Pirates release ex-Mariner Bedard

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Pirates released struggling left-handed starter Erik Bedard on Tuesday, two days after he lost his 14th game of the season, tied for the most in the majors this year.
The 33-year-old Bedard went 7-14 with a 5.01 earned-run average for Pittsburgh after signing a one-year, $4.5 million contract in the offseason. Bedard got off to a strong start and went 4-1 in May before his numbers steadily declined. He went 4-10 over his final 14 starts as his ERA ballooned from 3.12 on May 27 to the worst among Pittsburgh's starters.
Bedard, who played for the Seattle Mariners from 2007 to 2011, gave up six runs in a 7-0 loss to Milwaukee on Sunday.
The Pirates have not announced who will replace Bedard on the roster and rotation.
