The Toronto Blue Jays avoided an arbitration hearing by signing the Josh Donaldson, the American League's MVP, to a two-year contract worth $29-million (U.S.), according to Sportsnet.
The news comes just a week before the hearing date, that was submitted over a $450,000 difference between the Jays' contract offer of $11.35-million and Donaldson's request of $11.8-million.
The popular Blue Jay, known by his Twitter handle, Bringer of Rain, is one of several high-profile Jays looking to score new deals in the ensuing weeks. Team leader Jose Bautista expressed recently that he wants to be a Blue Jay for the rest of his career.
