News: Saunders is batting eighth and handling right field in Monday's contest against the Astros, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports. Impact: Activated from the DL after a two-month absence due to a strained left oblique, Saunders will immediately slot into the lineup. The lack of output from those who covered right field in his place could result in an everyday gig right off the bat. However, he could also be eased into action.(RotoWire, )

News: Saunders (oblique) was activated from the DL on Monday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports. Impact: After taking nearly two months to recover from a strained left oblique, Saunders could slot into right field immediately upon his return, especially considering the underwhelming options available to manager Lloyd McClendon at the moment. During his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma, Saunders supplied a base knock in six of 10 games, batting .257 (9-for-35) with two RBI, six runs scored, and a 14:11 BB:K.(RotoWire, )

News: Saunders (oblique) is on schedule to return from the DL prior to Monday's game against the Astros, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. Impact: With Dustin Ackley slumping and the Mariners currently rotating a slew of undesirable options in right field, Saunders could reclaim a starting role immediately upon his activation. Though he's been out for nearly two months, Saunders was enjoying a productive season prior to suffering the oblique injury, batting .276 with six homers and three stolen bases over 196 at-bats.(RotoWire, )
