Saunders replaced by Collmenter against Chicago
Saunders went through his warmups before Friday night's game, but the team announced just before the first pitch that right-hander Josh Collmenter was taking his place.
Saunders had a decent outing his last time out, allowing two runs in six innings during a 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night. He is 4-5 with a 3.44 ERA this season.
Collmenter started the season in the rotation and was bumped to the bullpen after struggling in four starts.
