We're hearing Saunders (.272, 4 HR, 25 RBI) could resume baseball activities later this week so his DL stint shouldn't require more than the minimum 15 days.

Insight: Saunders is limited to pinch-running until his laceration heals up. The outfielder is hitting just .165 with zero homers and 40 strikeouts over his last 115 at-bats dating back to May 16, so he shouldn't be owned in any leagues.

Insight: Saunders' Thursday night two-hit game had his first multi-hit game since June 2 and his first extra base hit since June 1. This is not a guy who is about to turn his season around. He's hitting just .206 with a .618 OPS and should be avoided.
 
Cold6/19/2013 11:13:00 AM
Description: Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders has gone 14-for-96 (.146) with zero homers and 36 strikeouts over his last 30 games.
Insight: He also has a .158 average (3-for-19) against Angels starter C.J. Wilson, who will be on the hill Wednesday. Saunders can be dropped in all leagues, but fantasy owners who do own him should stick him on the bench Wednesday and for the foreseeable future.
