Toronto Blue Jays star third baseman Josh Donaldson will likely miss the next two to four weeks with a calf strain, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
The Jays placed Donaldson on the 10-day disabled list on April 14, a day after he aggravated his right calf injury while running out a double against the Baltimore Orioles.
The 2015 American League MVP is hitting .310 with two home runs and four RBIs over nine games this season, his third in Toronto. Donaldson, 31, hit .284 with 37 homers and 99 RBIs over 155 contests in 2016.
"It's very aggravating, very frustrating," Donaldson told the Canadian Press last week. "At the same time, you've got to try to stay as positive as possible and look to get back in the right time and make sure that everything is going to be good."
Toronto is already without ace Aaron Sanchez who is also on the 10-day DL due to a blister on his throwing hand. The status of starter J.A. Happ is up in the air after he left Sunday's game with elbow soreness.
The Blue Jays are 2-10 on the season and sit in last place in the league.
