Erik Bedard Official

It’s official, the Rays have signed veteran lefty Erik Bedard to a Minor-League deal with an invite to the Major League camp for Spring Training.

The Rays head into camp looking to fill the No. 5 spot in their rotation, a vacancy created by Jeremy Hellickson’s right-elbow surgery to “remove loose bodies” that will keep the right-hander sidelined until May.

Beddard is expected to report to camp today. The Rays will have 64 in camp.
