Bedrosian signed a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Friday, Melissa Lockard of The Athletic reports.
Bedrosian opened the season with the Reds but gave up seven earned runs and walked six batters in 5.2 innings before being designated for assignment in mid-April and electing free agency. He's not on the Athletics' 40-man roster for now, but it's certainly possible he could fill an important role at some point this season, as he recorded a 3.41 ERA from 2018 to 2020.
Bedrosian elected free agency Wednesday.
Bedrosian was outrighted to the Reds' alternate training site Monday, but he'll now seek out other opportunities rather than reporting to the alternate camp. The right-hander posted an 11.12 ERA and 2.82 WHIP in 5.2 innings across six relief appearances to begin the season.
Bedrosian has cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Reds' alternate training site Monday.
Bedrosian was cast off the Reds' 40-man roster Saturday, and he'll remain in the organization after he went unclaimed on waivers. The right-hander made six appearances to begin the year and posted an 11.12 ERA and 2.82 WHIP in 5.2 innings during that time.
Bedrosian was designated for assignment by the Reds on Saturday.
Bedrosian earned an Opening Day roster spot, but it's no surprise he's already lost it given his performances thus far. He allowed runs in four of his six appearances, struggling to an 11.12 ERA, 2.82 WHIP and 7:6 K:BB in 5.2 innings of work. The move clears a spot for the Reds to activate Sonny Gray (back) from the injured list.
Bedrosian gave up three runs on three hits Friday night against the Diamondbacks while recording only two outs.
Bedrosian's appearance changed the tenor of Friday's game. The Reds were cruising, ahead 5-0, before Bedrosian allowed the three runs in the seventh. He can be excused for being a little rusty, having not pitched for six days prior to this outing.
The Reds selected Bedrosian's contract Monday.
The transaction clears the way for Bedrosian to join the Reds' Opening Day bullpen after he was able to impress while attending spring camp as a non-roster invitee. Over 8.2 innings, Bedrosian was charged with four earned runs, but he held opponents to a .103 average while generating 16 strikeouts. He could factor into the setup mix in front of the Reds' top closing candidates, Amir Garrett and Lucas Sims.
Bedrosian had three strikeouts and a walk in a scoreless inning Monday against the Rockies, building on his debut last week in which he struck out the side. His fastball sat at 90-91 mph, touching 92 mph, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Bedrosian actually threw a little harder last season, averaging 92.3 mph for the Angels, but he struggled to convert that into strikeouts -- just 11 in 14.2 innings. It was a bit of a surprise that the Angels let him walk and the Reds were able to sign him to a minor-league deal. So far, he's done well to make the case that he belongs on the team.
Bedrosian joined the Reds as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
It's something of a surprise to see Bedrosian stuck with a minor-league deal, as he owns a career 3.70 ERA in seven big-league seasons and posted a 2.45 ERA in 14.2 innings last season. He benefited from a .244 BABIP, however, and his unimpressive 11:6 K:BB may have scared teams off. If he impresses in camp, he'll have a good chance to win a bullpen role and could even have an outside chance to pitch in a high-leverage role for a Reds team that traded away closer Raisel Iglesias in December.
Bedrosian has cleared waivers and been released by the Angels after refusing an outright assignment to the minors.
The right-hander missed nearly all of August but posted a 2.45 ERA over 14.1 innings this season. Bedrosian has been a staple in the Angels' bullpen with a 3.20 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 234 games over the past five seasons, so he figures to garner some interest in the open market as a solid reliever.
Bedrosian returned to the mound to pitch one perfect inning against the Padres on Wednesday.
Exactly one month after his last appearance, Bedrosian was summoned in the ninth inning to close out a contest that had turned into a blowout after San Diego scored eight runs in the eighth. The right-hander retired all three batters he faced in the 18-pitch outing. Bedrosian logged 15 holds for the Angels last season, so he figures to move into more of a high-leverage role once he shakes any rust from his long layoff.
Bedrosian (thigh) was reinstated from the injured list Monday.
Bedrosian missed nearly the entirety of August with a right adductor strain. He allowed one run in 4.1 innings of work prior to suffering the injury, striking out three batters while walking four.
Bedrosian (adductor strain) is throwing at about 80 percent intensity, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.comreports.
He is without a timetable to return, but it sounds like he is weeks, not days away. Bedrosian had a 2.08 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 3:4 K:BB in 4.1 innings prior to suffering the injury.
Bedrosian (thigh) is still not 100 percent and his anticipated return date remains uncertain, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Bedrosian was placed on the 10-day IL on Aug. 4, so he is already eligible to return. The right-hander has been playing catch, but he appears to need more time to heal before rejoining the big-league club. Bedrosian appeared in four games prior to the injury, allowing one run while posting a 4:3 K:BB over 4.1 innings.
Bedrosian (thigh) played catch before Friday's game, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Bedrosian went on the injured list in early August with a right adductor strain after appearing in four games at the start of the campaign. While Angels manager Joe Maddon said Friday that Bedrosian remains without a set timeline for his return, the reliever's ability to begin a throwing program indicates that he is showing signs of progress.
Bedrosian (thigh) does not have a clear timetable for his return, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Bedrosian was placed on the injured list with a right adductor strain Aug. 4, but the team is currently unsure when he'll be able to resume pitching. "We really don't have a timetable on him. We're just trying to get him back to where he's feeling comfortable. It's something that didn't seem too serious. So I'm sure, it's fairly imminent when he gets back out there, but at this point, we really don't have a timetable," pitching coach Mickey Callaway stated Saturday. Bedrosian has allowed one earned run in 4.1 innings of work this season.
Bedrosian was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right adductor strain, retroactive to Aug. 3.
The right-hander apparently sustained the injury Sunday as he labored through two-thirds of an inning, allowing two hits and a walk. Bedrosian is eligible to be activated Aug. 14, though it's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined.
Bedrosian (back) is scheduled to pitch in Monday's intrasquad game, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Bedrosian was dealing with back stiffness during spring training, but he appears to have fully recovered and is slated to play in Monday's intrasquad matchup. Barring any setbacks, the right-hander should be ready for Opening Day on July 24. Bedrosian should assume a high-leverage role in the Angels' bullpen this season after posting a 3.23 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 59 appearances (seven starts) in 2019.
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.
