|Erik Bedard surrenders three runs in spring debut |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(2/28/14) Rays pitcher Erik Bedard surrendered three earned runs on three hits and two walks in one inning while striking out one in his spring debut as the Rays fell to the Orioles Friday, 4-2.
"It's the first game, I was trying to get my arm in shape and trying to throw strikes," Bedard told MLB.com. "... My changeup was pretty good. I threw a lot of strikes with it and I was pretty confident with it. So that was the positive of the outing."
Bedard is competing for a spot in the rotation but will need to show improvement in successive starts to have a chance at landing the starting job. He went 4-12 with a 4.59 ERA and 138:75 K:BB ratio in 151 innings with the Astros last season.

(2/14/14) Rays pitcher Erik Bedard will compete for the team's fifth rotation spot, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
General manager Andrew Friedman said Bedard could also be considered for a role in the bullpen. The lefty agreed with the club Friday, and posted a 4.59 ERA in 151 innings last season.

(2/14/14) Free-agent pitcher Erik Bedard has agreed to sign with the Rays, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
The 34-year-old spent last year in Houston. He posted a 4.59 ERA over 151 innings with the club. Injuries have been a big part of Bedard's career, though he's managed to start at least 24 games in each of the past three seasons. He'll likely provide starting pitching depth, though does have experience out of the bullpen.

(2/12/14) The Rays are seeking to add a veteran starter soon and could be looking at Erik Bedard, per SB Nation. Free agent starters such as Ervin Santana and Ubaldo Jimenez might be deemed too expansive for the generally frugal Rays.
The 34-year-old Bedard has enjoyed only flashes of success since his fine 2006 and 2007 seasons with Baltimore. Injuries have limited his time on the mound and resulted in inconsistency.
Bedard was 4-12 with a 4.59 ERA in 2013 with Houston.
|Erik Bedard becomes free agent |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(11/2/13) Starting pitcher Erik Bedard officially filed for free agency from the Houston Astros Thursday, MLB.com reports. He did not have a very good season with Houston.
Bedard was healthy enough to pitch 151 innings, his highest amount since 2007. That said, he had a 4.59 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP.
|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.
