"I felt a little tweak," he said. "I pitched to the next two batters and I was like, 'No, I don't think this is a good idea to go back out. I think I'll be fine."

Bedard allowed two runs on three hits and two walks in one inning Friday. He struck out one. Bedard is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in three spring outings (two starts).

Veteran lefty Erik Bedard confident he will pitch in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) With the start of spring training getting closer and closer, veteran pitcher Erik Bedard remains a free agent. Still, the 35-year-old Bedard feels confident he will get an opportunity to pitch in 2015, according to the Toronto Sun.

"I'm confident I'll pitch this year," Bedard said. "I don't know how much mileage I have left. You could think you have 2,000 miles left on your arm and one pitch later, you're done. When I had Tommy John (surgery at age 23), I threw one pitch and blew out my elbow. The way I pitched last year, I think I still have it."

Bedard was released by the Rays in July last season after going 4-6 with a 4.76 ERA in 17 appearances (15 starts).

"I thought I pitched pretty good," Bedard said. "I had one really rough outing, my last one. I had a month where I had a 0.60 ERA. My fastball's not as fast as it used to be, but I still have good control."

Erik Bedard ready to start Sunday -- just in case


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) 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.

Bedard got hammered last Thursday by the Tigers, giving up six earned runs in two innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.


Erik Bedard surrenders three runs in win vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Rays pitcher Erik Bedard earned a win Saturday, giving up three earned runs on five hits in seven-plus innings while striking out seven and walking none in his team's 5-4 victory over the Orioles.

Bedard (4-5) pitched five scoreless innings before surrendering a solo home run in the sixth, but that's all the damage the Orioles could muster heading into the eighth. The Rays starter gave up a leadoff single in the eighth inning before surrendering his second home run of the game and being removed. Bedard owns a 4.21 ERA and 64:27 K:BB ratio in 72 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Tigers Thursday.


Erik Bedard could be making last start for Rays


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The left-hander struck out eight and walked one in 103 pitches, 66 for strikes. His ERA improved from 4.08 to 3.61 on the season. Over his last two starts covering 10 2/3 innings, Bedard has allowed three earned runs.

Following the home win, Bedard will look to keep things rolling Wednesday at home against St. Louis.

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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

Erik Bedard start moved up to Sunday


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.

Bedard gave up eight runs on 13 hits in just four innings Monday against the Blue Jays. He had yielded just three earned runs, however, in his previous five starts combined.


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
(5/21/2014) Rays pitcher Erik Bedard surrendered only one hit Wednesday, but he also gave up three runs (one earned) in 5 1/3 innings while striking out six and walking three to take a loss in his team's 3-2 loss to the A's.

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.
