Jeremy Bonderman has agreed to a minor league deal with the Mariners, with an invitation to spring training, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The Washington native is coming off of elbow reconstruction surgery.
Bonderman fielded calls from a dozen clubs this offseason with the Tigers and Nationals also showing serious interest. The right-hander dropped 35 pounds from his frame and is set to start throwing again in January. For his career, Bonderman owns a 4.89 ERA with 7.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 across eight seasons with Detroit.
