Phillies' Michael Saunders: Fine after leaving game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Pete Mackanin says Saunders (hand) is "fine" after being removed from Friday's Grapefruit League game, Ryan Lawrence of The Philly Voice reports.

Saunders had exited after taking a pitch to his right hand, though Mackanin says the departure was precautionary. The veteran outfielder will be day-to-day as he recovers from the bruise and should be perfectly ready for Opening Day.

Phillies' Michael Saunders: Leaves game after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders left Friday's Grapefruit League contest after being hit by a pitch in the right hand, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Hopefully it's nothing too serious and more information should be available soon. Saunders is having a rough spring, hitting just .200/.308/.289 through 17 games, but is locked in as the Phillies' starting right fielder this coming season. Aaron Altherr is the likely replacement if he's forced to miss extended time.

Phillies' Michael Saunders: Not hitting well this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders is hitting .200/.308/.289 with a home run in 45 at-bats this spring.

Spring stats do not matter for Saunders, who is locked in as the Phillies' starting right fielder, but it would be nice to see him start producing a bit more with the regular season around the corner. Saunders hit fifth Thursday in what was a likely preview of the lineup manager Pete Mackanin will typically roll out against right handed pitchers this season.

Phillies' Michael Saunders: Finalizes deal with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Phillies officially announced the signing of Saunders to a one-year deal with a club option for 2018 on Thursday, Corey Seidman of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Saunders will earn $9 million this season and the club option for 2018 is worth $11 million, with escalators that could push the total value to $14 million. He will start in right field for the Phillies this season, and could be trade bait over the summer if the team is not in playoff contention. Severino Gonzalez was designated for assignment to make room for Saunders on the Phillies' roster.
