Bedrosian (head) has been cleared of a concussion after being struck by a comebacker during Sunday's game against Oakland, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Bedrosian is expected to be just fine after being given the green light by the Angels' medical staff. He surrendered five runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk across two-thirds of an inning prior to departing Sunday's matchup.
Bedrosian left Sunday's game against the Athletics after being hit in the head by a comebacker, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. According to Torres, the ball deflected off Bedrosian's glove before hitting him in the temple, softening the blow. The extent of the injury isn't known at this time, so he'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.
Bedrosian worked around a hit with two strikeouts in a scoreless inning of work to earn his first save of the season in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Rays. Bedrosian came on with a two-run lead and worked around a two-out single to retire the side while throwing 12 of 15 pitches for strikes. Virtually the entire bullpen was available to pitch in this one, so it's a bit peculiar that Bedrosian got the call ahead of Hansel Robles or any of the other four Angels relievers with a save to their name. The club seems to be using a true committee approach in save situations at the moment.
Bedrosian will serve as the Angels' opening pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Bedrosian has previously opened games on six other occasions this season, covering no more than one inning in any of those outings. He'll again be in line for a brief stay in the contest before giving way to Felix Pena, who is slated to pitch the majority of the innings as the Angels' bulk reliever.
Bedrosian will serve as the opener for Wednesday's game against the Athletics. Bedrosian will get the ball first for the second time in three days, with Felix Pena expected to cover the majority of innings behind him. In five appearances as an opener this season, Bedrosian owns a 3.60 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB in five innings.
