Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Mariners | Michael Saunders appears headed to DL

Seattle Mariners OF Michael Saunders (shoulder) is expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, April 11, and OF Endy Chavez is likely who will replace him on the roster. Saunders is hoping that he is dealing with an AC joint sprain, and he's hoping to be back rather quickly.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders can probably be dropped in most cavernous mixed formats. Jason Bay and Raul Ibanez could wind up platooning in right field in the meantime, but both are more suited to contribute for you in AL leagues. Chavez will likely be used as outfield depth and to spell Franklin Gutierrez in center field on occasion.
