|Joe Saunders hits 15-day disabled list Monday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/7/14) Rangers pitcher Joe Saunders has been placed on the disabled list with an ankle injury.
The move is retroactive to Saturday, so Saunders won't have to spend 15 days on the disabled list. Daniel McCutchen has been called up from Triple-A to replace Saunders. Saunders was removed from his only start after taking a line drive off his ankle.
|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.
