01:36 PM ET 07.18 | The chances Erik Bedard will be traded soon by the Mariners are now as slim as the prospects for a happy finish to Seattle's lost season. Manager Jim Riggleman said Thursday his ailing ace, rumored to be coveted by contenders despite a demonstrated inability to last in his 15 starts, likely will not pitch early next week against Boston as originally hoped. That means Bedard would have just one start before the non-waiver trading deadline July 31 -- assuming the left-hander's pitching shoulder is healthy again by then. Major league rules prohibit teams from trading players while they are on the disabled list, unless such a deal is expressly approved by the commissioner.
