(6/30/14) Rangers pitcher Joe Saunders struggled in a loss Monday, giving up seven earned runs on nine hits and two walks in five innings while striking out two in his team's
Saunders (0-5) surrendered four home runs in the first four innings to put his team down 6-0 before giving up a run on a sacrifice fly in the fifth. It's been a rocky season for the pitcher, giving up 17 earned runs in 13 2/3 innings over his last three outings. He owns a 6.13 ERA, 2.07 WHIP and 22:20 K:BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings heading into Saturday's scheduled matchup with the Mets.
|The Mariners seemed like a logical fit for Joe Saunders in 2013. Hittable pitcher ... big park ... if it couldn't work there, it couldn't work anywhere. Guess it ccouldn't work anywhere. Saunders suffered through an abysmal season in which he ranked second-to-last among qualifiers in ERA and dead last in WHIP. And the worst part is it wasn't particularly shocking. His stuff has never measured up, as evidenced by his high hit rate and low strikeout rate. Guile can only carry a pitcher so far. Since bursting onto the scene with 17 wins in 2008, he has only once produced an ERA under 4.00, and in the not-so-hitter-friendly climate of today, that doesn't cut it. At age 32, Saunders may still get a look as a back-of-the-rotation innings eater for some rebuilding club, but if you value your ERA and WHIP at all, you'll stay far, far away from him on Draft Day.
