Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Avoids arbitration, settles with TOR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael Saunders (knee) and the Toronto Blue Jays agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.9 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

Saunders was limited to only nine games in 2015 due to a lingering knee issue, but the team's medical staff is confident that he'll be ready to begin spring training. With Ben Revere dealt to Washington, Saunders will have an opportunity to seize the everyday left field role.

Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Could be ready for start of spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Blue Jays' medical staff is "extremely confident" that Saunders (knee) will be ready for the start of spring training, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

Saunders' knee injury limited him to just nine games in 2015 due to lingering inflammation in the joint that never allowed him to get back on the field. However, the medical staff's positive outlook on his recovery points to him being ready for the opening of spring training, where he very well may land the everyday role in left field with Ben Revere traded to the Nationals.

Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders has been ruled out for a return in 2015, manager John Gibbons said. Saunders played all of nine games in 2015, but a bone bruise in his knee ended his season in early May.

The veteran outfielder went 6 for 31 with three RBI in his nine games this year.
