Michael Saunders returns to Mariners lineup; Peguero optioned
Michael Saunders has been activated from the disabled list after three games with Tacoma on a rehab stint (2-for-11, two runs, double, triple, two RBI, three walks). Saunders has been out since he sprained the AC joint in his right shoulder crashing into the wall while making a catch on April 9. Carlos Peguero, who was 2-for-6 with a homer since joining the team when Franklin Gutierrez went on the DL, was optioned to Tacoma.
Joe Saunders, meanwhile, will pitch against the team he started for — and won — in the playoffs last year, defeating Texas in the wild-card showdown.
