DETROIT (AP) - Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Jeremy Bonderman says he wants another shot at playing in the major leagues.

The 29-year-old Bonderman had elbow-ligament replacement surgery Tuesday to help him attempt to make a comeback next spring.

He hasn't pitched since 2010 when he was 8-10 and had a 5.53 ERA over 29 starts. His career record is 67-77 with a 4.89 ERA in 193 starts over eight seasons with the Tigers. The right-hander was 14-8 in 2006 and had a 3.10 ERA in three postseason starts to help Detroit reach the World Series for the first time since 1984.

A blood clot in his right shoulder stunted his career in 2008 after he had a winning record in three straight seasons.
