Jeremy Bonderman is likely unavailable in the Tigers bullpen for Saturday's game against the Royals due to discomfort in his thumb.

Bonderman's transition to the bullpen with the Tigers hasn't gone as well as they would've liked, as he's posted a 5.28 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 14/10 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings. If he can't prove his health and improve the results in the final two weeks of the season, he's unlikely to be included on the postseason roster.

Tigers recalled RHP Jeremy Bonderman from Triple-A Toledo.

Bonderman was just optioned on Saturday, but will be added as bullpen depth. He returns to a 4.27 ERA over 16 relief appearances this season.

Tigers optioned RHP Jeremy Bonderman to Triple-A Toledo.

Bonderman has a 4.27 ERA over 16 relief appearances this season and will be back up next month. The Tigers also optioned Luke Putkonen, and recalled Phil Coke and Hernan Perez in corresponding moves.

Tigers recalled RHP Jeremy Bonderman from Triple-A Toledo.

Bonderman was released by the Mariners last month and hasn't allowed a run over seven appearances with the Tigers' Triple-A affiliate. The 30-year-old is expected to serve in a long relief role.

Jeremy Bonderman is attempting to transition to being a relief pitcher.

If the early results are any indication, he may just be onto something. Through his first five appearances with Triple-A Toledo, Bonderman is unscored upon, allowing just one hit in his five innings of work while striking out three. He should see time in the Tigers' bullpen at some point this season.

Tigers signed RHP Jeremy Bonderman to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Toledo.

Bonderman, of course, spent the first eight years of his career with the Tigers. The veteran right-hander was cut loose by the Mariners last week after posting a 4.93 ERA in seven starts. He's obviously a shell of his former self but isn't a bad guy to have around for depth purposes.

Jeremy Bonderman has elected to become a free agent.

Bonderman cleared waivers after being designated for assignment earlier this week, but he chose free agency over accepting a minor league assignment. The 30-year-old right-hander posted a 4.93 ERA in seven starts with the Mariners and should latch on elsewhere fairly quickly, though chances are he'll have to serve as minor league depth.

Mariners designated RHP Jeremy Bonderman for assignment.

Bonderman was shelled for six earned runs over five innings Saturday in a loss to the Reds, falling to 1-3 on the season with a 4.93 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. The 30-year-old right-hander seems doubtful to draw much interest on waivers. Seattle will have to call up a new starter for Thursday and it certainly could be Erasmo Ramirez.

Jeremy Bonderman was hammered for six earned runs in five innings Saturday in a loss to the Reds.

The right-hander has now been blown up in back-to-back starts. He has a 4.93 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 38 1/3 total innings this season and probably won't be able to turn things around next week when he faces the Red Sox.

Jeremy Bonderman lasted just 3 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

He allowed four runs on six hits and had two walks before being pulled at 62 pitches. Bonderman had been surprisingly effective over his last three outings, but has just a 4.05 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He'll remain a shaky fantasy option in his next start Saturday against the Reds.

Jeremy Bonderman allowed just two runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Athletics.

Bonderman threw five scoreless innings before giving up two runs in the sixth. He finished with three walks, two strikeouts, and was removed at 97 pitches. Bonderman now has a 3.30 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over five starts (30 innings) this season.

Despite striking out no one, Jeremy Bonderman gave up just one run over six innings Tuesday against the Angels.

Bonderman allowed six hits, walked three and hit a batter, but he had Josh Hamilton hitting double-play balls to bail him out whenever things got tough. Just 52 of Bonderman's 92 pitches were strikes tonight, and that's not going to fly against most lineups.

Jeremy Bonderman shut out the Astros for eight innings in a no-decision on Wednesday.

The Mariners finally gave Bonderman a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the eighth, only to quickly blow it in the ninth. After getting lit up in his Seattle debut, Bonderman has allowed one run in 14 innings in his last two starts. We did recommend using him in AL-only leagues tonight, but that was just because of the matchup. He's not a great bet to have any long-term value.

Jeremy Bonderman held the Yankees to one run and three hits over six innings Friday to earn his first big-league victory since Sept. 8, 2010.

Bonderman was roughed up Sunday in his return to the majors, but he did a nice job in this one, getting 10 outs on the ground along with his two strikeouts. Since his next outing will be a Safeco start against the Astros, AL-only leaguers could consider trying him for a week. He doesn't figure to have any long-term value, but that's a nice matchup.
