Phillies' Michael Saunders: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders (groin) returned to action Friday, going 0-for-2 with a strikeout after replacing Daniel Nava (hamstring) in the sixth inning.

Saunders had departed Thursday's game with a groin strain and was subsequently left out of Friday's starting lineup, but his return indicates the absence may have been a simple precaution. Despite the lackluster performance Friday, the 30-year-old appears set to return to his starting role in right field. He's slashing .246/.296/.413 this season.

Phillies' Michael Saunders: Sitting out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders (groin) is not in the Phillies' starting lineup Friday against the Pirates.

Saunders suffered a groin strain in Thursday's contest against the Rangers that appears to still be lingering. The injury doesn't appear to be serious, according to manager Pete Mackanin, so continue to consider him day-to-day throughout the weekend. Daniel Nava will take over in right field for the time being.

Phillies' Michael Saunders: Groin injury may not be serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Pete Mackanin said the Phillies' training staff told him Saunders' groin strain does not appear to be serious, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Saunders left Thursday's game with tightness in his left groin. He was injured while running to first base on a groundout in the fifth inning. Daniel Nava could see some additional playing time if Saunders has to sit out any of this weekend's games.

Phillies' Michael Saunders: Removed early with tight groin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders was prematurely lifted from Thursday's game against the Rangers with tightness in his left groin, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Saunders was 1-for-2 before being replaced in the sixth inning by Ty Kelly. His status should be updated once he is able to be further evaluated by the Phillies' medical staff, but consider him day-to-day until then.
