Blue Jays Star third baseman Josh Donaldson is expected to be traded on Friday after being placed on revocable trade waivers Wednesday following a rehab game. There are already teams lined up for his services.

Angels slugger Albert Pujols has underwent arthroscopic knee surgery, which will effectively end his 2018 season.

• The Braves has a busy day on Wednesday, as they claimed Rene Rivera off waivers from the Angels, then moments later acquired Lucas Duda from the Royals for cash considerations.

• The Mets acquiring Jose Bautista and the Blue Jays’ Josh Donaldson going on a rehab assignment highlighted the transactions list for Tuesday, Aug. 28.

• After he led the Cardinals to a 26-12 record as interim manager, 50-year-old Mike Shildt was given a contract that runs through 2020 and officially named the team’s manager on Tuesday.
