(7/29/14) Royals pitcher Joe Saunders has opted out of his deal with the team to become a free agent, MLBDailyDish.com reports.

(7/8/14) Veteran left-hander Joe Saunders has been signed to a minor league contract by the Royals.
Saunders, who was dispatched by Texas on Friday, lost his last three decisions as a member of the starting rotation, giving up 17 runs in 13 2/3 innings in the process to lower his ERA to 6.13.
He is set to report to Triple-A Omaha.
|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.
