Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders (hamstring) is out of the lineup Friday against Minnesota, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports.

With Saunders sitting out the second day in a row, Toronto will head into Friday's contest with an outfield of Melvin Upton, Kevin Pillar, and Jose Bautista. The club has yet to say the severity of Saunders's injury, so he should still be considered day-to-day at this point in time.

Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Dealing with hamstring issue
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Saunders is not in Thursday's lineup, as he is dealing with a hamstring injury, Blue Jays radio announcer Mike Wilner reports.

According to manager John Gibbons, Saunders felt the hamstring lock up on him Wednesday, so he'll be held out Thursday. The extent of the injury is unknown, but he should be considered day-to-day until more information becomes available. Ezequiel Carrera is manning right field in his stead, while Jose Bautista was activated off the DL and is set to DH on Thursday.

Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Out of lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders is not in Thursday's lineup against the Angels, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports.

Saunders has collected a trio of hits -- including a double and home run -- over the last two games, but he'll head to the bench Thursday in favor of Ezequiel Carrera in right field. Jose Bautista (knee) will return to the lineup Thursday as the team's DH and could cut into Saunders' playing time once he's healthy enough to return to the field.

Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Drops career-high 21st bomb Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Saunders went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

Saunders' eighth-inning smash pushed his career-high total to 21 on the season, but it was just his second homer in 66 at-bats this month. The veteran is in the midst of a career year, but his production has drastically dropped off in recent weeks. Saunders is slashing a paltry .167/.247/.288 in August -- his worst numbers across the board for any month.
