Lots of news breaking here as Erik Bedard has been placed on the 15-day DL, retroactive to June 28, with a sprained left knee. The team has selected catcher Jose Yepez from Class AAA Tacoma and designated pitcher Chaz Roe for assignment.
Roe was the AAA pitcher acquired from Colorado for Jose Lopez.
No word yet on who will fill Bedard’s spot in the rotation. The team has a very fortunate off-day coming up tomorrow, so they can simply skip Bedard’s next start for now and keep everyone else relatively on-track.
Hey, at least it’s not Bedard’s arm.
