KANSAS CITY -- The Mariners received a positive report from Triple-A Tacoma, where Michael Saunders collected three hits in his first rehab stint.

Saunders finished Friday's game 3-for-4 with a run, two RBIs and a walk.

Seattle placed Saunders on the 15-day disabled list on June 11 with right shoulder inflammation.

He's eligible to return to the club on Thursday, giving him a shot at joining the Mariners for the start of their series with the Indians on Friday at Safeco Field.

In 52 games (165 plate appearances), Saunders has posted a .265/.313/.429 triple slash line.
