The Arizona Diamondbacks non-tendered Saunders two weeks ago and made the 12-game winner a free agent. He also had a 3.69 ERA, lost 13 games, and struck out 108 in 212 innings pitched.
MLB.com, however, does not make a Saunders-Marlins matchup sound probable, reporting that the team "may eventually seek" Saunders and "is not ideally looking to have two soft tossing lefties in their rotation," referring to Buehrle.
As one National League source tells the Miami Herald, though, "Anytime you hear a pitcher's name, you can safely say the Marlins are in."
