WATCH... THE YANKEES WILL SIGN JOE SAUNDERS
It appears that the Texas Rangers have released lefty starter Joe Saunders. Read HERE. Saunders was Designated for Assignment just the other day. According to News & Observer, "The Rangers... announced Friday that the team has released pitcher Joe Saunders, three days after the club designated the veteran lefty for assignment.
Saunders struggled mightily in eight starts this season, going 0-5 with a 6.13 ERA and permitting a .356 batting average against."
So what does it mean? It means, and this is pure speculation, that the Yankees who will most likely lose CC Sabathia this season to injury, and will try to sign Saunders, another lefty, in hopes to get lightning in a bottle and not pay a fortune.
Now, if I'm the Yankees, I walk right by Saunders... but let's see what happens.
