Bedard is expected in camp today.

Bedard spent the 2013 season with the Astros, posting a 4.59 ERA with 8.2 K/9, 4.5 BB/9 and a 36.4 percent ground-ball rate in 151 innings as both a starter and reliever. From 2006-11, Bedard posted a 3.44 ERA and whiffed 679 batters against 245 walks in 671 1/3 innings. Since that time, however, he’s turned in just a 4.78 ERA in 276 2/3 innings between Pittsburgh and Houston. (via MLB Trade Rumors [5])
