UPDATED: Saunders crushed a 3-run homer to right in his second at-bat, first three-run homer for the Rainiers this season.

Since there is no Mariners game, I’m at the Rainiers’ game tonight. And I’d thought I’d pass on the news that outfield prospect Michael Saunders has been activated. Saunders had offseason surgery on his left shoulder (his throwing shoulder) at the end of last season, and his start had been delayed as he rehabbed. I know I mentioned a few days, he’d be back in mid-May, but he’s back sooner than expected.

But he’s back and Rainiers manager Daren Brown said Saunders has no restrictions and has been cleared completely. He’s in the lineup tonight, playing left field and batting second ahead of Jeff Clement in the line-up against the Fresno Grizzlies.

If you aren’t doing anything feel free to tune into 850-AM or the Rainiers website to listen to TNT contributor and venerable voice of the Rainiers Mike Curto call the game.
