Bedard to Miss Next Start

From Larry Stone

Erik Bedard has a tight right hamstring, and manager Don Wakamatsu just told us that he' a likely scratch for his next start, which was to be Saturday at Safeco against the Red Sox. Garrett Olson is likely to get the start. The Mariners don't think the injury to Bedard -- who tweaked his hammy in his last start -- is serious enough for the disabled list. They think he will be able to pitch soon if they don't push it.

Hooray.

Hopefully this is as it's stated and not actually too serious. We have seen already this season the Mariners be extremely conservative with their pitchers when it comes to minor injuries so them stating that Bedard is not likely bound for a short DL stint should tell us how they feel about the threat level of this one.
