Bonderman scratched for Saturday

Jeremy Bonderman will still pitch on Saturday, but he’ll do so in a simulated game on the back fields rather than in the Tigers’ game against the Mets at Joker Marchant Stadium. He still has some lingering soreness in his shoulder, manager Jim Leyland said, so they’re going to put him in a more controlled setting for his first spring outing — 15 pitches, sit down, then 15 more pitches for a total of 30, the same pitch count he would’ve had in an actual game.

Jonathan Kibler will make the start Saturday in Bonderman’s place.

Lingering soreness, why does that scare the heck out of me?

I hope it’s nothing serious because Bondo having a strong and healthy year would be huge for the club. Definitely makes it more important not to trade Miner or Nate before the season begins.
