American League MVP Josh Donaldson has filed for $11.8 million in arbitration after he and the Toronto Blue Jays were unable to reach an agreement prior to Friday's deadline.

The Blue Jays countered by submitting an offer of $11.35 million.

Donaldson, who led the Blue Jays to the playoffs for the first time since 1992, batted .297 with 41 homers and a league-leading 123 RBIs last season.

He earned $4.3 million last season after losing an arbitration case against Toronto.

The Blue Jays agreed to one-year deals with right-handers Drew Storen ($8.375 million), Drew Hutchison ($2.2 million) and Steve Delabar ($835,000), left-handers Brett Cecil ($3.8 million) and Aaron Loup ($1.05 million) and outfielder Michael Saunders ($2.9 million).
