On the verge of joining the Mariners’ rotation before suffering a setback last week, Erik Bedard said last night that he’s “probably not” going to pitch this season.
Bedard underwent an MRI exam and the team hasn’t released any details of the results yet, but Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reports that he’s met with surgeon Dr. James Andrews and “the news can’t have been great.”
He hasn’t faced big-league hitters since July 25, 2009 and had shoulder surgery in mid-August, re-signing with the Mariners for a one-year, $1.5 million contract with an $8 million mutual option for 2011. He was initially hoping to return as soon as May, but the oft-injured southpaw had various setbacks along the way and may now be headed for more surgery.
