Updating a previous report, the deal between the Texas Rangers and SP Joe Saunders is for one year and $500,000. He would make $1.5 million if he is on the 25-man roster, and he might make more in incentives.
Fantasy Tip: Saunders will compete for a spot in the back end of the rotation, and he would be a serviceable head-to-head option in AL-only formats for his win potential, since he has a strong lineup providing offensive support.

The Texas Rangers will sign free-agent SP Joe Saunders (Mariners) to add to their rotation insurance, according to a baseball source. He went 11-16 with a 5.26 ERA in 183 innings for the Seattle Mariners last season.
Fantasy Tip: Saunders is no guarantee to win a rotation spot this spring. If he does, it'll be a temporary job, and his profile won't play very well at Globe Life Park. He'll be a desperation addition in AL-only leagues if he wins a job.
