Joe Saunders Receiving Multi-Year Offers

After being non-tendered by the Arizona Diamondbacks in early December, Joe Saunders hit the open marketplace. As a southpaw starter, it wouldn't be hard for Saunders to find another job, but hitting free agency might have been the best thing to happen to Saunders. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Saunders is receiving multi-year offers from clubs, and a three-year deal is in play.

Twitter / @Ken_Rosenthal: Sources: Saunders receiving one-year and multi-year offers. Three-year deal possible. #Tigers, #Marlins among logical fits. #MLB

Saunders, 30, posted a 3.69 ERA across 212 innings of work with a 4.6 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9. The D'Backs non-tendered him after acquiring Trevor Cahill from Oakland.

Teams looking for innings eaters will definitely be in play for Saunders' services, such as the Baltimore Orioles who are in dire need of innings from their starters. Rosenthal believes the Tigers and Marlins are among logical fits, but it's unknown the money and years they are offering as of now.
