Saunders aims to provide leadership in Phillies clubhouse

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) After moving from the All-Star-laden clubhouse in Dunedin to the young locker room in Clearwater six miles up the road, veteran outfielder Michael Saunders is embracing a leadership role with the Philadelphia Phillies this spring.

Saunders, who turned 30 two weeks after filing for free agency this offseason, is an elder statesman in the Phillies' clubhouse and one of just two players, along with fellow newcomer Howie Kendrick, in the team's regular lineup who is not in his 20s.

"I'm not looking to change the way I act or change the way I do things, with my routine or anything like that," Saunders said. "There are a few guys in this clubhouse that have been around. If (there's) something that needs to be said, it will be said. But I learned from my first few days in the big leagues that you lead by example."
