In October, the 32-year-old right-hander from Venezuela won the Roberto Clemente Award presented for the character he’s shown on and off the field.
Donaldson won the National League honor. He played only 52 games for Toronto and Cleveland in 2018 because of injuries, but bounced back for a big year with the Braves.
The 2015 AL MVP hit 37 home runs and had 94 RBIs for the NL East champions. Donaldson became the second straight Braves player to win the NL comeback award after pitcher Jonny Venters last year.
The awards were chosen by the 30 team beat writers for MLB.com.
