Mariners' Bedard scratched with sore buttocks
Bedard was on the DL from April 15-26 because of soreness in his left hip
Manager Don Wakamatsu: "It's not in the hip joint, it's more in the muscle"
Bedard is 1-0 this spring training and hasn't allowed a run in 4 2-3 innings
Bedard was on the disabled list from April 15-26 because of soreness and inflammation in his left hip. He didn't start after July 4 and had shoulder surgery Sept. 26.
"Right now we're not concerned because it's not in the hip joint, it's more in the muscle," manager Don Wakamatsu said Wednesday. "I think it's just really about being on the mound again. This is more muscle soreness. He had some stiffness in there about four days ago, and we thought it was best at this point to rest it a little bit. It might be a blessing to get his arm a little bit of a break, too."
Bedard is 1-0 this spring training and hasn't allowed a run in 4 2-3 innings.
