Bonderman was originally drafted out of high school (as a junior!) by Oakland #26 overall, which pissed off GM Billy Beane something awful in a famous scene described in the oft-misunderstood Moneyball. He must have really despised the pick because he sent Jeremy packing in a deal about as soon as he could the following year--the three-way deal with the Yankees and Tigers that sent Jeff Weaver to New York, Ted Lilly and others to Oakland, and Bonderman (as a PTBNL) and Carlos Pena to Detroit.
Bondo" headed to the Majors very, very early in his young career--he was all of 20 when he made his debut in 2003, going 6-19, which was actually tied for SECOND in wins for the almost-historically awful 2003 squad that won just 43 games. Things generally improved for him the next four seasons, though, and he totaled double-digit victories (always 11 or 14, oddly enough) as a solid member of the rotation, including the 2006 World Series team. Unfortunately, 2008 and 2009 were forgettable for Bonderman due to a blood clot issue and other injuries. He did return to a decent 8-10 record in 2010, but his limited effectiveness and projected price tag ended his tenure in Detroit.
Congratulations to Jeremy for his persistence paying off; may his second go-round in Motown be as eventful as his first, and more successful! Seriously, the bullpen could use the help!
