Michael Saunders (groin) not in the lineup Friday

Michael Saunders is not in the Phillies lineup tonight after suffering a groin injury on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

The injury is not considered serious, but apparently Saunders is not healthy enough to play tonight. Daniel Nava is playing RF and batting second in his place. Saunders has been his typical so-so self thus far, with a .250 AVG and four home runs on the season.

Michael Saunders homers

Michael Saunders went 2-for-4 with a single and a home run Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact

The blast was Saunders' fourth of the season. He's off to a slow start, batting just .246 thus far, and he doesn't need to be owned in fantasy leagues right now.

Michael Saunders goes 1-for-4 Saturday night

Michael Saunders collected a hit, a run, and picked up an RBI in Saturday night's 6-4 loss to the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact

Saunders is hitting just .237 on the year and should be considered off the fantasy radar except in the deepest of leagues.

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.
