Blue Jays slugger Donaldson: I'm not an All-Star
Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson has made the American League (AL) MLB All-Star roster each of the last three seasons, but does not believe he deserves a spot on the team this year.
Donaldson, who missed over a month of action this season with a calf injury, is batting .265 with eight home runs and 20 RBIs this season heading into Thursday game against the Baltimore Orioles.
"I'm not an All-Star, look at my numbers," Donaldson - the AL MVP in 2015 - told Blue Jays Radio Play-By-Play Broadcaster Mike Wilner.
MLB All-Star voting ends Thursday just before midnight ET (local time).
Donaldson - a two-time Silver Slugger Award winner - is currently locked in a tight battle between Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano and the Cleveland Indians' Jose Ramirez.
Donaldson will be a strong candidate to be picked by manager Terry Francona even if he is not automatically voted onto the roster. But for now, he does not believe he is deserving of a spot.
