Best to Jeremy Bonderman's family. From ESPN:

Detroit Tigers: Pitcher Jeremy Bonderman is expected to rejoin the team Friday in Anaheim, Calif., after attending to his brother John, who remained in serious condition at a Seattle hospital on Thursday, two days after surgery to remove a strep infection in his right arm.

The Detroit Free Press reported the story in Friday's editions.

Jeremy Bonderman is expected to throw in a bullpen session Friday, manager Alan Trammell told the newspaper, and might pitch in a four-game series against Kansas City that starts Monday.

According to a report, John Bonderman contracted the infection during a football game a week ago Friday and was hospitalized Tuesday. He is a senior linebacker at Pasco High School. The infection did not respond to antibiotics.

"The next step is to lose the arm, and that's what we're worried about right now," Jeremy Bonderman's younger brother Jeff was quoted as saying in the Tri-City (Wash.) Herald.

Infections can be nasty. Get your booster shots! See doctors!
