The New York Yankees have parted ways with former MVP third baseman Josh Donaldson (38)바카라.
The Yankees officially announced on the 30th (Korean time) that they would release Donaldson.
Donaldson, who has a brilliant career as the 2015 American League MVP, three-time All-Star, and two-time Silver Slugger, showed a shabby appearance for the Yankees this season.
Due to hamstring and calf injuries, he only played 33 games, and in the games he played, he only recorded a batting average of 0.142, an on-base percentage of 0.225, and a slugging percentage of 0.434.
He hit 10 homers, showing that his slugging power was alive, but the rest fell short of expectations.
He is currently on the 60-day injured list and will not be able to return until September 16th.
Any team that wants to use him in the postseason must complete the acquisition before August is over. Recruitment is possible with minimum salary.
Donaldson played 1366 games in 13 seasons in the major leagues, recording a batting average of 0.262, an on-base percentage of 0.359, and a slugging percentage of 0.491.
This year was the final year of a four-year, $92 million contract with the Minnesota Twins. Team options remain for the 2024 season.
The Yankees traded Gary Sanchez and Gio Ursella to Minnesota in March 2022, along with Isaac Cainer-Faleppa and Ben Rotbet.
