Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson is nursing a calf injury this spring training.
17 while running sprints.
"As far as how my calf's feeling right now, it feels normal", Donaldson said. "That's what we want". In his final at-bat against Adalberto Mejia in the sixth, Donaldson reached when his pop fly to shallow centre was misplayed for a an error. "We've been waiting for this day".
"It's huge for the team that he's on the field", Gibbons said.
Donaldson hit.284 with 122 runs, 32 doubles, five triples, 37 home runs, 99 RBIs, 109 walks, .404 on-base average and.549 slugging percentage for Toronto last season. He has been an All-Star in three straight seasons. He could rejoin the Blue Jays for Friday's game with Boston.
Baseball players don't have the reputation of being the most athletic. Ceciliani was the Jays' star of camp a year ago, hitting.417 with four homers, but the team sent him down at the end of the spring anyway.
