SEATTLE (AP) - A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Seattle Mariners and left-hander Erik Bedard are getting close to a one-year contract, pending a physical.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the Mariners have not announced a deal. The former Baltimore Orioles ace has been in his native Canada rehabilitating from surgery in August to repair a torn labrum in his pitching shoulder.
Mariners trainer Rick Griffin said last week that the 30-year-old Bedard felt good while throwing. Griffin said Bedard has three-to-five months left of rehabilitation.
