Player Notes
Michael Saunders had a monster night at the plate Friday, slugging three homers and knocking in eight runs as part of a 13-3 victory over the Orioles.

Advice: Saunders launched a three-run homer in the first inning, another three-run shot in the fourth, and added a two-run blast in the sixth. He had a chance for MLB’s first four-homer game since 2012 when he came up with the bases loaded in the eighth inning, but he grounded into a double play. Still, fantasy owners aren’t complaining. Saunders is the first player in MLB to amass at least three homers and eight RBI a game since teammate Edwin Encarnacion did it (three home runs, nine RBI) last August 29 against the Tigers. He’s now up to 15 homers and a .999 OPS on the year and continues to be one of baseball’s biggest surprises.

Michael Saunders (hamstring) is back in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Thursday night.

Advice: He will start in left field and bat cleanup versus Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. Saunders was held out Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's game with right hamstring tightness. It's clearly no big deal.
