A's trade All-Star Josh Donaldson to Toronto

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) All-Star third baseman Josh Donaldson is the latest Oakland star traded away in a rebuilding effort.

Billy Beane looked at the large deficit by which his Athletics lost the AL West to the Angels, then evaluated how Oakland barely held off Seattle on the season's final day for the second wild card.

The general manager realized he needed to rebuild his roster once more, but at least initially he didn't envision the move he made Friday night: Letting Donaldson go to the Toronto Blue Jays for third baseman Brett Lawrie, left-hander Sean Nolin, right-hander Kendall Graveman and minor league shortstop Franklin Barreto.
