Rumors: Don’t Expect Yankees to Sign Jeremy Bonderman

Via Jack Curry of the YES Network:

The Yankees are still monitoring the very thin starting pitcher market, but don’t expect them to sign Jeremy Bonderman.

This seems like it is for the best. There are a lot of injury risk starters on the market this winter, Bonderman being one of them, but at least most of the others have decent upside if they’re healthy. Bonderman doesn’t seem to have that upside. He had a 5.53 ERA last year and has a career ERA+ of just 90. On top of that in eight seasons in the league has has managed to throw 200 innings or more just once. This guy is the definition of unfulfilled potential.

To me, if the Yankees wanted to sign this guy I’d much rather see them sign Kevin Millwood. Millwood and Bonderman probably have a similar upside with Millwood being much more likely to turn in a 200 inning season.

    Another no-move by Cashman. Some of the young arms in the Minors have more upside than Bonderman. Give them a chance before you waste roster space on this guy.
