The deal is pending physical examination, Athletic reported.

Donaldson, the most important player of the American League in 2015, joined Cleveland just before the August 31 deadline. Due to the variety of injuries, he confined himself to only 16 games with the Indians and only one was a hit in the postseason.

Donaldson, 32, hit .246 with eight homers and 23 RBIs in 52 games for Cleveland and Toronto last season. He missed more than three months in the middle of the season with an ongoing calf wound, which also disturbed him during the spring workout.

But when he was healthy, Donaldson was one of the most dangerous hitters in the league.

He hit 2,70 with 33 homers and 78 RBIs despite playing only 113 games during the 2017 season cut by short injuries. It was the center of Toronto's strongest offense that made the playoffs in 2015 and 2016, and led the league with 41 home runs and 123 RBIs while winning the MVP in 2015.

Three times each star followed with 37 home runs 99 RBIs in 2016.

Donaldson spent his first four seasons with Oakland athletics and he stacked .275 with 182 homers and 551 driven careers for life.
