Description: Texas lefty Joe Saunders will return from the DL Wednesday against Minnesota. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports
Insight: Saunders hasn't pitched since bruising his ankle April 4th against Tampa Bay. Scott Baker (0-1, 6.35 ERA) will lose his spot in the rotation when Saunders returns.
 
4/29/2014 9:56:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Joe Saunders (ankle) will throw three innings or 50 pitches Friday in an extended spring training game, according to Anthony Andro of foxsportssouthwest.com.
Insight: Saunders went on the DL with a bruised left ankle after being hit by a comebacker on April 4. With Colby Lewis and Matt Harrison back, there's no room in the rotation for Saunders at the moment.
 
Cold3/23/2014 8:00:00 PM
Description: Texas starter Joe Saunders got lit up Sunday against the Padres.
Insight: Saunders was tagged for eight hits and nine runs in 1 1/3 innings, though only four of the runs were earned. Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram says Saunders is dealing with a dead arm and it's unknown if he'll be able to make his next start. We don't have high expectations for Saunders this season.
 
3/5/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: The Rangers have finalized a one-year contract with lefty Joe Saunders.
Insight: The Rangers needed some starting pitching depth with Matt Harrison coming back from back surgery, Derek Holland out until midseason following microfracture knee surgery and Alexi Ogando presenting a health risk. Saunders had a 1.60 WHIP and gave up 25 homers in 183 innings for Seattle last season. That's not a good combination, especially now that he'll be pitching at Rangers Ballpark instead of Safeco Field.

Description: Former Angels and Diamondbacks lefthander Joe Saunders is close to signing with Texas. SOURCE: Evan Grant, Dallas Morning News
Insight: It sounds like Saunders will receive a major league contract. The Rangers struggled with pitching last season (4.31 ERA was 26th in MLB) but we don't think Saunders (11-16, 5.26 ERA for Seattle in 2013) is the answer.
 
Hot7/15/2013 12:52:00 PM
Description: Mariners left-hander Joe Saunders has won his last three games while yielding just two earned runs over 20 2/3 IP.
Insight: Saunders doesn't draw the attention that Felix Hernandez or Hisashi Iwakuma get, but he has yielded one earned run or less in seven of his last nine starts.
 
5/18/2013 8:48:00 PM
Description: Mariners left-hander Joe Saunders gave up 11 hits and four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings Saturday against Cleveland, but he escaped with a no decision.
Insight: Saunders is 3-4 with a 5.64 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP. However, he is 3-0 with a 0.94 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP in four starts at Safeco Field, compared to 0-4 with an 11.25 ERA and a 2.50 WHIP on the road.
 
2/7/2013 9:04:00 PM
Description: The Mariners have agreed to a one-year deal with free agent left-hander Joe Saunders, pending a physical. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, FOXSports.com
Insight: Saunders went 9-13 with a 4.07 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 28 starts for Arizona and Baltimore last season. He knows the AL West well, having pitched with the Angels for five years, but he posted an ERA over 4.60 in his last two seasons there. Safeco Field is much more pitcher-friendly than Chase Field and Camden Yards, but keep in mind the Mariners are also moving in the fences this season.
 
10/6/2012 9:42:00 AM
Description: Orioles starter Joe Saunders kept the Rangers' offense in check Friday by allowing just six hits and one run over 5 2/3 innings of work.
Insight: Friday was Saunders' first postseason win in five appearances. Saunders is now 4-3 with a 3.40 ERA in seven starts since being acquired by Baltimore in late August.
 
10/4/2012 4:22:00 PM
Description: Lefthander Joe Saunders will make the start for the Orioles Friday when they face Texas in a one game playoff to determine which team will play the Yankees in the Division Series.
Insight: Aside from his first game with the team back in August, Saunders (9-13, 4.07 ERA) has been rock solid for Baltimore, collecting a 3.66 ERA over his last six appearances. He's 3-7 with a 6.48 ERA in 11 career starts versus the Rangers.
 
9/3/2012 10:23:00 PM
Description: Joe Saunders's second start for Baltimore went much better than his first. In six and a third scoreless innings, the recently-acquired lefthander gave up only three hits, walking a pair and striking out two.
Insight: Saunders actually had a perfect game going until Adeiny Hechavarria broke up the party with a two-out single in the bottom of the sixth inning. Saunders is now 7-11 for the year with a 4.26 ERA in 23 starts.
 
Cold8/30/2012 9:34:00 AM
Description: Joe Saunders struggled in his first start with the Orioles Wednesday night. In five and a third innings, the 31-year-old lefthander gave up seven runs (six of them earned) and 10 hits as Baltimore fell 8-1 to the AL Central-leading White Sox.
Insight: After putting together a strong opening half to the 2012 campaign (4-5, 3.44 ERA), Saunders has struggled to stay above water since the All-Star break (2-6, 5.96).
 
8/26/2012 2:36:00 PM
Description: The Orioles traded for left-handed pitcher Joe Saunders on Sunday. The Diamondbacks are receiving reliever Matt Lindstrom and a player to be named later.
Insight: Saunders (6-10, 4.22 ERA) is expected to make his Baltimore debut Tuesday night versus the White Sox.
 
7/4/2012 10:01:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Joe Saunders will make a minor league rehab start Sunday, according to the team's official website. The left-hander has been dealing with a strained shoulder.
Insight: Saunders hoped to return after a 51-pitch simulated game Tuesday, but the team is having him start a minor league game as a precaution. He should rejoin Arizona's rotation after the All-Star break.
 
6/29/2012 12:41:00 PM
Description: The hope is that Arizona lefthander Joe Saunders will be ready to return to the Diamondbacks' starting rotation right around the All-Star break.
Insight: Saunders' strained shoulder is healing quickly and it looks like he'll be ready to come back after the minimum 15 days required of a trip to the DL. Look for the 31-year-old to begin a rehab assignment for the Diamondbacks shortly.
 
6/24/2012 3:51:00 PM
Description: Arizona lefthander Joe Saunders is headed to the disabled list. He is suffering from a strained left shoulder.
Insight: Saunders (4-5, 3.44 ERA) had given up three runs or fewer in each of his last four starts before the injury. Saunders' deactivation could open the door for top pitching prospect Trevor Bauer (4-0, 2.79 in seven starts for Triple-A Reno) to make his major league debut.
 
6/21/2012 7:05:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Joe Saunders does not make for a good streaming option Friday against the Cubs due to his struggles at home this season.
Insight: Saunders (3.44 ERA) has been solid this season, though most of his success has come on the road, where he is 1-1 with a 1.82 ERA in six starts. At Chase Field, Saunders is 3-4 with a 5.01 ERA and 1.57 WHIP as well as a .320 BAA.
 
3/29/2011 6:31:00 PM
Description: Joe Saunders gave up five earned runs over 3 2/3 innings today.
Insight: He has been one of the worst pitchers in the Cactus League this spring and he shouldn't be active in any leagues for his first regular season start.
 
3/6/2011 5:56:00 PM
Description: Joe Saunders allowed four runs in two innings today, raising his spring training ERA to 15.88.
Insight: Saunders strikes out batters at a very low rate and even in the NL we don't see much potential. He shouldn't be drafted in mixed leagues.
 
9/27/2010 8:04:00 AM
Description: Saunders allowed two runs on six hits over five innings on Sunday against the Dodgers. He walked two and struck out six.
Insight: Saunders pitched well but did not factor into the decision. He remains at 3-6 with a 4.40 ERA with Arizona. (RapidDraft.com)
