Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson told Comcast SportsNet California that his left knee feels more stable than it did a few days ago.
Insight: Donaldson did not run very much on Monday, but he is expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday against the Royals in the AL Wild Card game. His knee has been an issue for the second half of the season, but Donaldson has still been able to hit .280 over that time. His power, however, seems to have been effected as he has just nine homers since the break.
 
9/28/2014 9:34:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
Insight: It was unclear whether Donaldson would even start as the third baseman banged both his knees on Friday. Donaldson did not look to good running the bases Saturday, but his production at the plate was not effected. He hit a solo bomb in the first and added two singles. Donaldson is batting .257 with 29 home runs and 98 RBI in 157 games this season.
 
9/24/2014 11:47:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is a career 1-for-11 (.091) with four strikeouts against Angels starter Hector Santiago.
Insight: Donaldson's big home run total of the first half (20) has dissipated (8), but he's hitting for a higher average (.276) and a better OPS (.840) in the 61 games since the break. This is a poor matchup, however.
 
9/5/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is a career 6-for-13 (.462) with five extra-base hits against Astros starter Brett Oberholtzer.
Insight: It was a rough series for Donaldson against Seattle, going 1-for-17, but perhaps he can restart in this favorable matchup. He's batting .255 with a career-high 26 HR and 89 RBI.
 
8/31/2014 7:36:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson was 2-for-4 on Sunday against the Angels.
Insight: It was a rough series for Oakland, who the Angels swept in four games. The offense went 29 consecutive innings without a run. The A's are 19-22 since the All-Star break and five game back of the Angels going into September. Donaldson, however, has been the one bright spot on offense, hitting 12-for-24 in his last seven games.
 
8/29/2014 10:39:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is just 1-for-11 against Angels starter Jered Weaver.
Insight: Donaldson homered and doubled in the series opener with the Angels Thursday night. His batting average is down almost 50 points from last season, but he's providing power (26 HR) for the A's and fantasy owners.
 
8/25/2014 4:56:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson (knee) is back in the lineup for Monday after missing Sunday due to a sore knee.
Insight: He lobbied to get into the lineup Sunday, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, but had to wait another day. He's already set a career high in home runs and needs nine more RBI to set another career mark.
 
8/24/2014 7:47:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson (knee) is out of the lineup Sunday night against the Angels.
Insight: He lobbied to get into the lineup, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, but he'll have a precautionary MRI on his sore knee.
 
Cold8/24/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is just 1-for-11against Angels right-hander Jered Weaver.
Insight: Donaldson couldn't have picked a worse time to go cold, batting just .154 (2-for-13) over the past four games as the A's battle the Angels for the division lead. Sit him on Sunday.
 
8/20/2014 2:23:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is out of the lineup Wednesday, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: It's his first day out of the lineup since July 3. He's gone 2-for-18 (.111) with nine strikeouts in his last five games, so he could use the rest. The A's want him at full strength for this weekend's crucial series against the Angels.
 
Hot8/12/2014 10:59:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with two homers, four RBI and three runs Tuesday at Kansas City.
Insight: Donaldson went 16-for-111 (.144) with two home runs in 28 games from June 7 to July 9, but he's rebounded to go 32-for-101 (.317) with seven doubles, six homers and 21 RBI in 28 games since then.
 
8/2/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is just 1-for-18 against Royals starter Jason Vargas.
Insight: Donaldson batting average isn't very good, but he's still hitting for power and is just one home run shy of last season's total of 24 homers. However, with his protection, Yoenis Cespedes now playing in Boston, we will see if opposing pitchers keep throwing Donaldson strikes.
 
7/30/2014 4:53:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson accounted for Oakland's only run against Houston's Dallas Keuchel Wednesday with his 23rd home run of the season.
Insight: Donaldson has looked very good lately, hitting .305 with four home runs, 13 RBI and seven Ks in his last 15 games. The third baseman hit .144 with two home runs, 13 RBI and 24 Ks in 28 games from Jun 7 to July 9 and has been trying to get his batting average back up.
 
7/10/2014 7:05:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson slammed his 20th home run of the season Thursday afternoon.
Insight: Donaldson has struggled after a good start, but the home runs have never slowed. He'll easily top last year's total of 24, but he'll be hard-pressed to match last season's .301 batting average or .883 OPS.
 
Cold7/4/2014 1:42:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is dealing with a stiff back, but is in Friday's lineup versus Toronto.
Insight: Donaldson sat out Wednesday and Thursday due to a stiff back. He was batting .280 with 17 homers, 50 RBI, 51 runs and a .925 OPS going into June 7, but he's declined to .245 with a .784 OPS during his brutal 13-for-88 (.148) slump. Now we know the reason for the drop in production.
 
Cold7/4/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is dealing with a stiff back.
Insight: Donaldson sat out Wednesday and Thursday due to a stiff back. He was batting .280 with 17 homers, 50 RBI, 51 runs and a .925 OPS going into June 7, but he's declined to .245 with a .784 OPS during his brutal 13-for-88 (.148) slump. Now we know the reason for the drop in production.
 
Cold7/3/2014 6:45:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is dealing with a stiff back.
Insight: Donaldson also sat out Wednesday and apparently it wasn't just to get the struggling third baseman a day off. He was batting .280 with 17 homers, 50 RBI, 51 runs and a .925 OPS going into June 7, but he's declined to .245 with a .784 OPS during his brutal 13-for-88 (.148) slump.
 
Cold7/1/2014 9:48:00 PM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson has gone 13-for-88 (.148) in his last 22 games.
Insight: Donaldson was batting .280 with 17 homers, 50 RBI, 51 runs and a .925 OPS going into June 7, but he's declined to .245 with a .784 OPS during his brutal slump.
 
Cold6/15/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson is hitless in his last 29 at-bats.
Insight: Donaldson had a .309 average, 10 homers, 26 RBI, 26 runs and a 1.090 OPS in 25 games from May 9 to June 6, but he's fallen into a brutal slump. He hasn't even reached base since June 6 and has watched his average and OPS drop 30 and 95 points, respectively, over his last seven games. Frustration started to boil over Saturday night and Donaldson was ejected prior to the top of the eighth inning for arguing balls and strikes.
 
Cold6/11/2014 9:57:00 AM
Description: Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson has gone 0-for-19 with eight Ks in his last four games.
Insight: Donaldson was due for a cold streak after hitting .321 with 10 homers, 25 RBI, 22 runs and a 1.180 OPS from May 12 to June 6, but this is just brutal.
