• Mariners sign Bonderman to minor league deal

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Dec 22, 2012
    The Seattle Mariners have signed pitcher Jeremy Bonderman to a minor league contract, hoping the right-hander can make a comeback from Tommy John surgery. Bonderman had surgery on his right elbow last April. Bonderman has not pitched in the majors since 2010, when he went 8-10 with a 5.53 ERA for Detroit. Bonderman said he's been working out hard and has lost about 20 pounds from his final playing days with the Tigers, now packing about 220 pounds on his 6-foot-2 frame. Rich Harden, Scott Kazmir and Jeremy Bonderman have all achieved varying degrees of success in the big leagues though none of them reached a consistent level of dominance that many believed they were capable before injuries and ineffectiveness teamed up to put their careers in a holding pattern. But the big right-hander had Tommy John surgery in April and said he's now getting back to full strength, already able to throw fastballs off a mound, and looking forward to competing for a job this spring with the Mariners. Francisco Liriano’s new two-year, $14 million contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates headlined Friday's flurry of starting pitcher signings, but there were three other interesting and noteworthy players who reached minor league agreements with new teams and accepted invitations to spring training.
