The Atlanta Braves signed Josh Donaldson, free-agent baseman, to a one-year contract worth $23 million, as stated by Bleacher Report. In a tweet, Eno Sarris of The Athletic posted a diagram of Josh Donaldson’s rolling Exit Velocity as proof of his competence. He wrote, “Donaldson showed most of his old pop once he got healthy late.” It seems the Braves are optimistic; at his best, Donaldson can be a game changer.

During the 2018 season, Donaldson faced many health problems, battling shoulder and calf issues that limited him to 52 games, according to Bleacher Report. Donaldson joined the Cleveland Indians before Aug. 31 even though he wasn’t healthy enough to play immediately after the move from the Toronto Blue Jays. He returned to the field in September and produced a .280 batting average and three home runs in 16 appearances, Bleacher Report confirms, and, overall, produced a .246 batting average and an .801 OPS to go with eight home runs.

Per Bleacher Report, the 2015 American MVP averaged 37 home runs and 100 RBI per year from 2015 to 2017, hitting .285 in that stretch, and MVP voting placed him in the top 10 in four straight seasons. If Donaldson can make a full recovery from his injuries, he might just be the Atlanta Braves’ finest investment. Will Donaldson relive his glory days, or will he become just another benchwarmer?
