From Yahoo! Sports:
The Mariners could have had a good shot at ending their struggles against the Orioles with ace Erik Bedard eligible to come off the disabled list for this game against his former team. However, the left-hander’s return is being pushed back in order to give him another throwing session in the bullpen.
He is scheduled to start Saturday against Oakland.
In his place, the Mariners will turn to Jarrod Washburn (1-3, 4.13 ERA), who’s hoping to avoid losing his third straight start. After falling to Kansas City on April 14, he gave up season highs of four runs and 10 hits in six innings of a 4-1 defeat against the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday.
Washburn is 6-4 with a 4.52 ERA in 13 career games—12 starts—against the Orioles. Markakis is 1-for-9 with five strikeouts against the left-hander.
Washburn will face Baltimore left-hander Adam Loewen (0-1, 6.32), who’s coming off his first loss of the year. Loewen gave up three runs and six hits while walking five in the 3-1 defeat against the Chicago White Sox last Wednesday.
He was originally scheduled to start Tuesday, but the team gave him some additional time off to work on his command.
