Michael Saunders went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Friday against the Indians.

Advice: Saunders, who got a late start on the season after knee surgery and a hamstring issue, is now just 2-for-20 (.100) with nine strikeouts since coming off the disabled list. Despite the early struggles, the 28-year-old is in a great position to be relevant in mixed fantasy leagues.
