Outfielder Michael Saunders will be working on his fourth Major League team this season. On Monday, multiple reports came out that the 9-year veteran slugger had signed a minor league deal with the Chicago White Sox. Saunders, as of Tuesday, joined the White Sox Triple-A team Charlotte Knights, where he will be seeing some time before he gets any gameplay in Chicago. Chicago is in need of outfield presence at the moment, with injuries breaking down an already bleak season.

The White Sox need outfield help

It was announced by the team after a game in a recent series versus the Texas Rangers that outfielder Nicky Delmonico would be out for four to six weeks with a broken hand.

Delmonico had a pitch hit his hand from Rangers pitcher Matt Moore during the second inning in last Friday's game.

Before this game, the White Sox outfield was already down a man. Right-fielder Avicial Garcia has had to deal with some hamstring issues and is expected to be out until sometime in June. Now with Delmonico added to the disabled list as well, the White Sox were running out of options.

Another chance for Saunders

Saunders recently decided to opt out of his minor league deal with the Baltimore Orioles, his third try at a major league stint this season. He had minor league deals with the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Kansas City Royals, but Saunders was released by each team respectively before spring training was over.

When he decided to opt out, Saunders was hitting just a .161 batting average with Baltimore's Triple-A team Norfolk Tide.

At 31 years old, the 9-year veteran outfielder should still have some game left in him.

Last season he split time with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philidelphia Phillies.

He had to deal with some injuries of his own. Saunders only managed to hit six home runs and 21 RBI's in 73 games split with the two organizations.

His only all-star season came on the year before when, with the Blue Jays, Saunders hit 24 home runs in 140 games. He earned a slash line of .253/.388/.478.

Saunders was a top prospect coming up with the Seattle Mariners.

But, as said before, he has dealt with some career nagging injuries.

In 2015 he missed most of the season with a torn meniscus that he received in spring training. He has also had to deal with shoulder injuries and oblique issues.

All the White Sox can hope for is that Saunders can pick up some juice that he seemed to show during his all-star campaign with Toronto in 2016. They also need to hope that he can stay healthy, unlike the rest of the White Sox outfield.
