Mariners’ Bedard sees return this season as unlikely

Seattle Mariners left-hander Erik Bedard said Tuesday he "probably" won’t pitch this season.

Bedard told the Times’ Geoff Baker that an MRI exam on his surgically repaired pitching shoulder Tuesday did not reveal much positive news.

"You’ll have  to ask the doctor" as to what exactly the test revealed, Bedard told Baker after Seattle’s 4-0 loss to the Chicago White Sox.

Baker reported Bedard will consult Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed the surgery, and Dr. Edward Khalfayan, the Mariners’ medical director.

Bedard has been out almost a full calendar year; his last major league appearance was on July 25, 2009.
