With SP Alexi Ogando scratched due to an anti-inflammatory injection, the Texas Rangers are in need of a starter for the game on Tuesday, Aug. 20. Rather than move the rotation around, speculation has the Rangers dealing for either SP Dan Haren or SP Erik Bedard, who have passed through waivers and can be dealt prior to Aug. 31.

Houston Astros SP Erik Bedard has clears waivers and the team can trade him to any other organization before the Aug. 31 waiver trade deadline.

Houston Astros SP Erik Bedard has been scratched from his start on Wednesday, July 31.
Fantasy Tip: Other tweets have implied that it's not tied to a trade, but no one is aware of an injury to the left-hander, either. Perhaps the Astros are doing as they did with Bud Norris -- just in case they make a deal. Norris may start tonight if he's not traded, but a deal sounds likely for him. Houston may decide to go ahead with Bedard if that happens. Stay tuned.

Houston Astros SP Erik Bedard has turned in recent strong outings, and he has drawn interest from teams heading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: A move from the lowly Astros to a contender would be good news for Bedard. If he is dealt, his fantasy value would still be limited to AL-only or NL-only leagues depending upon where he lands.

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman didn't allow an extra-base hit Saturday, July 6, against the New York Yankees, but he was touched up for 10 singles — tying a season-high for hits allowed — and was charged with five runs in just 5 1/3 innings. "It was a tough one for me," said Tillman (10-3), who was attempting to become the first Oriole to win eight straight decisions since Erik Bedard won nine consecutive in 2007.

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said Tuesday, May 14, that SP Erik Bedard will have his next started pushed back a day. The move is not performance-based, but Porter simply wants to split up his left-handed starting pitchers. Bedard's next scheduled start will now come Saturday, May 18, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Houston Astros SP Philip Humber will be moved to the bullpen with SP Dallas Keuchel taking his spot in the starting rotation. Keuchel will start against the Texas Rangers Friday, May 10, and SP Erik Bedard will make the start Saturday, May 11.
Fantasy Tip: Keuchel pitches to contact and won't give fantasy players many strikeouts. On the positive side, he doesn't walk many hitters, either, but he's not very attractive outside of AL-only formats. The matchup against the Rangers should probably be avoided at all costs.
