Erik Bedard Probably Not Pitching in 2010

The Seattle Mariners are saying that Erik Bedard probably won’t be pitching this year, after an MRI showed inflammation in his surgically repaired shoulder.

Bedard hasn’t pitched since almost a year (last July 25th); he had surgery on his torn labrum last August. He signed a one year deal for $1.75MM with the Mariners, with the knowledge he wouldn’t be ready for the start of the season. In the Spring, they were expecting him by the end of May; his rehab was slow, but he began his rehab assignment last month. He started to feel shoulder pain shortly after his rehab starts began.
