Blue Jays' Saunders (knee) will get more at-bats in minor-league game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders will receive more at-bats in a minor-league game on Tuesday, according to Sportsnet.ca. Saunders is working his way back from knee surgery, but remains unlikely to return until mid-April.

Saunders spent the first six seasons of his MLB career with Seattle before he was acquired by Toronto in a December trade. He hit .273 with a .341 on-base percentage, .450 slugging percentage and .791 OPS in 78 games last season.

Blue Jays' Michael Saunders plays DH in minor-league game
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders was the designated hitter Thursday in a minor league contest, and although he did not run, he said he felt fine afterward, per the Toronto Star.

Saunders is working his way back from knee surgery, but likely will not return until mid-April. He went 1-for-5 with an opposite-field single.

"It was nice to lace 'em up and get back out there," Saunders said. "I'm ecstatic to be where I'm at now."

Blue Jays' Michael Saunders to see limited action Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders (knee) is scheduled to serve as the designated hitter in a minor-league game Thursday but will be prevented from running out of the batter's box, MLB.com reports.

Saunders has been able to take batting practice as he makes a quicker-than-expected return from knee surgery. It's not out of the question that the outfielder avoids a stint on the disabled list before the season begins.

Michael Saunders takes BP, nears return to Blue Jays
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Outfielder Michael Saunders took batting practice on Sunday, and he plans to return to the Blue Jays' lineup within a day or two. 

Saunders is recovering from knee surgery. He still needs to pass a series of running tests, and then he'll return for a minor league game. 

"Tomorrow, or the next day, he's going to go down to the Minor Leagues and he's going to hit," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm. "He's not going to run, but he's going to hit, so he'll get some at-bats in the DH spot so everything is moving forward."
