Indians reportedly intend to place Josh Donaldson on disabled list

Josh Donaldson

Josh Donaldson is reportedly more than a week away from joining the Cleveland Indians for game action.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Indians plan to put the newly-acquired third baseman on the 10-day disabled list and send him back on a rehab assignment, as he had been doing with the Toronto Blue Jays before they dealt him.

As Rosenthal notes, it ensures Donaldson won’t make Cleveland’s scheduled trip to Toronto this coming weekend. It also means the earliest Donaldson could be activated and called up would likely be sometime around the middle of next week.

Cleveland probably would’ve preferred to get Donaldson to the majors as quickly as possible so they can sort out their defensive alignment with him around and get that working before the playoffs start. They are looking like they won’t have a ton of time to do so now.
