Bedrosian (back) allowed eight runs (seven earned) on six hits and five walks over 3.1 innings in Cactus League play. He struck out three.
Bedrosian wasn't especially wild last season -- he posted an 8.5 percent walk rate against the league average of 8.3 percent -- so his command issues this spring may be partially a result of the back stiffness that bothered him through part of the exhibition slate. While no updates have been given on Bedrosian since play was suspended, he's likely to be fully recovered and ready to assume a high-leverage role in the Angels' bullpen by the time the regular season gets underway.
Bedrosian has been experiencing back stiffness and won't pitch in a game until Friday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Bedrosian last pitched March 6, when he surrendered one run in one inning against Kansas City. He's scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday and will return to game action Friday if that session goes well. The right-hander is expected to assume a high-leverage role in the Angels' bullpen this season.
Bedrosian (forearm) is listed as an available relief option on the Angels' lineup card for Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Reds.
While it's not clear if Bedrosian is actually scheduled to be used out of the bullpen, the fact that he's dressing for the contest indicates that the forearm strain that ended his 2019 season early isn't an issue this spring. The right-hander should be one of the top candidates to fill a key setup role in front of closer Hansel Robles this season after accruing a 3.23 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 64 strikeouts and 15 holds over his 61.1 innings in 2019.
Bedrosian (forearm) agreed to a one-year, $2.8 million contract with the Angels on Thursday, avoiding arbitration freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Bedrosian appeared in 59 games during the 2019 campaign with the Angels, posting a 3.23 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with a 64:22 K:BB over 61.1 frames. He spent time in both a starting and relief role, though he ended the year in the bullpen before suffering a forearm strain. Bedrosian is in line for high-leverage relief innings heading into the 2020 season.
Bedrosian (forearm) has been shut down for the rest of this season, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The Angels have not found anything new that is wrong with his forearm, but there's not enough season left for him to build back up to the point that he could return this year.
Bedrosian (forearm) has started a throwing program and could return by the end of the Angels' current homestand, which runs from Sept. 10 to Sept. 15, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Bedrosian has been sidelined since Aug. 29 due to a right forearm strain, though he's progressed to throwing off flat ground. Skipper Brad Ausmus indicated that Bedrosian could return by the end of the homestand if all goes well, but he'll need to fire two successful side sessions before being activated from the 10-day injured list.
Bedrosian was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right forearm strain, retroactive to Aug. 29.
Bedrosian allowed three runs on five hits in his last two outings as he's apparently been battling the issue for about a week, according to Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. The 27-year-old underwent an MRI and doesn't believe it's a serious issue, but he'll be shut down from throwing for 5-6 days before deciding the next step in his recovery.
Bedrosian struck out the side in the eighth inning to earn his 14th hold of the season in Saturday's 6-5 win over the White Sox.
Protecting a one-run lead, Bedrosian whiffed Welington Castillo, Ryan Goins and Yolmer Sanchez in order. In 12 appearances since the All-Star break, the reliever has accumulated five holds while pitching to a 0.64 ERA with 13 strikeouts in 14 innings. Overall, Bedrosian has a 2.84 ERA,1.07 WHIP and 61:21 K:BB in 57 innings this season.
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.
Bedrosian will serve as the team's opener Monday against the Cubs.
Bedrosian will begin the game in an interleague matchup, prior to turning the bulk of the innings over to Trevor Cahill. Bedrosian also served as the team's opener on May 28, going one inning at Oakland and surrendering an earned run on a solo homer. Overall, he's managed a 3.08 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 28 strikeouts across 26.1 innings for the season.
Bedrosian will serve as the opener Tuesday at Oakland, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Bedrosian has opened three times for the Angels and has given up one run on two hits over three innings. The 27-year-old has good numbers this season with a 2.96 ERA and 1.23 WHIP while recording five holds, but his inconsistent high-leverage usage and 12.3 percent walk rate limit his fantasy appeal.
Bedrosian (1-3) was charged with the loss and a blown save Friday against the Rangers after surrendering two runs (one earned) and one hit. He walked one and struck out one.
Bedrosian came in to pitch the seventh inning with the Angels up, 3-2. Unfortunately, a combination of fielding errors, a walk, and a two-run single by Hunter Pence was all it took to blow the game. Bedrosian holds a 3.13 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 22 appearances.
Bedrosian (1-2) took the loss in Tuesday's 4-3 defeat at the hands of the Twins, allowing one run on two hits in an inning of work.
Getting the nod as the opener ahead of Felix Pena, Bedrosian put the Angels in an early hole that they were never able to climb out of. The right-hander has a 3.10 ERA and 23:11 K:BB through 20.1 innings, but his fantasy value remains limited by his role -- he's got one win and three holds in 19 appearances.
Bedrosian will serve as the opener for Tuesday's game against the Twins, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Bedrosian will likely only toss the first inning before making way for Felix Pena, who's expected to serve as the primary pitcher. This is the third time this season that Bedrosian will be used as an opener.
Bedrosian will open Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Bedrosian will come out of the bullpen as Wednesday's opener and will probably only pitch the first inning. Felix Pena will be the primary pitcher. This marks the second time the Angels have deployed an opener in the last week, as the previously used Hansel Robles to begin the game Sunday against the Mariners. This may be a trend that the Angels continue the rest of the year, so Bedrosian could get more chances to work as the opener.
Bedrosian (1-0) walked one and struck out two in a scoreless seventh inning Tuesday to pick up the win in an 11-8 victory over the Brewers.
The right-hander is off to a good start to 2019, posting an 8:3 K:BB through 5.1 innings to go along with a win and a save. Bedrosian is no longer seen as a viable closing option for the Angels, but if his strikeout rate rebounds from last year's career-low 8.0 K/9, he could still have some fantasy value in deeper formats that reward holds or high-strikeout relief arms.
