Phillies signed OF Michael Saunders to a one-year, $9 million contract with an $11 million club option for 2018.
Saunders found a less-than-fertile free agent market for himself this offseason after struggling badly in the second half of the 2016 season, but he looks like a good buy-low for the Phillies as they continue their rapid organizational rebuild. If he gets off to another hot start in 2017, the Phillies can deal him for more young talent. Saunders, 30, still finished with a respectable .815 OPS and 24 homers in 140 games last year with Toronto. He's a late-round guy in deep leagues. Jan 19 - 11:11 AM
