Bonderman's rehab outing for Toledo

We’ll wait and see what the reports say, but the numbers showed a decent night for Jeremy Bonderman that turned into a rough ending in his rehab start for Triple-A Toledo Thursday at Gwinnett. He took a two-hit shutout and a duel with Braves uber-prospect Tommy Hanson into the sixth before Gwinnett put up a five-spot on Bonderman in the sixth with three doubles, a single, a walk and a home run.

The totals: Bonderman gave up five runs on seven hits, five of them for extra bases, over six innings with two walks and four strikeouts. He threw 62 of his 98 pitches for strikes. Again, we’ll wait and see, especially on his velocity, but one would think he might need some time.

I don’t see any reason to rush him back. He’s got time for two more rehab starts before we begin that tough stretch the first week of June. I’d like to have him back ready to pitch, not as an injury related tryout, because the pen will be taxed enough as it is. I guess we’ll know more about the need after Galarraga’s start tomorrow. And Dontrelle’s on Sunday.
