The Colorado Rockies released outfielder Michael Saunders on Sunday. He was in camp as a non-roster invitee.
The 32-year-old Victoria, British Columbia, Canada native will attempt to find another team before the season begins. With there being a few days left in spring training before the start of the season, it’ll be tough for him to earn a big league shot right away.
He last played in Major League Baseball with the Philadelphia Phillies and the Toronto Blue Jays in 2017. He played 12 games with the Blue Jays and 61 games with the Phillies.
As a member of the Blue Jays, he had a .167 batting average with 1 RBI. He also had three hits and one run.
He had a .205 batting average with the Phillies with six home runs and 20 RBIs. He also had nine doubles and two triples on 41 hits, while scoring 25 runs.
He spent two full seasons and part of the third with the Blue Jays. Saunders also spent six full seasons with the Seattle Mariners.
In his nine-year MLB career, he has a .232 batting average with 81 home runs and 263 RBIs in 775 games. He also has 123 doubles and 19 triples on 570 hits, while scoring 324 runs.
