Just when it looked like Erik Bedard was ready to rejoin the Mariners’ rotation the oft-injured left-hander has suffered yet another setback.
Initially expected to come off the disabled list last week, those plans were canceled and Bedard was then scheduled for a bullpen session over the weekend. Once those were ruled out too he was then slated to simply play catch yesterday, but even that proved too much for Bedard’s surgically repaired shoulder.
He felt discomfort while throwing off flat ground and Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reports that Bedard will be examined next week by the Mariners’ team doctor, with an MRI exam and/or CATscan likely on the docket. In other words, Bedard might be back to square one. He hasn’t faced big-league hitters since July 25, 2009.
