Saunders receives treatment on hip

PHOENIX -- Joe Saunders underwent treatment on his ailing left hip on Wednesday, one day after tossing six innings against the Rockies.

Saunders began to feel soreness in the hip following his April 27 start against the Phillies.

"It's feeling better since the treatment," Saunders said. "Hopefully, it's a non-issue."

Saunders' next scheduled start is on Sunday, in San Diego.

"I think so," he said when asked if he would be able to pitch.
