Oakland Athletics' MVP Josh Donaldson to get day off finally


Potential AL MVP snub Josh Donaldson is getting a day off tonight as his AL West-leading Oakland A’s square off against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Donaldson, whose WAR of 7.7 ranks third in the AL, had reached base safely for 28 straight games until his streak was ended last night. His last day off was September 8 due to discomfort in his right quad, and previous to that he had played in 140 of 142 games for the A’s.
