|Erik Bedard pitches six innings for first time this year|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) Astros pitcher Erik Bedard pitched six innings for the first time this season, allowing two earned runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out three for his first quality start of the year. Bedard wound up with a no-decision after the game went into extra innings.
Bedard takes a 6.00 ERA into next weekend's start against the Athletics.
|Astros flip-flop rotation order|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) The Astros have tweaked their upcoming rotation slightly as they have flip-flopped Jordan Lyles and Erik Bedard, MLB.com reports.
Bedard, originally expected to start Friday, will start Saturday in Pittsburgh. Lyles was expected to go Saturday originally but will move up to pitch Friday.
|Erik Bedard pitches well in no-decision|
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/11/13) Astros starter Erik Bedard did not factor in the decision Saturday against the Rangers. Bedard, who made his sixth start, allowed two runs on four hits over five innings -- his longest outing of the year -- including a solo home run off the bat of Adrian Beltre in the second.
Bedard was pulled after surrendering a leadoff single to Lance Berkman in the sixth but was charged with the run after Berkman came home to score on a two-run bomb off the bat of Nelson Cruz.
The left-hander finished with a season-high seven strikeouts and one walk while earning a no-decision. Bedard is slated to face the Pirates Friday at Pittsburgh.
|Erik Bedard not worth your time|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/8/13) As a familiar name with All-Star pedigree, Astros starter Erik Bedard's name is always going to cause Fantasy owners' ears to perk up. The team announced Wednesday Bedard will return to the rotation, after briefly being moved to the bullpen.
But that news does not mean Fantasy owners should pay attention.
Bedard has done little to be worthy of attention in Fantasy formats, posting a 7.36 ERA and 1.82 WHIP, while failing to last longer than four innings in any of his five starts. With a bad team behind him, Bedard is unlikely to prove helpful in any way for Fantasy owners. Continue to ignore Bedard in all formats moving forward.
|Erik Bedard tabbed to start Saturday|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/8/13) Astros manager Bo Porter announced Wednesday that pitcher Erik Bedard, who was moved to the bullpen earlier this week, will start Saturday's game against the Rangers, according to multiple reports.
Bedard has made five starts and two relief appearances for the Astros this season, going 0-2 with a 7.36 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and 24 strikeouts in 22 innings.
|Erik Bedard signed a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Pirates last season and got off to a productive start. He went 4-6 with a 3.59 ERA in his first 12 outings and struck out 61 in 62 2/3 innings pitched. Just when it seemed like the left-hander was back to being a reliable option in Fantasy, his campaign took a drastic turn. Bedard would go 3-8 with a 6.43 ERA in his next 12 starts and was released by Pittsburgh in late August. The 33-year-old has shown flashes of being a viable contributor in Fantasy over the last two seasons and signed a minor-league deal with the Astros this offseason. Houston would like to have a lefty in its rotation by the time opening day rolls around, so keep an eye on how he does during the spring. Even if Bedard breaks camp with the big club, however, pitching in the tough American League West will not bode well for his Fantasy value. Take a wait-and-see approach through spring training. If he makes the rotation, he's more of a later-round pick in AL-only leagues. (Updated 1/23/13)|
