Mariners Offer Arb To Beltre, But Not To Bedard

The Mariners made an arbitration offer to Type B free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre, but not Type B free agent pitcher Erik Bedard.  710 ESPN Seattle's Shannon Drayer (via Twitter) reported the Beltre offer, while Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reported the Bedard news.

MLBTR's Tim Dierkes predicted that Beltre wouldn't receive an arbitration offer, but Baker's piece analyzes the move and calls it a calculated risk since Baker believes Beltre is likely to turn it down in search of a better deal elsewhere.
