Bonderman Considering Retirement

Jeremy Bonderman is seriously considering retiring at age 28 after the season, reports Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.  Bonderman will be a free agent, and he could hang up the spikes if he doesn't get an acceptable offer to return to the Tigers or sign with a team somewhat near his Pasco, Washington home.

Bonderman says he's saved a lot of money, so he has the ability to retire.  He's earned over $40MM in his career, most of it coming from a four-year deal signed in '06.  Bonderman should find interest if he decides to continue pitching.  He's shown good health, decent peripherals, and flashes of his former velocity this year.
