Josh Donaldson says Blue Jays have yet to make extension offer

Josh Donaldson has yet to receive a contract-extension offer from the Toronto Blue Jays, the third baseman said Thursday afternoon.

Donaldson, who will become a free agent following the 2018 campaign, shared the news in an exchange with journalist Jon Heyman on Twitter.

Heyman, of FanRag Sports, included a tidbit in his MLB Notes column on Friday that stated Donaldson “is believed to be seeking a monster payday, according to friends, and while he may not hit his goal (some think he may be shooting too high), he benefits from Manny Machado’s move to shortstop since he’d become the top third base option if Machado stays at shortstop as a free agent.”

The former American League MVP was not pleased with Heyman’s report and relayed his thoughts in the following tweets.
