Bonderman won't return to Detroit; Interest from Tribe?
Earlier this month rumors were floating about, that there was a chance that Jeremy Bonderman would be offered a contract to return to Detroit.
In an article that appeared on the Detroit News website on Tuesday, General Manager Dave Dombrowski said there was no chance that the 8-year veteran would return to the Tigers. Dombrowski also indicated that Vladimir Guerrero wasn’t “a good fit”.
This afternoon, there were indications that Bonderman wouldn’t appear to be a complete stranger for Tiger fans, as reports came out that the Cleveland Indians were “close” to signing Bonderman to a deal.
If those rumors end up being true, look for Bondo to sign a Minor-league contract with an invitation to Spring Training with Cleveland, where he could make the rotation with a strong spring training performance.
