Bedard scratched; Oberholtzer to start vs. O's

BALTIMORE -- The Astros scratched left-hander Erik Bedard from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Orioles and will instead send rookie lefty Brett Oberholtzer to the mound.

Bedard hasn't yet been dealt, though it remains a possibility. On Tuesday, the Astros scratched right-hander Bud Norris, who was reportedly dealt to the Orioles for outfield prospect L.J. Hoes and another prospect on Wednesday right before the non-waiver Trade Deadline, according to Ken Rosenthal.

Bedard would have made his third start in Baltimore since he left the Orioles after 2007. He went 0-5 in five starts in July, but posted a respectable 3.86 ERA in that span. He's pitched at least five innings in eight straight starts.
