Donaldson went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.
He took Wei-Yin Chen deep in the third inning for his first home run of the spring. Donaldson has been brought along slowly in camp on the heels of a rough season that was ruined by injuries, but if the 33-year-old stays reasonably healthy, he could still make an impact -- he hit .270 with 33 home runs in 113 games as recently as 2017.

- Donaldson played three innings in his debut Friday, popping up in his first at-bat before taking a walk in the third inning and then leaving for a pinch runner, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. He was pretty eager in his first at-bat, swinging at the first two pitches he saw. "Today, I wanted to be aggressive," Donaldson said. "I hadn't seen live pitching in about a week. So, I wanted to see where my timing was. It wasn't quite where I wanted it to be. But I was able to see some pitches and lay off some pretty tough pitches."
- Donaldson is starting at third base and batting second for Friday's spring game against the Phillies.
- Donaldson went 3-for-3 with a home run and a double during a simulated game Wednesday, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports. All Josh Donaldson (R) News
