CLEVELAND – It didn’t take new Indians third basemen Josh Donaldson long to make a big impact during a minor league rehab start in Columbus on Labor Day.
Donaldson, who was placed on the 10-Day disabled list on Monday so he could some more playing time in the minors before he’s ready to roll at the Major League level, walked in his first at-bat with the Columbus Clippers, and then hit a two-out grand slam in the 4th inning to give Columbus a 5-0 lead.
Here’s the video of Donaldson’s grand slam:

Hopefully when he’s ready he will bring that kind of power up to the Indians lineup once he’s ready to come off the DL.
