Manny Will Walk

Because I can’t just be happy with a 21-year old superstar, I decided to dig into Manny Machado’s walk rate today. When I was trying to figure out WHY he walks so rarely (His 3.7% BB-Rate is 7th...

Baseball America Giving O's Some Love

Bedard Has Torn Labrum - Will He Be Non-Tendered?

22

Bad news for Seattle on the Bedard front. He's having surgery at the end of the month to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. As O's fans know all-to-well, this is one of the worst injuries a pitcher can suffer, and it could end his career. At best, Bedard could be ready to return to the majors in the second half of the 2009 season. 2009 is Bedard's last year of arbitration eligibility, and he's virtually guaranteed to make $7MM to $10MM if the Mariners tender him a contract. Their other option is to cut ties with Bedard completely, and make him a free agent. So, if Bedard does become a free agent, should the O's sign him to an incentive-laden contract for 2009, with an option for 2010? Say, $2MM for 2009 (with the potential for $8MM if he pitches well), and a $10MM option for 2010?
