Donaldson (calf) is expected to sit out Wednesday's matinee against Cincinnati for precautionary reasons, Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

When John Gibbons was asked if Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki -- both recently activated from long DL stints -- would be deployed for the quick turnaround from Tuesday night's action, the skipper provided a humorous response. "Wait until (Wednesday)," Gibbons said. "You trying to kill attendance?" However, the team has made clear that it will use extreme caution in easing the pair back into action, so owners should seek alternate options before Wednesday's slate kicks off.
