Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Not in Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

With lefty Drew Smyly on the mound for the Rays, Saunders will take a seat as the Jays go with a starting outfield of Melvin Upton, Kevin Pillar and Ezequiel Carrera. Saunders is actually hitting better against lefties (.282) than righties (.259) on the season but has found slightly more success against right-handers over the course of his major league career.

Blue Jays' Michael Saunders: Two extra-base hits Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders went 2-for-3 with a double, a two-run homer and two runs scored Tuesday in Baltimore.

Monday's day off clearly did Saunders some good, as he came up with multiple extra-base hits in a game for the first time since Jul. 23. The right fielder is slashing a brutal .192/.263/.329 in August even after this effort, but hopefully he can build some momentum heading into September.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Saunders is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

Saunders returned to action Saturday after dealing with a hamstring ailment earlier in the week, but he'll return to the bench Sunday against right-hander Kyle Gibson. Jose Bautista will man right field in his stead, allowing Russell Martin to serve as the DH for the afternoon contest.
