Fantasy Impact:

The move is somewhat surprising, given Saunders signed a $9 million contract with the Phillies this past winter. He has been horrible though, batting just .205 through the middle of June. The 30-year-old was an All-Star just last season, so he will likely latch on with another team soon.
