Player Notes
Michael Saunders (knee) said he hopes to start light running exercises in the next few days.

Advice: Saunders has been hitting in minor league games in recent days, but he's yet to run the bases. The outfielder is recovering from February knee surgery and, while he won't be ready for the season, Saunders could return by mid-April if all goes well.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons has acknowledged Michael Saunders (knee) won't be ready for Opening Day.

Advice: It's impressive that Saunders even made it close after undergoing surgery in late February on his left knee. He should be ready to rock by the middle of April and carries fantasy sleeper potential as the primary left fielder on what should be a potent Blue Jays squad. The 28-year-old hit .273 with eight homers and a .791 OPS in 78 games last season for the Mariners.

Michael Saunders (knee) will get some at-bats in a minor league game Tuesday.

Advice: Saunders, who had knee surgery in late February, returned to action in a minor league game last Thursday. The original expectation was that he would miss the start of the season, but he's way ahead of schedule. He makes for a nice late-round flier in mixed fantasy league drafts.
