Josh Donaldson To Disabled List, Coghlan Headed To Toronto

Josh Donaldson is likely is headed to the disabled list with a calf injury, tweets Jon Morosi of Fox Sports. Donaldson, 31, has played at least 155 games each season since being traded to Toronto. The news could not come at a worse time, as the Jays sit at the bottom of the standings with a 1-8 record. 

Expect Darwin Barney to receive a plenty of time at the hot corner in his absence. The Blue Jays do not have much depth at this position, and utility man Steve Pearce has just 70 innings at this position for his career.

Shi David tweets that Chris Coghlan is on his way to Toronto.

He played over 100 innings at third base last season. However, he did not grade out well defensively whatsoever, and he's at his best defensively in the outfield. Still, the Blue Jays could use his left-handed bat in the lineup (or, for that matter any bat that can actually make contact with a ball).

Coghlan will wear number 7.

Chris is hitting .217/.357/.304 in 28 PA at Buffalo. Career in the majors, he's hit .260/.335/.402 with 52 homers in 765 games. His left-handed bat could play well in left field, which would allow Barney to play at third base for defensive purposes.
