Watching Josh Donaldson and Vlad Guerrero Jr exchange jerseys after getting a huge round of applause from Toronto fans, it had some fans thinking about getting Josh back in a Jays uniform..

Unless we expect Santiago Espinal to be starting at 3rd for the Jays next season, we need somebody that can play solid defense and provide some badly needed production at that position.
Could the Blue Jays trade for Josh Donaldson next season?
To be clear, Josh Donaldson is signed through 2024 with the Minnesota Twins at $21 million, $21 million, and $16 million (club option).
What about a Randall Grichuk for Josh Donaldson trade scenario?
After the Twins moved Jose Berrios at the trade deadline, it would make sense that Minnesota will want to shed additional payroll as they rebuild, why not make another trade with Toronto?
The Blue Jays are in a win-now mode, signing big names like Ryu and Springer, while maintaining some payroll flexibility before having to worry about Vlad, Bo and Teoscar.
What 3B free agents are available to the Blue Jays in 2022?
It’s unlikely players like Nolan Arenado, Kyle Seager, or Kris Bryant would ever come to Toronto next season, trade scenarios are much more realistic at this point.
Green salaries are Player Options, red are Club Options.
Let’s remember why Josh is still a fan favourite!
