The Milwaukee Brewers are reportedly exploring the idea of adding former New York Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson. Like many others Josh Donaldson was waived by his former team and now if added prior to September 1 he would be post-season eligible. According to Ken Rosenthal Milwaukee is one team interested in him.
Milwaukee Brewers linked to former New York Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson.
Josh Donaldson, a former MVP in 2015 and MVP vote receiver from 2013-2017 & 2019, has had a rough go of things over the past two seasons as a member of the New York Yankees. Injuries have limited his ability to play in which in 2023 he has played in just 33 contests. Prior to arriving in New York he had a strong history of being a great offensive performer that includes four 30+ home run seasons.
The Brewers may be expressing interest in Josh Donaldson for two reasons. One being that third baseman Andruw Monasterio has shown signs of offensive regression. Secondly he does excel at hitting left-handed hitters and has a career .925 OPS in those match ups with a slugging percentage of .551.
If Milwaukee was able to capture one to two months of the old Josh Donaldson it would be a big boost for them offensively. We will have to wait and see if this rumor comes to fruition or not.
