|Rays release Erik Bedard, Juan Carlos Oviedo |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/3/14) The Rays have released pitchers Erik Bedard and Juan Carlos Oviedo.
Bedard and Oviedo were designated for assignment in late July, and it's possible wanted to test free agency rather than pitch in the minors with the Rays. Bedard owns a 4.76 ERA and 64:29 K:BB ratio in 75 2/3 innings. Oviedo owns a 3.69 ERA and 26:16 K:BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings.

(7/28/14) Struggling veteran starter Erik Bedard has been designated for assignment by the Rays.
Bedard lost his starting spot after yielding six earned runs on eight hits in two innings on July 3. His ERA has soared from 2.63 to 4.76 since May 21. He has made a habit in recent years out of showing promise with a new team before fading.
|Erik Bedard ready to start Sunday -- just in case |

(7/12/14) David Price is hoping to start for the Rays Sunday despite an illness, but the team has a backup plan just in case, according to MLB.com.
If Price has to be scratched for the second day in a row, the Rays have Erik Bedard ready to step in and start in his place. Bedard last pitched July 3, when he lasted just two innings and threw 53 pitches in a start against the Tigers. He was moved to the bullpen following that start.

(7/7/14) The Rays moved pitcher Erik Bedard to the bullpen to clear a rotation spot for Jeremy Hellickson, who's returning from an elbow injury, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Bedard went 4-6 with a 4.82 ERA in 16 games, including 15 starts.
Bedard got hammered last Thursday by the Tigers, giving up six earned runs in two innings.
|Erik Bedard lasts just two innings in loss Thursday |

(7/3/14) Rays pitcher Erik Bedard was hammered in Thursday's loss, giving up six earned runs on eight hits and two walks in just two innings in his team's 8-1 defeat against the Tigers.
Bedard (4-6) surrendered two two-run home runs in the first inning before recording an out and served up a solo home run before escaping the inning. He then gave up another run in the second inning and didn't come out for the third. With the ugly outing, Bedard owns a 4.82 ERA and 64:29 K:BB ratio in 74 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to make his last start of the first half Tuesday.
|At age 34 and on the verge of free agency, Erik Bedard spent all of 2013 with a team that lost 111 games, which goes to show how he's regarded these days. Well, why would a contender want a pitcher with a 4.78 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over the last two years? It's almost like, with all the injuries he suffered during his three-plus years in Seattle, he forgot how to pitch. He doesn't even know how to extend himself anymore, going fewer than six innings in 15 of his 26 starts. His stuff hasn't completely abandoned him, as evidenced by his above-average strikeout rate, but it doesn't count for much on its own. Bedard did find a taker this offseason in the Rays -- a team that has no choice but to shop the bargain bin -- but with up-and-comers Jake Odorizzi, Alex Colome and Enny Romero already ahead of him on the organizational depth chart, he's a long shot for a starting role. He's not worth your time even in AL-only leagues.
