The 32-year-old has been dealing with a right calf injury since being placed on the 10-day disabled list for the first time in his career on April 14, 2017.
Maybe the most memorable of Donaldson's late-game heroics came in a late September game against the Tampa Bay Rays with the Blue Jays closing in on their first playoff birth since 1993. On Thursday, he homered in his first at-bat in the second game of his rehabilitation assignment with Class-A Dunedin.
When he has played, Donaldson has hit five home runs and his.757 OPS is his lowest since his 2012 rookie season.
He hit 37 homers and drove in 99 runs in 2016 and had 41 homers and 123 RBI the year before that, so Donaldson was a productive player not all that long ago.
Donaldson has been traded to the Cleveland Indians, in exchange for a player to be named later.

And, in true hockey/Canadian fashion, ball caps littered the Rogers Centre field after the Bringer Of Rain's "Hat Trick".
The AL Central-leading Indians sent a player to be named to the Blue Jays for Donaldson, a three-time All-Star who has been limited to 36 games this season because of injuries.
For his efforts, Donaldson was chosen the AL's most valuable player, just the second player in franchise history to get the award.
It was felt that the Blue Jays would try to deal Donaldson after last season, when his value was still relatively high.
Donaldson becomes the first MVP to wear an Indians uniform since Juan Gonzalez (a two-time victor for the Texas Rangers) spent a year with the club in 2001. "But he did a lot for us here, and I wish him the best". He will be a free agent after the season, and still has roughly $4 million left on an arbitration deal that gives him roughly $23 million total in 2018.
The danger in this scenario is that Donaldson would accept the offer which is not something the Blue Jays reportedly would like to happen.
