Bucs Bag Bedard

Reports broke late last night that the Pirates had released LHP Erik Bedard. This morning the team made it official. After starting the season off well, Bedard had become very inconsistent. On the year his number were down (up? They got worse.) to a 5.01 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.

At this time it the plans for the rotation are still unknown. Rosters expand on Thursday so several pitchers could be brought up. The most obvious choice is to start Kevin Correia on a regular basis again, but it’s very possible that Jeff Locke could be chosen for the role.

SS Chase d”Arnaud has been called up to fill the roster spot for now.
