Jeremy Bonderman returning to the majors for the first time since 2010 certainly went much better than I expected in that he wasn’t a complete disaster and actually strung together a few good starts, but after back-to-back poor outings the Mariners designated him for assignment.
Bonderman finishes with a 4.93 ERA in seven starts overall, but that included more walks (17) than strikeouts (16) in 38 innings and there isn’t much in his pre-call-up performance at Triple-A that suggests he’s capable of better.
Seattle will need to add another starter to the rotation for Thursday’s game and 23-year-old top prospect Erasmo Ramirez–who thrived in his first taste of the majors last year–has a 3.09 ERA and 42/14 K/BB ratio in 44 innings at Triple-A.
