Tigers, Red Sox Among Teams Interested In Bedard

The Tigers and Red Sox are among the many, many teams interested in Mariners lefty Erik Bedard, tweets SI's Jon Heyman.  Bedard has missed the last month with a knee sprain, but he'll be activated to start Friday's game against the Rays.  You can bet that'll be a well-scouted affair.

Even back in April, it was apparent that Bedard could be the closest thing to an ace on the trade market if he stayed healthy.  Knee injury aside, Bedard re-established himself with a 3.00 ERA, 8.5 K/9, 2.6 BB/9, 1.1 HR/9, and 40.9% groundball rate in 90 innings, picking up steam as he went along.  I can picture the Yankees, Indians, Rangers, Pirates, Cardinals, Reds, and Diamondbacks entering the fray as well, but Bedard has a good relationship with the Mariners and it's possible their best move is to re-sign him.
