Jeremy Bonderman says return to Tigers is unlikely

Sep 26, 2010, 12:37 PM EDT

Tigers right-hander Jeremy Bonderman was lit up for seven earned runs in just four innings Saturday against the Twins and did some venting in the clubhouse afterward.

Bonderman, an impending free agent, told Tom Gage of the Detroit News that “in all honestly” he probably won’t be back with the Tigers next season.  Whether he came to that conclusion because of his own struggles or because management has made some kind of indication that he isn’t wanted back, it seems likely that the righty will be moving on.

Bonderman, 27, has posted a 8-9 record, a 5.18 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP over 28 appearances this year.  He could find a job as a fourth or fifth starter on a number of teams, but he did suggest in July that he might retire.  So there’s that.
