The Mariners declined the option for Saunders on Friday making him a free agent, Shannon Drayer of ESPN 710 Seattle reports.
Saunders made 32 starts for the Mariners in 2013 for a total of 183.0 innings. Though he ate up innings, he had a dismal 11-16 record with a 5.26 ERA. He did prove that his arm is capable of holding up over the course of a season, so a team may take a look at signing him as rotation depth or at least inviting him to spring training.
