Mariners | Joe Saunders signed

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 11:23:59 -0800

The Seattle Mariners have signed free-agent P Joe Saunders (Orioles) to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders made eight starts for the Texas Rangers and six relief appearances for the Baltimore Orioles in 2014, struggling in both roles. It's uncertain whether the Mariners plan to use him as a starter or reliever but he has minimal fantasy value at this point in his career.

Royals | Joe Saunders starts for Omaha

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 14:25:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Joe Saunders pitched three innings, allowing one run, on three hits and issued a walk Sunday, July 13, for Triple-A Omaha. It was Saunders' first start since joining the organization.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders is insurance for the Royals. If injuries strike and he joins the rotation, he'll gain AL-only value. However, his upside is extremely limited.
