M's Bedard to miss next start because of injury
ARLINGTON, Texas - Mariners left-hander Erik Bedard will likely miss his next scheduled start Saturday night in Boston. Seattle manager Don Wakamatsu said Thursday that Bedard is a probable scratch because of a tight right hamstring.
Wakamatsu said he should be able to make a decision on Friday.
Bedard threw a season-high 110 pitches in a season-low 4 2-3 innings Sunday at Minnesota.
He is 2-1 with a 2.53 ERA. Wakamatsu said the Mariners would likely fill his spot in the rotation from the current staff. Left-hander Garrett Olson, who has a 2.57 ERA, is among the possibilities.
