Bonderman not returning to Tigers

Jeremy Bonderman Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski told Tom Gage of the Detroit News that the team is not signing Jeremy Bonderman (via Twitter ).

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.

Washington?  Are you kidding?  Do you think the Yankees aren't talking to his agent?  DUH!  This guy wants to win.  Washington does not afford that possibility.

we'll take him in toronto ...perfect. with our new and improved pen just think he could give us 5innings of 7 hit ball, keep it down to 2-3 runs, and we win 5-4. with bonderman i think we might even contend for the wild card!!!

67 -77 with a 4.89 ERA. 10 Million Dollars?  How much does a winning pitcher cost?

If Andy Pettitte doesn't sign then I can surely see the Yankees or Mets giving him a $10M contract

Dear Mr. Antonetti,
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I know what you are thinking, Jeremy Bonderman is cheap and his arm is still attached to his body.  We could throw him out there for half a season and if he pitches well, we could trade him for a single A prospect that will probably never make the majors. 
LMAO  That was a great post my friend, 5 stars for you.   On a serious note though, don't be surprised if Bonderman ends up in Cleveland... he has the potential to be mediocre.... lol

This is hillarious.  I'm as thrilled to be rid of him as you are afraid of signing him.

I'm thinking he is heading to the Yankees...They can get him for cheep and would fit in perfectly as the 4th or 5th starter. All Bonderman needs to do is sign with a contender and give them 6 to 7 good innings. He is not going to strike guys out anymore, so as a 5th starter on the Yankees could be a good thing for him, and they also need a pitcher or 2 from last I heard.
