Tigers bring back Bonderman on minor league deal

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have agreed to a minor league deal with right-hander Jeremy Bonderman, who pitched for the team from 2003-2010.

The Tigers announced the move Sunday. The 30-year-old Bonderman is expected to join Triple-A Toledo on Thursday at Buffalo.

Bonderman went 67-77 during his stint with the Tigers. He made it back to the majors this year with Seattle, going 1-3 with a 4.93 ERA. He had four straight strong starts between June 7 and June 23, but was battered for 10 earned runs and 13 hits in just 8 1-3 innings over his last two outings for the Mariners.

Seattle designated Bonderman for assignment, and he chose to become a free agent.
