After going 8-for-53 and bowing out, former AL MVP raises possibility of retirement after season

Former American League MVP Josh Donaldson (38-New York Yankees) has raised the possibility of calling it quits after this season.

After making his big league debut with the Oakland Athletics in 2010, he has played for the Toronto Blue Jays, Atlanta Braves, Minnesota Twins and, since last year, the New York Yankees.

In 1350 career big league games, Donaldson is batting .263 (4910-for-1293) with 272 home runs, 798 RBIs and 807 runs scored, but this season he has been underwhelming. In 17 games, he is just 8-for-53 with a 1-for-51 batting average, six home runs, eight RBIs and nine runs scored.

American media outlet ‘Yardbarker’ reported on the 20th (KST), “Donaldson has struggled since joining the Yankees. Last year, he batted a career-low 2-for-2 with a .682 OPS. In 132 games, he hit 15 home runs and 62 RBIs. He missed nearly two months with an injury earlier this season.”스포츠토토

When asked if he will continue to play next season, he said, “I don’t know. It depends on how I talk to my family. I get that question from a lot of people.”

“With Aaron Judge out, the pressure is on veteran hitters like Donaldson, Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton,” the outlet reported.
