Donaldson went 3-for-4 with a RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 13-6 win over the Orioles.

Donaldson has been on a tear, collecting five multi-hit games in his last seven including three three-hit games over that span to boost his average up to .345. His slash line of .345/.403/.600 with an OPS of 1.003 shows why he's one of the top third basemen in the league and a must start in nearly all formats.

Donaldson went 3-for-4 as the DH on Saturday, and hit a walk-off solo home run on the first pitch he saw in the 10th inning.

That's three blasts in the last two games for Donaldson, who also pushed his batting average on the season up to .340 (16-for-47) with 10 RBI in 12 games. Fantasy owners who banked on Donaldson improving his performance thanks to the move from Oakland to Toronto are being amply rewarded so far.

Donaldson was 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs, his first two of the year, while adding three RBI in a losing cause against the Braves on Friday night.

After joining the Jays potent lineup in the off-season, many saw Donaldson taking a step up this year, and that may yet be in the offing. The big bats in the middle of Toronto's lineup have been relatively quite early on, but the team may be collectively heating up (they hit five long ones in this game).

Donaldson will bat second in the lineup Wednesday against the Rays.

Donaldson has struggled with his power in the early goings of the season, mustering just two extra base hits in eight games. The lack of production in that area could be behind the change from his traditional fifth spot in the order, as he'll fill in at number two for Dalton Pompey who has struggled mightily in that capacity.

Donaldson went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the Blue Jays' 3-2 loss to the Rays.

While with a power hitter like Donaldson, fantasy owners would love more than two extra-base hits (both doubles) and three RBI on the season, it's hard to get too worried over eight games. Owners hope Donaldson can continue his success on the heels of his third multi-hit game of the season and he remains a must start in all formats due to his power potential at the hot corner.

Donaldson had a very strong spring, hitting .327 while clubbing five home runs in 19 games.

Donaldson had been posting good power numbers in Oakland for the past two seasons, a notorious pitcher's park. His move to Toronto should cement him as one of the top hitting third basemen in the MLB while giving the Blue Jays' lineup even more power and up and down the order. Donaldson is a sure-fire pick as one of the best corner infield options and with other big bats such as Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and more surrounding him, Donaldson should be provided with ample opportunities to collect RBI and potentially cross the 100-RBI threshold for the first time in his career.

Donaldson lost his arbitration case with the Blue Jays and will receive a one-year, $4.3 million deal, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.This saves Toronto more than a million dollars, but puts them off to a bad start with their new star third baseman. Donaldson figures to see an uptick from his .255 batting average thanks to the good kind of BABIP regression, and could definitely break 30 home runs given the higher home run rate at the Blue Jays' Rogers Centre compared to O.co Coliseum.
