The Mariners made two scratches prior to today's game.
Erik Bedard, who already has missed one start because of hip inflammation will be missing his schedualed start today as well. No word on what will happen now that he's missed two consecutive starts. The Mariners are saying that they are being very precautiuos, so they might be looked too hard at the injury, but that's good as long as the injury doesn't show up three months from now.
Adrian Beltre was the other scratch, and he will miss today's game with tightness in right hamstring. When I read the title at Geoff Baker's blog, I thought that his thumb injury was coming back, but that doesn't appear to be the case. This injury doesn't seem too major, and Beltre should be back out there again for the next game.
