Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Planning routine off days to maintain health
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Saunders is likely to continue seeing routine days off, specifically when the Jays play at home on artificial turf, Sportsnet reports.

Due to injuries, Saunders only played in 87 games over the past two seasons. He's off to an exceptional start, hitting .318 with a .375 on-base percentage, a .530 slugging percentage, eight doubles and two home runs, and has taken over the valuable leadoff spot in an elite offense. With a routine maintenance plan seemingly in place, Saunders is best suited for daily leagues.

Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Launches homer in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael Saunders made his return tot he lineup after a three-day absence, going 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI.

Saunders has gotten off to a raging hot start to the season, hitting .345 this month despite dealing with a hamstring injury. Health is always a problem for Saunders, who played in just nine games last year and 78 the year before that, but the outfielder already has nine extra-base hits this year. He had double-digit homers and steals in his last full season back in 2013.

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

Michael Saunders (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

It's the third straight absence for Saunders, who wasn't available to pinch hit in either of the previous two contests. The Jays haven't provided any indication yet that Saunders will require a DL stint, but that could become a possibility if his injury lingers into the middle of the week. With Saunders out of commission, Ezequiel Carrera will get another start in left field while serving as the club's leadoff hitter.
