|Michael Saunders dealing with illness on assignment |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/22/14) Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders might miss the next two or three games on his minor-league rehab assignment, as he is battling the flu, manager Lloyd McClendon told the Seattle Times Friday.
Saunders, who is on assignment as he recovers from a back injury, might need extra time on assignment given his absence. His assignment is set to end Aug. 26, but the Times reports the team may figure out how to get him more time.
|Mariners in no rush to activate Michael Saunders |

(8/17/14) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Sunday outfielder Michael Saunders (back) will make his return from the disabled list when he's ready. McClendon does not want to bring him back from a rehab assignment unless his timing is down offensively.
"Don't waste games here," McClendon said, per MLB.com. "It's too important. We've got to win them here. We ain't here to get timing down. We're here to win."
|Michael Saunders to resume rehab Thursday |

(8/13/14) Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders will resume his rehab assignment Thursday, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.
Saunders missed a few games in order to attend the birth of his child. He's been out since July 10 with an oblique injury. Saunders hit .276/.327/.434 over 196 at-bats prior to the issue.
|Michael Saunders leaves rehab for birth of child |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/11/14) Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders will leave his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma for a few days to attend the birth of his child, the Tacoma News Tribune reports Monday. Saunders has been out since July 10 with an oblique strain. He started rehab assignment on Thursday and has five hits through his first 14 at-bats.
|Michael Saunders reaches base twice in first rehab game |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/8/14) Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders started a minor-league rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Tacoma. Saunders reached base twice in his first game action since suffering an oblique strain. He finished 1 for 3 with a walk.
|The Mariners didn't necessarily intend for Michael Saunders to play every day last year, but because of one injury after another to their alternatives, that's what he ended up doing. And once again, he underwhelmed, hitting less than .250 for the fifth straight season to begin his career. After surprising with a near 20-20 performance in 2012, he didn't excel in any particular category in 2013 and more or less stopped running in the second half, when he had only three of his 13 steals. He did hit .261 with eight homers and an .816 OPS over his final 211 at-bats, which might have been just enough to earn him another look from the Mariners, but with his poor contact rate continuing to hold back his batting average five years into his career, you shouldn't count on him taking a big step forward at age 27. If he's still in line for regular at-bats at the start of the year, his modest power-speed potential will earn him some late looks in Rotisserie leagues, but chances are he'll go undrafted in most Fantasy formats.
