As Spring Training nears, the Indians look to add righted-handed Jeremy Bonderman to their rotation. Indian’s general manager, Chris Antonetti, declined to comment about the Tribe nearing negotiations with the experienced ex-Detroit Tiger free agent, though Dave Dombroski, Tiger’s general manager, stated Detroit was no longer in the running for the righty, and Antonetti is still looking for outside help with starting pitching. In Bonderman’s 8 years with Detroit, he was 67-77 with an ERA or 4.89 in 207 outings. He was a part of the ’06 Detroit Tigers World Series run, but since has lost much of the drop on his go to stike out pitch, the slider, due to surgery on his right arm. Bonderman would be a nice third or 4th starter to join Fausto Carmona, Justin Masterson and Mitch Talbot in the rotation. Bonderman has played in the AL Central his whole career, so he is quite familiar with the power houses in the divison, the Twins, Chi Sox, and his ex-team the Tigers. Look for the Tribe to make a move on this free-agent.
