McCann returns to Braves on one-year deal

In 60 plate appearances, Donaldson had a 146 OPS+, hitting three homers and three doubles while drawing ten walks. He hit just eight home runs and 23 RBIs, with a.246 batting average and.352 on-base percentage - nowhere near the kind of production Blue Jays fans had become accustomed to.

"To be honest, this is a day I didn't know would happen when I left in 2013", McCann said Monday.

Marcia Fudge of OH has said she is considering entering the race. "Would-be challengers are keenly aware of the enormous power Ms. Two of them, Anthony Brindisi in NY and Ben McAdams in Utah, are in races that have not yet been called by The Associated Press.

In signing a short-term deal, Donaldson will intend to prove he can stay healthy.

Just like he did in February when he shelved any sort of negotiations with the Blue Jays after the two sides weren't in the "same ballpark", Donaldson is doubling down on his bat and his body answering all of the questions surrounding him with the goal of securing a longer-term deal next winter.

It's obviously tough to gauge at this point, but hard to ignore the idea of Durant and LeBron James teaming up in Los Angeles. Kerr also tried to rule out the narrative that Durant's upcoming 2019 free agency was behind the altercation.

General manager Alex Anthopoulos attended the news conference for McCann but did not comment on the signing of Donaldson. The Braves designated left-handers Adam McCreery and Ricardo Sanchez for assignment to make room for their new acquisitions on the 40-man roster. He got a $2 million, one-year contract to play near his home. He hit 18 homers as part of Houston's 2017 World Series championship squad. He missed about two months because of arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in July. The reports on him are very strong. Despite having a down season offensively, Flowers split time a year ago with Kurt Suzuki. Likewise, this move also does not block top prospect Austin Riley for 2020, presuming he is ready, and allows the Braves to turn Johan Camargo into a Marwin Gonzalez type of player.

Donaldson, meanwhile, gets a nice chunk of change and a chance to do it again, this time on a legitimate contender.
