Joe Saunders still experiencing pain in ankle

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers starter Joe Saunders still isn't ready to return to action and it's unclear when he might return. Saunders attempted to throw a bullpen session Wednesday but had to cut it short after experiencing more pain in his left ankle. Saunders will take a few days off and then reassess. An MRI didn't show any structural issues, but did show a bone bruise. Saunders made one start for the Rangers, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits in 3 2/3 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Pitcher preview: Joe Saunders

A groundballer with a split. Joe Saunders is a back-of-the-rotation pitcher who won a bunch of games on a strong Angels team, and in doing so managed to convince some folks that he was something more.

Joe Saunders not worried with results -- yet

SAN ANTONIO -- Joe Saunders says he isn't worried about results, especially at the strange confines of Alamodome. If that means he'll be able to forget about them, that's a good thing for him. But the time for worrying about results starts next week. That's when it matters. And Saunders' spring training performance since joining the Rangers -- 16 earned runs on 24 hits in 12 2/3 innings in "A" games or exhibitions (including Saturday) this spring -- isn't something pleasurable to stare at on paper.
