Josh Donaldson

On June 13, when Josh Donaldson was sent down, his line was an astonishing .153/.160/.235. In exactly 100 plate appearances, he had 1 walk, and that was in that final June 13 game. He had 1 home run, 7 RBI, and a total of 6 extra-base hits.

He has played 19 games since getting called back up in the middle of August. His line now stands at .231/.268/.408, which, of course, is nothing to get incredibly excited about.

But that means that since getting called up, in 79 plate appearances (through Monday’s games), he’s at .338/.405/.648. What has happened to Josh Donaldson, and, more important, why haven’t I activated him out of the farm system of my Scoresheet team??
