Michael Saunders: Cut loose by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders was released by the White Sox on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Saunders was signed to a minor-league deal exactly one month ago, but failed to impress during his brief stay with Triple-A Charlotte. Across 13 games, he went just 7-for-46 (.152 average) and has only played in one contest since June 6. The 31-year-old outfielder will attempt to find a new home but remains unlikely to make much of an impact at the major-league level in 2018 even if another organization gives him a shot.

White Sox's Michael Saunders: Joins White Sox organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders signed with the White Sox on a minor-league deal and will report to Triple-A Charlotte.

Saunders has failed to stick with three teams already this season, having been released by the Pirates and Royals in spring training and the Orioles in mid-May. He's found another organization lacking in outfield talent at the big-league level, but he hit just .161 in 25 games for Triple-A Norfolk after hitting .202 at the major-league level last season, so the odds of him making an impact this season appear to be low.

Michael Saunders: Cut loose by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders was released by the Orioles on Tuesday, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

Saunders will look for major-league opportunities elsewhere after opting out of his minor-league deal with the Orioles. The 31-year-old was hitting just .161/.291/.253 across 25 games with Triple-A Norfolk. Given his struggles over the past two seasons, Saunders likely won't serve as anything more than organizational outfield depth wherever he winds up.

Orioles' Michael Saunders: Signs minor-league deal with O's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders signed a minor-league deal with the Orioles on Monday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Saunders failed to make both the Pirates and the Royals this spring. He'll hope to impress the Orioles enough at Triple-A Norfolk to earn a major-league call-up. The 31-year-old will need to perform far better than he did last year in order to stick around in the big leagues; he hit just .202/.256/.344 in 73 games with Philadelphia and Toronto.

Michael Saunders: Released by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saunders was released by the Royals on Saturday.

Saunders failed to make the Opening Day roster and rejected an assignment to Triple-A Omaha. He will look to find a new home after appearing in 73 major-league games split between Toronto and Philadelphia last season, slashing .202/.256/.344 with six home runs and 21 RBI.
