Gage says that means Bonderman is about to sign somewhere else. The team had said it was open to re-signing the 28-year-old right-hander.
Bonderman was 8-10 last season with a 5.53 ERA in 29 starts for the Tigers. He's 67-77 with a 4.89 ERA in 193 career starts. He's pitched for Detroit since he came up as a 20-year-old rookie in 2003.
This is nothing but speculation, but Washington would make sense as a landing spot for Bonderman.
UPDATE: The Indians are in talks with Bonderman, MLB.com's Jordan Bastrain writes . The Indians appear to be offering a major-league contract and offering him a chance to compete for a spot in the rotation.
