    Saunders has an 88-92 mph fastball and a decent curveball, and he knows how to use them. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder ranked second in NCAA Division II this spring with a school-record 1.23 ERA. He should be the fourth Saginaw Valley State player ever drafted and the first since 1996, with a chance to beat Thomas Merkle (17th round, 1980) as the program's highest selection ever.
