Bedard scratched from Wednesday start

The Astros scratched left-hander Erik Bedard from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Orioles and will instead send rookie lefty Brett Oberholtzer to the mound.

Bedard, who’s on the trading block, hasn’t yet been dealt, though it remains a possibility. On Tuesday, the Astros scratched right-handed Bud Norris from his scheduled outing against the Orioles while working on possible trades.

As of 1 p.m. CT – two hours before the Trade Deadline – Norris had not been traded.

Sources told on Tuesday three teams were hard after Norris, including the Orioles, who are in contention in the American League East.

Bedard would have made his third start in Baltimore since he left the Orioles after 2007. He went 0-5 in five starts in July, but posted a respectable 3.86 ERA in that span. He’s pitched at least five innings in eight straight starts.


This is getting crazy and interesting and it’s stressing me out!!!


Brian, what’s going on, looks like the whole pitching team is being changed,I don’t know were they are going to find pitchers, looks like they are taken up for the price we want to pay !!!                                                                Ralph
