Bonderman scratched with sore muscle in right side


TORONTO (AP) -Detroit right-hander Jeremy Bonderman has been scratched from Saturday's start against the Toronto Blue Jays because of a sore muscle in his right side.

He will be replaced by right-hander Alfredo Figaro.

Bonderman is 7-9 with a 5.27 ERA in 24 games this season, including 23 starts. His injury is not linked to the condition that caused a blood clot in his pitching arm in 2008, leading to surgery and limiting him to just 20 appearances in 2008 and 2009.

Figaro was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Aug. 20, his second stint with Detroit this season. He's 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA in three relief appearances. He went 10-6 with a 4.14 ERA in 23 starts at Triple-A, and pitched in five games for the Tigers in 2009, making three starts.
