John Hickey of the Seattle PI has some interesting news on the Erik Bedard trade.
Mariners outfielder Adam Jones traveled to Baltimore on Sunday, a source said, presumably to undergo a physical examination that originally was scheduled for Jan. 29.
A clean bill of health would be the last hurdle standing between the Mariners and Orioles and one of the most significant trades in franchise history.
The Mariners would get left-handed starting pitcher Erik Bedard in exchange for five players, highlighted by Jones and left-handed reliever George Sherrill. The Mariners also would send three minor league pitchers to the Orioles to complete the deal.
It looks like this deal may be nearing completion soon.
