The Mariners have called up Jeremy Bonderman from Triple-A Tacoma to start on Sunday against the Twins, per Greg Johns on Twitter. Bonderman, now 30 years old, hasn’t thrown a pitch in the Majors since October 1, 2010, a season in which he posted a 5.53 ERA in 171 innings. The right-hander has a 4.52 ERA in 63.2 innings with Tacoma.
Bonderman dealt with thoracic outlet syndrome in his right shoulder in 2008 and ’09, and had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow last year. The first round pick of the Athletics back in 2001, Bonderman has dealt with a ton of adversity as he has never finished with an ERA lower than 4.00 in any season.
