A calf injury limited Donaldson to just 52 games last season. He also wasn't his dominant self when healthy, batting .245/.352/.449 with his lowest wOBA (.345) since 2012. There's still 30-35 homers lurking if the former MVP can stay healthy, but that's an increasingly bigger if magnified by a rapid batting-average decline (.297, .284, .270, .246). It's not worth the hassle if going significantly earlier than the likes of Justin Turner, Travis Shaw, and Matt Chapman.

Josh Donaldson penciled in batting second in Braves lineup

The Braves have penciled in Donaldson to bat second in the order for the upcoming season.

Fantasy Impact

The team is hoping that Ender Inciarte or Ozzie Albies will step up this spring and establish themselves as a bonafide leadoff batter so that Ronald Acuna can move to the #4 spot. So, it would look like this: Albies/Inciarte, Donaldson, Freddie Freeman, and Acuna in the first four spots of the 2019 batting order.
