The mystery continues for Erik Bedard

The news from the Mariners today on Erik Bedard is not good. He’ll fly to New York next week and meet with specialist Dr. David Altchek to get a third opinion on his sore shoulder.
It’s getting less and less likely that Bedard will throw a pitch this season. He’s had two surgeries already and is still not feeling right.
He has already sought the opinions of Dr. Lewis Yocum and D. Edward Khalfayan. Once he gets an opinion he can live with, he’ll still have to pursue treatment and then get the arm strong enough to pitch again. There are just over nine weeks left in the season.
You do the math. Not looking good.
