  • Saunders pleased with first spring start

    Back in December, when Joe Saunders was non-tendered by the Arizona Diamondbacks and became a free agent, few (including Saunders himself) thought that the veteran would be in camp with Arizona.

    The early part of spring training is all about players working kinks out and playing their way back into shape. So if you get roughed up a little bit in your Cactus League debut, so be it.
