ERIK BEDARD RUMORS & GOSSIP
Erik Bedard has been bumped from the Houston Astros starting rotation.
Bedard, 34, has made 25 appearances with the Astros this season – including 23 starts.
In his last two outings Bedard had failed to pitch out of the fifth inning. While Bedard’s ERA and WHIP (4.48 ERA, 1.49 WHIP) are nearly the same as they were two months ago the Astros could not help but notice...
Astros pitcher Erik Bedard just had an outing where he didn’t allow a hit, but he’s off to the showers with the game still in doubt. He departed after 6 1/3 hitless innings in a tie ballgame.
Also notable: Bedard actually allowed three runs and ended up taking the loss.
So here’s his final, wacky line: 6 1/3 IP, 0 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 5 BB, 10 K, L
At first when I saw that Bedard...
Thanks for the help, pals.
You couldn't blame Erik Bedard if that was his sarcastic greeting to his teammates on Saturday night. The Astros starter went 6 1/3 innings against the Mariners and gave up zero hits. But he was charged with three runs and took the loss in Houston's 4-2 defeat .
Bedard struck out 10 and walked five, and it was walks plus some shaky work behind...

With Erik Bedard out of the rotation, the Pirates have several days to figure out how they plan on moving forward. The club has an off day on Thursday before opening up a three-game set in Milwaukee on Friday. Bedard’s spot in the rotation doesn’t come up until Saturday, which is also September 1st when the Pirates can expand the rosters.

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...
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.

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.

Erik Bedard finally got some run support and was able to put it to good use, as the Bucs knocked off the Braves in a solid win on Saturday night in Atlanta.
Bedard only lasted five because of a high pitch count, but that was enough for him to pick up his first Bucco win and strike out nine. He allowed one run, but–similar to A.J. Burnett last night–it is SO nice to see Pirates...
