It seems if one of the ‘Killer B’s” acquired in the offseason is no more. According to sources close to Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Michael Sanserino of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pirates have released left-hander Erik Bedard.
Bedard would wind up pitching his last game in a Pirates uniform on Sunday afternoon after he didn’t give up a hit through three innings. In the fourth however, Bedard gave up back-to-back singles and then a three-run home run to Carlos Gomez on three consecutive pitches.
Bedard has a MLB high 14 losses on the season compared to only seven wins. Bedard leaves the Pirates with a 5.01 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.
Bedard, who was on a one-year contract, will be replaced in the lineup by Kevin Correia.
No official team announcement has been made yet.
