FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: MICHAEL SAUNDERS OUT UNTIL ALL-STAR BREAK WITH TORN MENISCUS

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders will be out until the All-Star break after he suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee when he stepped into a sprinkler hole while shagging fly balls on Wednesday.  Surgery will be performed and the rehab will take Saunders about five months to complete.  The fallout here is not a major one when it comes to 2015 fantasy baseball as the decent 15/15 ability Saunders brings is offset by annually ugly batting averages due to a very high K rate.  Still there was some anticipation Saunders could possibly increase his ratios to near-20/20 levels due to his ballpark improvement after leaving Seattle but that is now a moot point.  Feel free to cut Saunders loose in all but the very deepest of leagues.  Dalton Pompey is now likely to have already shored up a starting spot in the outfield which will increase his own sleeper value.
