Josh Donaldson’s revenge tour is officially off and running.

The Milwaukee Brewers announced on Monday that they have selected Donaldson’s contract from Triple-A Nashville, meaning that he has been promoted to their MLB roster. Brewers infielder Owen Miller was optioned to Nashville in a corresponding move.

The ex-AL MVP Donaldson got signed by the Brewers to a minor-league deal at the end of August. He ended up spending less than two weeks in Triple-A before now getting the call back up to the big leagues.

Donaldson immediately getting an opportunity to contribute to a division-leading playoff contender is a surprise, especially given how badly he wore out his welcome with the New York Yankees. Expectations should obviously be held in check for a 37-year-old hitting a stomach-turning .142 this season. But with how little Milwaukee has gotten out of their third-base spot lately, they are ready to take the plunge on Donaldson.
