Donaldson has since moved on from Toronto and had a bounce-back year in 2018, hitting .259 with 37 home runs and 94 RBI for the Atlanta Braves. Donaldson also has a knack for doing something all teams covet ... he gets on base. Donaldson's .379 OBP was good enough for 19th in the all of baseball last season.
The soon-to-be 34-year-old is also a plus defender at the hot corner and is one of three finalists for the Gold Glove Award in the National League.
A three-year deal for Donaldson makes sense for the Rangers as two of their top prospects, Josh Jung and Davis Wendzel, are third basemen. Texas could employ Donaldson at third for the next two seasons and simply move him to designated hitter should one of Wendzel or Jung be ready to play then.
