ERIK BEDARD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rays notes: Erik Bedard at peace with move to bullpen

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jeremy Hellickson's return to the Tampa Bay Rays' rotation Tuesday created a new reality for one pitcher: Left-hander Erik Bedard. Bedard was moved to the bullpen when Hellickson made his season debut in a victory over the Kansas City Royals at Tropicana Field. Bedard, who's 4-6 this season with a 4.82 ERA in 16 appearances (15 starts), became...

Tampa Bay Rays: Why Erik Bedard has been the biggest surprise

The Tampa Bay Rays have had very few good surprises throughout the course of the 2014 season. There have been plenty of things that have come as a shock for the team so far, but almost all of them have been detrimental. Nobody expected Matt Moore to need Tommy John surgery. Nobody expected David Price, Evan Longoria, and Wil Myers to all seriously underperform. Nobody expected Grant...

DraftKings – Let’s Get Bedard’ed In Here

There was a strange time in history that some may not be aware of. It was a time when Fergie wasn't a household name and giving her fans dreams of golden showers. It was a time they were all about having a live backing band instead of sampled beats. It was a time when they were earning critical acclaim for what I'll biasedly - which IS a word, autocorrect; check yo'...

Rays at Angels game preview

TV: Sun Sports Time: Pregame coverage begins at 9:30 p.m. The Tampa Bay Rays were forced to put Erik Bedard in their rotation last month after they lost two more starters to injuries, and it didn't look like the veteran left-hander would stay there very long following his first two turns. Bedard, though, has turned things around and will try to win three straight starts for the...

Notebook: Erik Bedard looking to find ways to win with Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Erik Bedard is trying to stay focused on the task at hand. That means winning and nothing else. That means avoiding concerns like pitching for his job, considering his future with the Tampa Bay Rays and placing too much pressure on himself to perform. "You always pitch to win," the left-hander said Wednesday. "I don't think of anything else...

Erik Bedard Walks the Plank

Erik Bedard is exactly the sort of pitcher a team signs to a one-year contract, and last December, the Pirates signed Bedard to a one-year contract worth $4.5 million. At the time, I’m guessing the Pirates figured they probably wouldn’t still have Bedard come September. He’d be an interesting wild card for a Pirates team with an outside shot, but more likely he’d either get...

The Break-Even Point of Erik Bedard

It was quite a surprise when the Pirates signed Erik Bedard before the Winter Meetings last December.  Bedard was a “name player” that had some pedigree to him, but his recent seasons had been injury-plagued.  That was the majority of the reason that the Pirates were able to swoop in and get him early for a 1 year/$4.5M deal. In a radio spot shortly after his signing, I joked...

Lincoln takes over for Bedard in the 2nd as Bedard leaves the game due to back spasms. — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) May 9, 2012   We all knew it was probably just a matter of time that Erik Bedard got hurt. Bedard getting hurt has become a pretty routine thing over the past few years. This isn’t the first time Bedard has suffered back spasms. In 2008, he was removed from...
