News: Saunders (oblique) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment by the end of the Mariners' current road trip, ESPN 710 AM in Seattle reports. Impact: Sidelined with an oblique injury, Saunders progressed to hitting indoors last week and will take on-field batting practice Tuesday. The Mariners complete a six-game road swing Sunday in Baltimore, so Saunders is likely aiming to begin an assignment over the weekend. It's unknown, exactly, how long the assignment would last, but it's realistic to believe Saunders could re-join the Mariners by the end of next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Saunders (oblique) has progressed to hitting indoors, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports. Impact: It's a step in the right direction for Saunders, albeit a small one, as he'll need to face live pitching on the field and potentially go through a short rehab assignment before he's activated from the 15-day DL. The Mariners have not shared a timetable for Saunders' expected return to the starting lineup.(RotoWire, )
