Josh Donaldson and John Gibbons were separated after a heated argument in the dugout

Josh Donaldson was not pleased after striking out in the third inning against the Yankees. His tempers boiled over into the dugout, and manager John Gibbons confronted the Blue Jays star.

The incident started when Donaldson threw his bat upon entering the dugout. Gibbons argued with Donaldson about that behavior, but Donaldson wouldn’t back down.

It got to the point that teammates had to step in and pull Donaldson away from his manager. Donaldson also gave catcher Josh Thole a shove while trying to go back at Gibbons.
