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.
