Astros rotation options

Left-hander Erik Bedard, signed by the Houston Astros to lend a veteran hand on a club laced with inexperience, has yielded 17 earned runs in his past 11 1/3 innings, including a mediocre outing Wednesday in the Bronx. The 34-year-old has allowed 36 baserunners in 18 2/3 innings, suggesting the Astros may need to look for another option.
