Michael Saunders finished with two hits against the Mets

In Tuesday's 6-2 win over New York (NL), Michael Saunders went 2-for-5 with one run scored and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Saunders' season batting average is still under the Mendoza Line (.244) and while he's still someone you can consider for deep fantasy leagues, he's not someone to consider giving a shot in standard leagues right now.

Michael Saunders off to a slow start for Phillies

Michael Saunders is off to a slow start for his new team in 2017, as he is hitting just .225 with zero home runs and eight strikeouts thus far.

Fantasy Impact

Michael Saunders had a pretty solid 2016 in Toronto, hitting 24 home runs and scoring 70 runs alongside a .253 average and .338 on-base percentage. Many thought that moving to a hitter friendly ballpark in Philadelphia and a clear shot at regular playing time could make Saunders a valuable late pick in deeper leagues. There is certainly still time for Saunders to turn things around, but he is off to a slow start so far.

Michael Saunders signs deal with the Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies have signed OF/1B Michael Saunders.

Fantasy Impact

Saunders is a great bat to have in the mid to bottom of any order. Finishing last year with 24 home runs and 57 RBI in only 140 games shows great potential for 30+ home runs if he can play a full season. Look for him to have great value near the end of any draft.

Michael Saunders homers versus old team

Michael Saunders was 1-for-4 Tuesday with his 24th HR of the season, driving in a pair of runs. Saunders had not homered since August 31st in Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact

Saunders is having a fine season, batting .257 (.341 OBP) with 24 HR and 56 RBI. It is by far his best season of his career so far, and is mostly attributed to finally being healthy for a full year.

Michael Saunders hits just third HR of August

Michael Saunders hit a two-run HR as part of a 2-for-3 night Tuesday versus the Orioles. Saunders also hit a double and struck out.

Fantasy Impact

Saunders has only hit three HR all August after going on a tear in the first half and making the AL All-Star team. He seems to have turned a corner of late, going 6-for-14 with two HR in his last four games.
