Jeremy Bonderman was waiting to renew acquaintances with the organization that first brought him to the big leagues.
The Tigers will purchase Bonderman's contract from Triple-A Toledo prior to tomorrow's contest against the Indians. Bonderman was in the major leagues this season with Seattle before he was designated for assignment after going 1-3 with a 4.93 ERA.
After signing with the Tigers, he allowed 0 earned runs in 9 2/3 innings with Toledo, all in relief. Bonderman will pitch in long relief with the Tigers. To make room for the right hander, Evan Reed was sent down.
Bonderman's lasting memory was his gem in Game 4 of the 2006 ALDS when he knocked the Yankees out of the post season with 8 1/3 innings of 2-run ball.
