Donaldson, 30, was acquired by the Blue Jays in a blockbuster trade with the Oakland Athletics in November 2014. He was instrumental in helping Toronto end its 21-year postseason drought.
Donaldson became the second AL MVP in franchise history. He batted .297 with a career-high 41 home runs while leading the league in RBIs (123) and runs scored (122).
