SURPRISE, Ariz. Adidas T.J. Oshie Jersey . -- Joe Saunders was the opposing pitcher who helped end the Texas Rangers last playoff appearance two seasons ago. Now the veteran left-hander will get a chance to earn a spot in the Texas rotation after finalizing a one-year contract that guarantees him the $500,000 minimum. Saunderss salary would increase to $1.5 million if he makes the team. He can earn performance bonuses in addition to his salary under the deal completed Tuesday. With injured lefty Derek Holland expected to be out at least half the season after knee surgery, Saunders joined the team in Arizona on Wednesday to provide another potential starting option. "I feel like Im right on track," said Saunders, who had been throwing bullpen sessions on his own. Saunders has an 89-81 career record with a 4.30 ERA in 221 games, all starts with the Los Angeles Angels (2005-10), Arizona (2010-12), Baltimore (2012) and Seattle (2013). The 32-year-old lefty was 11-16 with a career-high 5.26 ERA in 32 starts last season before Seattle declined his 2014 option. In the 2012 AL wild-card game at Texas, Saunders allowed one run over 5 2-3 innings in Baltimores 5-1 victory over Texas. Before that playoff victory, Saunders had lost his six previous starts and had a 9.38 ERA in games in Texas. He was 1-1 with a 6.35 ERA there in two starts for Seattle last season when he allowed 19 hits and nine runs in 11 1-3 innings. "I love the ballpark. I think it was more a factor of the lineup than the ballpark," Saunders said. "Its nice to be able to get on the good side of things." Infielder-outfielder Alex Castellanos was designated for assignment to make room on the Rangers major league roster. The Rangers have 10 days to trade, release or outright Castellanos to the minor leagues. He was claimed on waivers from Boston in December and was 3 for 9 in five games this spring training.

Joakim Nordstrom and Garret Ross also scored for Chicago and Corey Crawford made 30 saves. Tomas Tatar scored twice for Red Wings (2-3-0), Jonathan Ericsson added a goal and Gustav Nyquist had three assists. WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers were back on the field Monday for the first time since they fell 26-3 to the Edmonton Eskimos last week, their first loss of the season, and with five quarterbacks throwing balls it looked at times like training camp all over. In some ways, maybe it is, because the Bombers know they have to find ways to correct flaws in their game that Mike Reilly and the Eskimos did a very handy job of exploiting. "It might have been a little bit of a wake-up call," said Winnipeg quarterback Drew Willy, who was sacked five times as his offence was held to just one field goal. "Obviously they are a good defence but we need to play better over all to give our defence a chance, because they played really well." And a lot. Winnipegs defence was on the field for more than 38 minutes, their offence just over 21 in the lopsided game that went bad early. It isnt encouraging that two key starters on that defence could be missing in action when the Bombers visit the B.C. Lions on Friday. Coach Mike OShea says defensive back Johnny Sears and lineman Jason Vega are doubtful. He says Sears has a hamstring issue that will be evaluated later in the week while Vega has a few ailments that likely will keep him off the field. The coach wasnt pushing the panic button, however. "Weve also got guys that have been practising very, very hard behind them," he said. "Were set up nicely depth-wise on defence, thats for sure." On Monday, the Bombers also shuffled players on their offensive line and they got their newest quarterback into the game, as Josh Portis learns Winnipegs offence. He was picked up last week from the Toronto Argonauts to add CFL experience to their backup pool. "Ive learned a lot, being in Toronto," Portis said after practice, praising Ricky Ray as a great teacher. "The game is different up here," he added. "Youve just got to pay attention to small details and the dimensions of the game, the angles of the game are a little different." With Mason Mills on Winnipegs practice rroster, plus backups Robert Marve and Brian Brohm, who have been around since rookie camp, the Bombers now have five pivots. Cheap Adidas Capitals Jerseys. Receiver Aaron Kelly was practising again Monday and says he feels fine after being sidelined last week with a swollen knee, but OShea says they will also decide whether hes ready to return later in the week. While the Bombers are coming off that 26-3 home loss to Edmonton, the Lions are riding high after their 41-5 thumping of the Montreal Alouettes. This Friday also has been officially declared Geroy Simon Day in Vancouver, to honour the receiver who helped lead the Lions to two Grey Cups and added one more ring to his collection with the Saskatchewan Roughriders last year before retiring. Simon, who spent his first two seasons with the Bombers before joining B.C., is the CFLs all-time career leader in receiving yards with 16,352, ranks first in pass receptions with 1,029 and third in touchdown receptions with 103. The Bombers also added two more players to their practice roster Monday, international running back Sam McGuffie and Canadian linebacker Kyle Jones. Jones is in his sixth season in the CFL, with stints in Hamilton, B.C. and Toronto. He has a career 34 special teams tackles and seven defensive tackles. "Not only can he play special teams and do that well for you, he can get you out of a game in a lot of different spots," said OShea, Torontos former special teams co-ordinator before he took over the Bombers., "One thing he cant do is snap to himself, hold it and kick his own field goal. But I havent asked him to do that, so maybe he can." Thay may not be a talent he needs in Winnipeg. Rookie kicker Liram Hajrullahu was pressed into handling punting duties for the Bombers last week as well, after Mike Renaud injured himself during practice. The Bombers didnt suffer for the switch, with his 10 punts averaging just over 45 yards, a little better than Renaud this season. Hajrullahu says he feels comfortable handling both but wants to get better at punting, which is more complicated.
