  • Josh Donaldson Feels Different This Spring

    New York Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson began his offseason work earlier than usual and cited a new "intensity" and "focus" in ensuring he was ready for spring training this year. He went 1-for-2 with a single, walk and strikeout in his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday and is ready to bounce back after posting a career-worst .682 OPS for the Yankees in 2022. The 37-year-old former American League MVP in 2015 will need to prove to fantasy managers that he's not in full decline towards the end of his career. "You can definitely see that he put a lot of work in the offseason," said bench coach Carlos Mendoza. "Physically he looks really good. I like where he's at right now physically, mentally." Donaldson will be the team's primary third baseman, but he could find the bench more often if he continues to struggle offensively in 2023.

  • Josh Donaldson Projected To Start At 3B For Yankees

    New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that third baseman Josh Donaldson projects to be the team's starter at third base in 2023 despite hitting .222 with 15 home runs in 2022 in his first year in the Bronx. Donaldson has one year and at least $27 million left on his deal, but the Yankees have explored trading him. Hitting coach Dillon Lawson said that the 37-year-old has been working hard to get back into top form. He saw his walk and strikeout rates go in the wrong direction last year, and his power and on-base percentage also took a dive. Health is also a question as he nears the end of his career. The three-time All-Star and former American League MVP could bounce back in 2023, but there's reason to believe that last year was the beginning of more decline.
