Donaldson announces retirement

Infielder Josh Donaldson (38), who won the 2015 Major League Baseball (MLB) American League Most Valuable Player Award (MVP), announced his retirement from active duty.

The Associated Press reported on the 5th (Korean time) that Donaldson announced his intention to retire through a podcast broadcast.

“I’m sad that I can no longer do what I love, but I’m happy to begin the second chapter of my life with my family,” Donaldson said.

Donaldson, who debuted in the big league with the Oakland Athletics in 2010, posted a batting average of 0.261, 279 home runs, and 816 RBI in 1,384 games through the 2023 season.

In 2015, when he was playing for the Toronto Blue Jays, he had his best time with a batting average of 0.297, 41 home runs, 123 RBI, and 122 runs scored. 스포츠 토토사이트

Donaldson, who was in his prime in Toronto, moved to the Milwaukee Brewers during the 2018 season and continued his performance with the Atlanta Braves in 2019 with a batting average of 0.259, 37 home runs, and 94 RBI.

And ahead of the 2020 season, he signed a large free agent contract with the Minnesota Twins for a four-year contract period and a total of $92 million.

In Minnesota, it fell short of expectations.

Donaldson, who continued to struggle, was traded to the New York Yankees ahead of the 2022 season and released from the Yankees in the middle of last year.

Donaldson attempted a revival after signing a minor league contract with Milwaukee, but was unable to stop the passage of time and posted poor performance in 17 big league games, with a batting average of 0.169, 3 home runs, and 11 RBIs. 슬롯게이밍
