Donaldson vows to be ‘best I can be’ for Braves

While Johan Camargo spent the past two years establishing himself as a legit Major Leaguer with upside, Josh Donaldson has spent most of the past six years producing at American League Most Valuable Player Award-winning levels. By signing Donaldson to a one-year, $23 million deal, the Braves have at least temporarily halted Camargo’s status as an everyday member of their lineup. But more importantly, they have added much-needed power to their batting order, enhanced the potential value of their previously-thin bench and created some clarity regarding other offseason needs.
