Morrow, Bedard test ailiments
Starters throw side sessions; overnight response will mark progress
TUCSON, Ariz. -- The reports Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu received Saturday morning from the Peoria Sports Complex on two of his ailing pitchers were encouraging.With general manager Jack Zduriencik watching, left-hander Erik Bedard ended two days of suspense with a 30-pitch bullpen session, and right-hander Brandon Morrow had a 20-pitch workout from a shorter distance. How they respond overnight will determine the next step.
|"The thing we're looking at is the pitching. We can talk about the position players and having rookies out there, but we've walked way too many guys."|
