That's the richest in team history for a free agent. Donaldson agreed last week to the deal that includes a club option for a fifth season.

The previous high-dollar mark for Minnesota on the open market was a $55 million contract for starting pitcher Ervin Santana that began in 2015.

Donaldson was the 2015 AL MVP award winner with Toronto. The 34-year-old hit 37 home runs for Atlanta in 2019. He joins a lineup that set the major league record with 307 homers last season.
