Per some Twitters from Shannon Drayer and Matt Pitman (one t?), Adrian Beltre will not require surgery, so he might be back sometime around September 1st and in fact, as far as Elias goes, him spending more time on the DL actually pushes his further up the list toward Type A status, which only helps the Mariners.

Erik Bedard is not so good news as the surgery revealed an inflamed bursa sac (no surprise) and a torn labrum. The labrum was repaired, but we know how those respond to surgeries (not overly well) and even if so, Bedard is done with baseball for the next six months, meaning at best, he returns to full strength around this time in 2010.
