Blue Jays ink record deal for Donaldson

The previous record was set in May when Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper agreed to a one-year deal worth $21.625 million for the 2018 season. The 2016 AL ERA leader was projected to earn $1.9 million in 2018 after a disappointing 2017 season and the lingering blister issues. That gave the Blue Jays some cost certainty for two of Donaldson's arb years, but it also allowed Donaldson to cash in on that final arbitration year, which he's reportedly done in a big way.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Blue Jays settled the case with Aaron Sanchez for $2.7 million and avoided arbitration. Pillar was arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason.

Orioles LHP Zach Britton: 1 year, $12 million.

Reds CF Billy Hamilton: 1 year, $4.6 million.

- Relievers Jake Diekman and Keone Kela and infielder Jurickson Profar agreed one-year contracts with the Texas Rangers.

Still, he managed to hit 33 home runs and drive in 78 runs in under 500 plate appearances.
