Update: Saunders was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained left shoulder Saturday, the Diamondbacks report.
Recommendation: Saunders missed his start Friday due to an inability to get his shoulder loose in the bullpen. The extent of his injury is unclear at this time. Jonathan Albaladejo was recalled from Triple-A Reno, but he will probably only work out of the pen. The Diamondbacks can backdate Saunders' DL start date to the 17th, so there's a chance he could be back at the start of July.
