Reeling after being rebuffed by Giancarlo Stanton, the St. Louis Cardinals have reportedly targeted third baseman Josh Donaldson as they look to add a power bat to their lineup. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported the news. Donaldson, 32, is heading into his final year of arbitration this winter. He hit .270/.385/.559 with 33 home runs and 78 runs batted in last season. Rosenthal's report indicates the Jays are currently confident they can keep Donaldson when he hits free agency next offseason. The Jays are considering Jay Bruce and Carlos Gonzalez as potential options to add this winter, per Rosenthal. Donaldson has maintained he wants to stay in Toronto long term.
