Canada outfielder Michael Saunders hit .727 playing against Pool D opponents United States, Mexico, and Italy in the World Baseball Classic. Of his eight hits, three were doubles and one was a home run in a deciding game against the U.S. earlier today. Overall, he drove in seven runs with his hot bat.

U.S. third baseman David Wright was considered a top candidate for the award as well, as he hit a crucial grand slam against Italy last night. Overall, he had five hits in 11 at-bats with three walks and five runs batted in as well.

Saunders hit 19 home runs playing right field for the Seattle Mariners last year in his first full season in the Majors.

    Saunders and Morneau hit very well and should be steals in fantasy baseball this season.

      I don’t know. Have 8 hits, a few doubles, an incredibly important homerun and hit .727?

    An MVP coming from a non-playoff team? Inconceivable!

    Had this guy tucked up my sleeve for this fantasy season…I hope he stays off the radar. Allen Craig is another guy that is going to kill the ball and fall in drafts.
