Josh Donaldson and Nicholas Castellanos are two of the best free agents in the market who are yet to sign a deal. MLB 2020 season is about to start and the talented third baseman and outfielder will be getting a lot of offers as the MLB trade market starts to heat up.
There are a lot of MLB clubs ready to sign Donaldson and Castellanos with a big contract and lucrative salary deals. Here are the MLB predictions for Josh Donaldson going to Washington Nationals and Nicholas Castellanos with Arizona Diamondbacks deal.
Josh Donaldson Trade Deal with Washington Nationals
Josh Donaldson who previously played for the Toronto Blue Jay is getting a lot of interest from MLB teams such as Washington Nationals, Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves and the Minnesota Twins. But expert reports says that the Nationals could easily win the race by offering a long-term contract and a large annual salary to Donaldson.
On the Donaldson market: #Dodgers still in, but teams in bidding fear #Nationals will go big on either a four-year deal or three-year contract with a high AAV. A four-year deal would extend through Donaldson’s age 37 season.

Washington failed to re-sign Anthony Rendon and lost him to the Los Angeles Angels in the last free agency and they need a suitable replacement. John Donaldson is one of the best free agent left in the market with 33 doubles and 37 home runs and there is a high possibility that the Washington Nationals offers the veteran a three to four years contract.
Nicholas Castellanos Traden Deal with Arizona Diamondbacks
John Castellanos has been quite unpredictable in the MLB free agency but that doesn’t mean he won’t settle down. The Arizona Diamondbacks have already made their intention very clear when they signed Madison Bumgarner for a five-year $85 million contract.

It doesn’t mean that the D-Backs won’t sign more players as they have a dire need of talent in their outfield. Castellanos has hit 27 home runs combined for Detroit Tigers and Chicago Cubs in the last MLB season. Since John won’t cost a draft pick to any team that signs him, we could soon see him hitting home runs for the Arizona Diamondbacks at the start of the MLB 2020 season.
