Latest Update Josh Donaldson hits 27th home run   Sun Sep, 14, 05:15 AM

Donaldson is now sitting on a .255 average with 27 home runs and 95 RBI through 556 at-bats, making him one of the best third baseman to own in fantasy. Barring a major cold stretch to end the regular season, Donaldson should remain a starter in all formats moving forward. 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.

    Josh Donaldson went 5-for-6 with a double, four RBI and two runs scored in the A's blow-out victory over the White Sox on Tuesday. 
  • It was a career night for Donaldson, who after the game told A's beat writer Susan Slusser, "Baseball is a stupid game. Last night I didnt even come close to touching anything, tonight most hits in my career." He's made a few changes with his hand positioning today, although it's unlikely such a small adjustment will suddenly make Donaldson a batting champ. Look him and the rest of the A's slumping lineup to get back on track over the next few weeks. Analyst: Spencer Silva

    Donaldson smacks 26th home run Thursday
  • Donaldson has picked up the pace of late, going 7-for-20 (.350 BA) with four extra-base hits (1 HR), four RBI and three runs scored over his last six games. His recent surge has raised his August batting average up to .294 after two down months, so hopefully for his fantasy owners his hot streak will carry over into the final month of the regular season.

    Donaldson doubles twice, drives in three during A's win
  • Donaldson had been struggling over his previous six games, posting a .077 with just one hit, but got himself back on track Monday in a much-needed win for the Athletics. After posting 20 home runs and 65 RBI in the first half of the season, Dondalson's production has fallen off slightly following the All-Star break connecting on just five homers and 19 RBI, but is still one of the premier power hitters and a must-start option down the stretch.
