Bonderman visits with Tigers in Seattle
SEATTLE -- Jeremy Bonderman seemingly isn't on the comeback trail, but he came back to visit his former teammates Wednesday morning with a stop at Safeco Field. He made the three-hour trip from his home in Pasco, Wash., to see the club for which he pitched eight seasons before becoming a free agent over the winter.

Bonderman's remarks to reporters were limited. He said he's feeling "great," and he's planning to see the team in Detroit in a few weeks. That would seem to rule out any idea that the unsigned right-hander is pitching again anytime soon.

For many Tigers, it was the first time seeing Bonderman since last October, when he was still in a Detroit uniform. He openly held out hope at the time that he could return, but the Tigers made it clear they planned on going in a different direction with their rotation. Bonderman had talks with other teams, but never signed over the winter.
