Originally written January 06, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Left-hander Joe Saunders remains a free agent, but the veteran told Dan Connolly of The Baltimore Sun that he hopes to re-sign with the Baltimore Orioles. “I’m a pretty patient kind of guy. I’ve always been that kind of guy, to really wait and see how it all plays out,” said Saunders, who was 3-3 with a 3.63 ERA in seven regular season starts with the Orioles after being acquired from Arizona in August. “First and foremost, I’d like to come back to Baltimore and do some great things in 2013. But, from my standpoint, my hands are kind of tied. I pay my agent to do his job and hopefully it all works out.” The Orioles acquired Saunders late last summer from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for right-handed reliever Matt Lindstrom. The 31-year-old went on to post an ERA and WHIP of 3.63 and 1.276 over seven starts for the O’s, and he made two strong appearances in the playoffs. Beyond the Orioles, the Los Angeles Angels, New York Mets, Minnesota Twins and Seattle Mariners are among the other teams that have reportedly expressed interest in Saunders this offseason, according to Connolly.

  • Saunders wants to return. Morse might have come. Upton might be willing to be traded to the O's, but Duquette can't get his finger out of his nose. Perhaps, now that he's been extended, proving that "what have you done for me lately" isn't always the crucial criteria, he will finally get off the potand get us some needed bats in the lineup, along with Saunders return.
