ARLINGTON, Texas -- Mariners left-hander Erik Bedard likely will miss his next scheduled start Saturday night in Boston.
Seattle manager Don Wakamatsu said Thursday that Bedard is a probable scratch because of a tight right hamstring. Wakamatsu said he should be able to make a decision on Friday.
Bedard threw a season-high 110 pitches in a season-low 4 2/3 innings Sunday at Minnesota. He is 2-1 with a 2.53 ERA.
Wakamatsu said the Mariners likely would fill his spot in the rotation from the current staff. Left-hander Garrett Olson, who has a 2.57 ERA, is among the possibilities.
