Jeremy Bonderman Looking for a Team for 2013

Jeremy Bonderman was never great.  He was a first-round draft pick, but he never lived up to any first-round hype.  Now, after being out of baseball for the past two years, Bonderman is looking for a chance to pitch again.  He missed the 2012 season thanks to a torn UCL and Tommy John surgery.

Bonderman spoke with Buster Olney of ESPN ($ - Insider piece) and expressed interest in at least getting another shot.  He is looking for a minor league deal and an offer to pitch at big league camp during spring training.

Bonderman missed the entire 2011 season because he was a free agent that couldn't find a team.  His contract with the Detroit Tigers ended after a season in which he posted a 5.53 ERA.  Overall, Bonderman racked up a 4.89 ERA in eight seasons with the Tigers.  He lost more games than he won, and he never developed into a really effective pitcher.  He did make 193 starts in those eight seasons.

Whether or not Bonderman can be successful in the Majors after his injury is yet to be seen.  He struggled while healthy, so not many teams may be interested in him coming off Tommy John surgery.
