Blue Jays, Donaldson avoid arbitration with record deal

Mostly notably was the agreement with Josh Donaldson for one year at 23 million, his final year of arbitration before becoming a free agent.

The salary is a record for an arbitration-eligible player, surpassing Bryce Harper's figure for this season.

Carrera, who hit.282 with eight home runs and 20 RBIs last season, signed for $1.9 million. The 2015 American League MVP is coming off a relatively underwhelming year by his own high standards, and was limited to only 113 games by multiple injuries.

The ANC's elective conference in Johannesburg last month ruled the inquiry should be expedited. Stocks were little changed with South African-listed Steinhoff shares weighing on the market.

Osuna, who earned just $552,400 a year ago, filed at $5.8 million, with the Jays countering at $5.3 million, resulting in a $500,000 gap. He will be eligible for free agency following the 2018 season.

Pillar batted.256 with 16 homers and 42 RBIs in 154 games. If the figure is indeed correct, it will set a new record for arbitration-eligible players. Stroman is seeking $6.9 million and Toronto countered at $6.5 million, and Osuna asked for $5.8 million while the Blue Jays offered $5.3 million. A similar situation played out in 2017, with Stroman filing for 3.4 million against the Blue Jays' offer of 3.1 million, which ultimately worked in the former Duke University's favour. That mark had been set by David Price, who agreed to a $19.75 million deal with the Detroit Tigers in January 2015.

Bryant's deal surpasses the $10 million deal Ryan Howard made with the Philadelphia Phillies before the 2008 season. Over the past three years with the Blue Jays, he is a.285/.387/.559 hitter with 111 home runs and 300 RBI. He signed for $1.8 million.

Wal-Mart to Close 10% of Its 660 Sam's Club Stores
Walmart's new pay hike, purportedly inspired by the recent cut in the US corporate tax rate, is a little less than real largesse. It is one of at least 63 reported closures across the USA and is expected to impact thousands of workers.

On the flip side, Marcus Stroman has filed for arbitration for the second time, and once again the two sides aren't that far apart.

Shortstop Addison Russell agreed to terms on a $3.2 million contract while infielder Tommy La Stella and pitchers Justin Wilson and Kyle Hendricks also came to terms.
