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.

He's scheduled to make his last start of the first half Tuesday.

Erik Bedard could be making last start for Rays


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) With Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) nearing the end of his minor-league rehab, Erik Bedard could be nearing the end of his time with the Rays, reports the Tampa Tribune. Bedard enters Sunday's start against the Astros having failed to pitch five innings in four of his past five outings. 

The paper said Bedard is not throwing his curveball as often as he did early this season. "I still like his curveball a lot," manager Joe Maddon said. "If he’s able to get that pitch over the plate, that permits him to pitch more deeply in games, period."


Erik Bedard chased early yet again in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Rays pitcher Erik Bedard's struggles going deep into games continued Tuesday, in a 7-5 loss to the Orioles.

Bedard was tagged for five runs in three innings of work, and though he settled down eventually, that was enough to cost him the game. He was tagged for those five runs on four hits and a pair of walks, and was pulled after throwing 92 pitches in the loss.

Bedard fell to 3-5 with the loss, and has now failed to pitch at least five innings in four of his last five starts. He has a 4.33 ERA heading into his next outing, set for Sunday against the Astros. 


Erik Bedard pulled after four in no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Rays lefty Erik Bedard didn't stick around long enough to snag a win Wednesday night against the Cardinals. He was removed after the fourth inning.

He wasn't terrible - just ineffective. He gave up three runs on eight hits in four innings with one walk and four strikeouts.

Bedard has proven inconsistent recently. Aside from throwing six shutout innings against the Mariners, he has yielded 13 earned runs in 12 2/3 innings pitched over a four-start stretch. He will seek to right himself early next week against Baltimore.

Manager: Erik Bedard stuff is same despite struggles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) The recent struggles of Rays left-hander Erik Bedard doesn't have Joe Maddon worried - at least not publicly. Bedard has yielded 10 earned runs on 17 hits in his last 8 2/3 innings covering two starts.

"He's not really throwing a whole lot differently," Maddon told the Tampa Bay Times. "I see very little difference in his stuff and how he's going about his business."

Bedard had given up just three earned runs in his previous five starts combined. His two poor outings raised his earned run average from 2.63 to 4.08. Those starts came against Toronto and Boston, both of which were on hot streaks when he faced them.

Bedard has dropped three consecutive decisions. He owns a 4.27 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP over 46 1/3 innings pitched. He will make his next start Friday at home against Seattle.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Fresh off his first pounding after a strong start to the season, Rays left-hander Erik Bedard will take the hill Sunday in Boston. He had been scheduled for Monday in Miami.

Erik Bedard rocked in loss vs. Blue Jays Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Rays pitcher Erik Bedard was hit with a loss after giving up eight runs (seven earned) on 12 hits in four-plus innings while striking out two in his team's 10-5 loss to the Blue Jays Monday.

Bedard (2-3) put together a nice run of performances in last five starts, but it all came crashing down Monday, when he gave up hits to the first five batters in the first inning, surrendered back-to-back home runs to open the fourth inning and gave up three straight hits to start the fifth before being removed.

Bedard saw his ERA jump more than a full point with the ugly line, leaving him with a 3.89 ERA and 30:18 K:BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox Sunday.


Erik Bedard gives up one hit in loss Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bedard (2-2) has given up one hit in two of his last three starts, but he continues to have issues with his control. He's been able to work around the high number of walks this season while posting a 2.63 ERA and 28:18 K:BB ratio in 37 2/3 innings. Bedard could be shuffled out of the rotation with Alex Cobb due to return Thursday; if not, he'll face the Blue Jays next week.


One of three Rays starters on brink of losing rotation spot


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Joe Maddon has yet to decide which pitcher will lose his spot in the rotation upon the return of Alex Cobb from an oblique strain. Cobb is set to make his lone rehab start Saturday night. That would line him up to start with the Rays on Thursday.

It also lines him up to replace Cesar Ramos. If Ramos performs poorly Saturday night against the Angels, he could be the odd man out. But Erik Bedard and Jake Odorizzi are also candidates.

"We honestly have not decided," Maddon told the Tampa Bay Times. "That's open for debate. It's a conversation. Quite frankly, they've all pitched well."

Ramos did not pitch well in his last start. He allowed five runs on 11 hits in 6 2/3 innings Monday night in Seattle. Bedard has been strong since joining the rotation and Odorizzi has not allowed an earned run in his last two outings combined.


Erik Bedard let down by defense, bullpen


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Rays starting pitcher Erik Bedard didn't get much help despite tossing five-plus solid innings Thursday, in a 6-5 loss to the Angels.

Bedard fell one out short of a quality start, and nearly finished of six shutout innings, if not for a defensive miscue with two outs in the sixth inning. He was pulled after an error allowed one run to score, with one more unearned run coming around to score against him after a reliever took over.

Bedard had two runs score in his 5 2/3 innings of work, though neither was earned. He allowed four hits and one walk while striking out five batters on just 86 pitches. He took a no-decision as the bullpen blew his chance for a third win.

Bedard remains 2-1 with a 2.78 ERA in 32 1/3 innings of work heading into his next start, set for Wednesday against the A's. 


Erik Bedard ready for Thursday start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Rays pitcher Erik Bedard is ready for his Thursday start against the Angels, according to the Tampa Bay Times. 

Bedard has been dealing with some soreness in his left pectoral muscle, but was able to recover in time for the start. The club was set to replace Bedard with Enny Romero, but sent Romero back to the minors once Bedard said he was good to go. Through six games, Bedard has posted a 3.38 ERA.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rays considering adding pitcher after taxing bullpen


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) The Rays are considering adding a pitcher prior to Sunday's game against the Yankees, according to the Tampa Tribune.

The bullpen has seen a lot of action during the week. Tampa Bay went 14 innings Friday, and starter Jake Odorizzi lasted just four innings Saturday. With Erik Bedard on the mound Sunday, there's a chance for another short outing. The further Bedard has pitched in a game this season is five innings. The team could use the extra help, and will consider adding someone before the game. 


Bullpen melts down in no-decision for Erik Bedard


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Rays starting pitcher Erik Bedard pitched well Tuesday, but wasn't particularly efficient in a 7-4 loss to the Red Sox.  

Bedard limited the Red Sox to just one run in five innings of work, but racked up a high pitch count that forced him out early. He allowed four hits and three walks while striking out four in the no-decision.

This was the deepest Bedard has gone in his three starts, and he now has a 5.52 ERA in 14 2/3 innings. He is 0-1 heading into his next outing, scheduled for Sunday against the Yankees.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
