Ed Zurga/Getty ImagesThe Toronto Blue Jays reportedly reached an agreement Friday to trade third baseman Josh Donaldson to the Cleveland Indians Eric Thames Jersey , according to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan.Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported Toronto will send $2.7 million to Cleveland.Donaldson enjoyed a late surge during the 2017 season after a sluggish start. The three-time All-Star posted a .270/.385/.559 triple-slash line with 33 home runs in 113 games. He also missed six weeks of action with a strained right calf.He's tallied five homers in 36 games this season, once again forced to the disabled list for an extended stretch鈥攖his time because of right shoulder inflammation.The 32-year-old possesses a strong track record, though.He earned the 2015 American League MVP Award after finishing the campaign with a .939 OPS to go along with 41 homers, 123 RBI and 122 runs scored. He's also hit at least 24 long balls in five straight seasons.With Donaldson set to hit free agency after the 2018 season, he said in January that he hoped to remain in Toronto."As we talked about at the end of the season last year, I've definitely voiced my opinion that I would like to stay here," Donaldson told reporters. "That hasn't changed."His continued injury issues paired with the Jays' inability to keep pace in the AL East led the front office to trade him, though.Now Donaldson will shift his focus to getting back on track with the Indians. The fact he's two seasons removed from a campaign in which he posted a career-best .404 on-base percentage and smacked 37 homers bodes well for a return to form.While his long-term future remains uncertain because he's headed for the open market, look for him to provide some reinforcements to an Indians team that's well on its way to a third straight AL Central title. BALTIMORE (AP) — Sitting side by side in the auxiliary clubhouse at Camden Yards, Orioles general manager Mike Elias and new manager Brandon Hyde spoke excitedly Monday about working together to mold the struggling franchise into a winner again.Hired last month to oversee a massive rebuilding project Glenn Robinson Jersey , Elias immediately set out to find a manager that could develop young, inexperienced players into solid major leaguers.He settled on Hyde, the 45-year-old bench coach of the Chicago Cubs, who was named the 20th manager in Orioles history on Friday.“He’s somebody that is viewed as an up and coming star in our business,” Elias said. “So I’m very happy that we landed him here.”Elias came to Baltimore from Houston, where he helped turn the Astros from a perennial loser into a World Series champion. Hyde, similarly, was an integral part of the process that bolstered the Cubs from a rebuilding club into a world champion. This will be his first job as major league manager.“We’ve come from two organizations that had some down years but all of a sudden got good real quick,” Hyde noted. “That’s going to be the process here, and we’re looking forward to getting that going.”Elias said: “What stood out throughout the entire process for me http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-manny-pina-jersey , for us, were Brandon’s unique qualifications and experiences for this job. Being such a huge part of building the Cubs organization into a world champion and a playoff-caliber team was very attractive to me throughout this entire process.”During a nine-year run with the Miami Marlins, Hyde served as a bench coach from June 2010 through the end of the 2011 season. In Chicago, he was bench coach in 2014, first base coach from 2015-17 and bench coach this year under the skilled and respected Joe Maddon.“I’m a big Joe Maddon fan. I love Joe Maddon,” Hyde said. “What I’ve learned the most from him is consistency, how he is on a daily basis. He’s so positive. Always upbeat.”Patience is going to be the key in Baltimore, where Elias and Hyde will be toiling in unison to turn around a team that finished 47-115 in 2018 — the most losses in franchise history.“I think the approach and the personal characteristics that he’s going to bring to this job are ideal,” Elias said. “He is someone with a reputation and experience for connecting with players, communicating with players Cecil Cooper Jersey , empathizing with players, which is very important in today’s game. But he also has the same view that I have — that this is a partnership between the front office and the coaching staff. We are going to be working toward the same goals.”Although he’s been entrenched in the National League for the past decade, Hyde knows all about the Orioles’ rich history. From the late 1960s through the team’s last World Series title in 1983, Baltimore was recognized as one of the best teams in the majors.One of the standouts of that era, Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson, sat in the front row during the news conference.Asked what made Baltimore attractive to him, Hyde replied, “The rich tradition here. Brooks Robinson is sitting here. I’m in my new office, and there’s pictures of Earl Weaver and Cal Ripken Sr. I grew up a baseball rat. To be around history and be involved in a city like Baltimore, it’s a dream come true http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-hernan-perez-jersey , to be in the American League East and going out and competing every night.”Before he can assess the talent in the organization, Hyde must first assemble his coaching staff.Then, it will be time to get down to business with Elias and former Astros analytics chief Sig Mejdal to rebuild the Orioles.“That’s what attracted me here,” Hyde said. “Knowing what they did in Houston, their ability to acquire talent, their ability to draft. Then, hearing what they wanted from a major league manager, I thought it was a really, really good fit.”
