Erik Bedard Will Skip Next Start Due To Left Knee Injury

According to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com, Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Erik Bedard is expected to skip his next scheduled start on Friday against the Rays due to a left knee injury. Bedard went six innings on Saturday and collected his first win as a Red Sox against the Rangers.

In 2005, Bedard suffered an MCL injury which caused him to have surgery and miss significant time while he was with the Baltimore Orioles. Bedard himself doesn't believe that his current injury will amount to a disabled list stint or surgery in the offseason.

"I'm not concerned," said Bedard, who doesn't expect he will need surgery after the season. "It's just sore and I just don't want to make it too bad for later in the season and the playoffs. ... It's not bad. It hurts a little bit once in a while, a little more last start. Take a start off and start fresh." (via WEEI)

Bedard is 1-2 with a 3.66 ERA in six starts with Boston since being acquired back on July 31 from the Seattle Mariners.
