AP source: Phillies, Saunders agree to $9M, 1-year deal

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Outfielder Michael Saunders and the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed on a $9 million, one-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity on Monday because the Phillies had not announced the agreement.

Saunders' deal was first reported by MLB.com. MLB Network reported Saunders has an option for 2018 worth $11 million with escalators that can make it reach $14 million, and the deal includes a $1 million buyout.
