Bonderman Not Returning To Tigers

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski told Tom Gage of the Detroit News that the team is not signing Jeremy Bonderman (via Twitter ).

Gage says that means Bonderman is about to sign somewhere else. The team had said it was open to re-signing the 28-year-old right-hander.

Bonderman was 8-10 last season with a  5.53 ERA in 29 starts for the Tigers. He’s 67-77 with a 4.89 ERA in 193 career starts. He’s pitched for Detroit since he came up as a 20-year-old rookie in 2003.

This is nothing but speculation, but Washington would make sense as a landing spot for Bonderman.

UPDATE: The Indians are in talks with Bonderman,’s Jordan Bastrain writes . The Indians appear to be offering a major-league contract and offering him a chance to compete for a spot in the rotation.
