SEATTLE (AP) - Mariners left-hander Erik Bedard's season is over. Adrian Beltre's might resume.
The Mariners announced Friday that arthroscopic surgery on Bedard's pitching shoulder repaired a torn labrum and cleaned up other fraying in the joint. Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed the surgery on Thursday in Los Angeles, estimated Bedard would be able to throw again in four to six months.
The 30-year-old's future in Seattle future is in doubt. His contract ends this season.
Beltre severely bruised his right testicle when he was hit by a ground ball on Wednesday. He has been told he does not need surgery. Doctors have told him to rest completely for one week before he may slowly resume baseball activities.
