    Mariners Sign Jeremy Bonderman to Minor League Deal

    Jeremy Bonderman has agreed to a minor league deal with the Seattle 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.

    Same here. There is no reason to trade him. Montero will be the primary catcher, and Morales is the primary dh. Smoak has the job at 1B to lose. If he comes out of spring training and sucks you send his *** to Tacoma. Montero will probably play 140 to 150 games, and catch 100 of them. Jaso will catch the rest. Morales will play 1B the 40 to 50 games that Montero DH's, or he may have some off days. If Zunino happens to get called up he will play some and get his feet wet but I don't see him coming up until next season and Jaso will be gone. Then Z is the C, and Montero dh's. If Smoak is good you keep him at 1B. If he sucks you bring back Morales and let Smoak walk or you makes trades accordingly next off season. We need to find some OF bats and a innings eater for the rotation. Saw we just signed Bonderman. He could be ok if he is healthy.

    I think Jaso at least needs to start against righties. I dont want him riding the pine while Smoak is out there.
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    Jaso HAS to be in the lineup whenever a RHP is on the mound

    I am fine with Jaso not playing if it is in favor of Morales and Montero. If Smoak comes out and hits like we all think he can then those three are going to produce a ton of offense. If he doesnt, then I agree, we need more Jaso. Jaso won't be sitting for LOlivo, so as long as Smoak pulls his weight, Jaso won't play all that much. He will get at bats. You have that ph for RHP off the bench, he was clutch last year in that role. Montero and Morales are bats that should play everyday and Smoak has the potential and I think deserves a chance to prove it with the fences in and better protection in our lineup. I support our kids and think Smoak deserves a little slack. I know most in here seem to be ready to ship him, Ackley, and Montero off, but I am not that guy. I love what we got in our infield and if we can get some good OF bats, I think we can win 85 to 90 games.

    Thing is, Jaso hit lefties fine last season. He should get a shot at a full season, not just being played in favor of match ups. Im too lazy to post his stats, but he did hold his own against lefties. #playjaso

    I don't see him getting much better tho.

    Plus the point was that he was ok against lefties last year, and that's not the case.

    Eh, whatever. If he can hit like .230 off of lefties you won't hear a peep out of me.

    You won't hear a peep from me...you'll hear me calling for Wedge's job. In no way shape or form should it be acceptable for him to play if he struggles against lefties. You're being a homer, Mick.
