Latest Update Donaldson doubles and drives in a run in loss   Wed Jul, 23, 07:06 AM

Donaldson is now riding a four-game hitting streak, having totaled three extra-base hits (1 HR) and six RBI in that stretch. As the result of an extended slump, Donaldson is now hitting a mere .241, but his 21 home runs and 71 RBI are certainly enough to make up for his lack of consistency at the plate. Whether or not his recent hit streak turns things around, he is still a top option at the hot corner the rest of the way as he continues to power his way up the rankings. Analyst: Matthew Beck

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Is a pretty solid offensive player, complete with excellent plate patience and some home-run power. Can even run a little. Also manages well defensively at more than one position (including third base and catcher).
Flaws:  : Lacks consistency in all facets of the game. Would benefit by finding his niche defensively. As a catcher, he still needs a lot of work, especially when it comes to calling a game and handling a pitching staff.

    Donaldson drives in two runs and scores twice in win
  • Donaldson has now hit safely in each of his first three games since returning from the All-Star break, with Sunday's performance being his best in that short period of time. However, since since June 1, Donaldson has watched his batting average drop from .284 to .241 as he continues to battle through an extended slump. Hopefully his recent production is a sign he has finally ended the cold streak, but even if that is not the case his power is still elite (21 HR w/ 70 RBI) and deserves a starting spot in all fantasy formats.

    Josh Donaldson saved his best for last Friday night
  • Things were looking real bleak for Donaldson again as he was about to post yet another "0-for-" to go along with his .174 July batting average which followed a .181 June. But he managed to save himself a little bit of embarrassment with his walk-off shot. But while the home run was nice, it can't hide the fact that the numbers are plummeting right now. You may still continue to see power out of Donaldson, but everything else seems to be slipping. Beware a second half drop-off.Analyst: Howard Bender

    Donaldson belts oppo-field home run, his 20th of the year
  • The home run was the former catcher, turned third basemans, 20th of the season, but just his third since June 7th where he is hitting just .159 (18-for-114) over that 29 game span. The two RBI Thursday gave Donaldson a team-best 65 on the year. He can attribute a large part of his high RBI total to the fact that 12 of his 20 home runs have come with at least one runner on base.Analyst: Michael Pichan
