We all knew it was probably just a matter of time that Erik Bedard got hurt. Bedard getting hurt has become a pretty routine thing over the past few years.

This isn’t the first time Bedard has suffered back spasms. In 2008, he was removed from a start with the same issue. The good news is that he pitched nine days later, so hopefully this does not turn into something worse.
