deadline, per Sportsnet.UPDATE: Josh Donaldson is in the lineup tonight for single-A Dunedin. https://t.co/lB7AaYIjTb— Sportsnet (@Sportsnet) August 30, 2018Donaldson returned to the lineup on Tuesday, but he was supposed to miss Wednesday's game with a nagging calf/leg injury. However, that game was rained out, giving Donaldson the chance to play and showcase himself one last time to a team that may want to trade for the 2015 AL MVP.It's been a frustrating and very strange sequence of events for Donaldson and the Blue Jays over the past few months. He last played for the Jays on May 28, but missed three months of action with a calf injury. Toronto only has until Friday night to work out a deal for Donaldson, but he can't be traded if he's still injured.advertising Credit: Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY SportsThe Blue Jays probably won't earn much in a potential trade for Donaldson, given his injury-plagued season and the fact he's a free agent in the winter. But it'd be better than losing him for nothing, and they have a slight chance of trading the soon-to-be 33-year-old before time runs out.Before the 2018 season started, Donaldson told reporters that he and the Blue Jays weren't in the "same ball park Dellin Betances Jersey ," during contract talks. As such, it's more likely than not he's playing his final days with the team.In 36 games this season, Donaldson is batting .234 with five home runs, 16 RBI and an OPS of .757. Those aren't great stats, but a healthy Donaldson could be the final piece for a playoff team's championship puzzle. He's one of the game's top all-around hitters and plays Gold Glove-caliber defense at third base.advertisingThe Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees have been mentioned as possible suitors for Donaldson. At this point, the Blue Jays will probably take anything they can get for him, so we'll see how it plays out over the next 30 or so hours. CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs exercised their $20 million option on Cole Hamels on Friday, solidifying their rotation for next year, and traded fellow left-hander Drew Smyly to the Texas Rangers.Hamels, who turns 35 in December Matt Holliday Jersey , went 4-3 with a 2.36 ERA in 12 starts after he was acquired in a July 27 trade with Texas — a frequent trade partner for Chicago since Theo Epstein took over the Cubs’ front office in 2011. Had the Cubs declined the option and paid a $6 million buyout, the Rangers would have paid the Cubs an additional $6 million.The 29-year-old Smyly is heading to Texas after missing his only year in Chicago as part of his recovery from Tommy John surgery in June 2017. The Cubs also parted with a player to be named in exchange for a player to be named.Smyly signed a $10 million, two-year contract with Chicago last December. He was healthy at the end of last season, but the contending Cubs ran out of time in terms of bringing him back.Chicago also claimed infielder Jack Reinheimer off waivers from the New York Mets. The 26-year-old Reinheimer hit .167 in 21 games with New York this year.Hamels gives manager Joe Maddon a deep group of starting pitchers as the Cubs try for their fifth consecutive playoff appearance. Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Jose Quintana and Yu Darvish also are expected to return, with Mike Montgomery and Tyler Chatwood waiting in the wings.Hamels, a former first-round pick, made his major league debut with Philadelphia in 2006. He is 156-114 with a 3.40 ERA in 13 big league seasons.He was working on perhaps the worst season of his career when Chicago got him from Texas for right-hander Eddie Butler, minor league pitcher Rollie Lacy and a player to be named. He was 5-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 starts with the last-place Rangers at the time of the trade, but the Cubs felt a change of scenery and a pennant race might help him get back on track.They were right.Hamels had an instant impact with Chicago Austin Romine Jersey , going 4-0 with a sparkling 0.79 ERA in his first five starts with the team. He was unbeaten with the Cubs until he was hit hard in a loss at Arizona in his 10th start on Sept. 19.When the NL wild-card game went into extra innings, Hamels made just his second major league relief appearance and responded with two scoreless innings in Chicago’s 2-1 loss to Colorado. He is 7-6 with a 3.41 ERA in 17 career playoff appearances.The option completes the deal Hamels signed with Philadelphia in July 2012, bringing the total value to $158 million for seven years.Hamels struck out 13 while pitching a no-hitter at Wrigley Field in his final start with Philadelphia in 2015. He was traded to Texas six days later, and helped the Rangers to two AL West titles.Earlier this week, the Cubs exercised their $6.25 million option for Pedro Strop and fellow reliever Brandon Kintzler picked up his $5 million player option.Strop, one of the baseball’s most consistent relievers since he was acquired in a July 2013 trade with Baltimore, went 6-1 with 13 saves and a 2.26 ERA in 60 appearances last season.
