The Braves have reportedly agreed to terms with free agent 3B Josh Donadlson on a one-year deal worth $23 million, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, who says the deal is pending a physical.
Donaldson, who turns 33 years old in December, hit .246/.352/.449 with eight home runs and 23 RBI for the Blue Jays and Indians in 2018 while being limited to just 52 games due to injury.
MetsBlog's Matthew Cerrone wrote earlier this month that Donaldson would have been a fit for the Mets, with MLB sources telling Cerrone that the deal Donaldson eventually signed could be a "prove it" deal where he attemps to reestablish his value before hitting the market again in 2019.
While the average annual value for Donaldson is high, the deal is incredibly low risk due to it being just one year. And if right, Donaldson will give the Braves another impact hitter.
The Mets currently have Todd Frazier -- under contract for one more season -- at third base, though he could have potentially shifted to first base (or been traded) in the event the team signed Donaldson.
