Found January 04, 2012 on My Sports Rumors:
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Joe Saunders has been receiving offers from multiple teams. The offers reportedly range from one to three years, no idea at the dollar value. Saunders is coming off a fairly solid season so I’m not as surprised as others. @Ken_Rosenthal: Sources: Saunders receiving one-year and multi-year offers. Three-year deal possible. #Tigers, #Marlins among logical fits. #MLB Some will argue that Saunders doesn’t deserve a multi-year deal, me I’m not against it if it’s at the right price. Saunders actually stayed healthy for the entire 2011 season, throwing a career high 212 innings over 33 starts. His ERA of 3.69 was also the second lowest of his career. His career ERA is slightly over four and he does tend to give up the long ball at a high rate. So if I were say the Tigers or Marlins I’d say it’s buyer beware. For a contender he’s not a bad choice to put in the middle to back end of your rotation, they just ...
