Apr. 13 6:01 PM PT7:01 PM MT8:01 PM CT9:01 PM ET21:01 ET1:01 GMT9:01 6:01 PM MST8:01 PM EST8:31 PM VEN5:01 UAE (+1)8:01 PM CT-Donaldson has been placed on the 10-day disabled list after aggravating a lingering right calf injury in Thursday's loss to Baltimore.
Analysis: Considering that Donaldson has dealt with calf issues since spring training, it seems highly questionable that he'll be back when first eligible. The 2015 AL MVP's absence is a huge blow for a reeling Toronto team that's hitting an MLB-low .190 with 24 runs scored in losing eight of its first nine games.

Analysis: The slugger did not start Tuesday's series opener but struck out as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning. Donaldson was held out after exiting Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay with a right calf injury he sustained while running out an at-bat in the sixth inning.

He exited Sunday's game at Tampa Bay in the sixth inning due to tightness in his right calf.
Analysis: The 2015 AL MVP did miss a good part of spring training with an injury to the same area, so he may not be fully in the clear just yet.

Analysis: The standout third baseman also recorded his first RBI of the young campaign. Donaldson is batting .375 through the first four games despite striking out seven times in 16 at-bats.

Analysis: The 2015 MVP looked more than recovered from a spring calf injury in his 2017 debut.
Mar. 20 2:22 PM PT3:22 PM MT4:22 PM CT5:22 PM ET17:22 ET21:22 GMT5:22 2:22 PM MST4:22 PM EST4:52 PM VEN1:22 UAE (+1)3:22 PM CT-Donaldson made his spring training debut Monday, going 0 for 2 with a walk in his first game since injuring his right calf more than a month ago.
Analysis: The 2015 AL MVP hurt himself Feb. 17 while running sprints. He was the designated hitter in an 8-2 loss to Minnesota, and is scheduled to play at his normal third base spot Wednesday. ''A really big day for him and the ballclub,'' Toronto manager John Gibbons said. ''We've been waiting for this day. It's a big step forward.''
Mar. 12 11:25 AM PT12:25 PM MT1:25 PM CT2:25 PM ET14:25 ET18:25 GMT2:25 11:25 AM MST1:25 PM EST1:55 PM VEN22:25 UAE12:25 PM CT-Donaldson said he expects to begin playing in spring training games later this week. Donaldson has been sidelined with a right calf injury suffered the day before the Blue Jays opened camp three weeks ago.
Analysis: The 2015 American League MVP went through his full pregame routing prior to Saturday's game. His running needs to improve before he can be cleared to play.
