MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Josh Donaldson's 2024 option with the Minnesota Twins can escalate an additional $4 million based on awards he earns during the first four seasons of the deal.

Donaldson and the Twins finalized a $92 million, four-year contract on Wednesday. Donaldson has a limited no-trade provision allowing him to pick five teams he can't be dealt to without his consent.

If he is traded, he would receive a one-time assignment bonus of $2 million. Donaldson won the 2015 AL MVP award for Toronto.

Minnesota won 101 games last year and then was swept by the Yankees in the AL Division Series.
