Bedard will start Sunday against the Blue Jays, if David Price (illness) is unable to go, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Price was already scratched from his regularly-scheduled nod Saturday due to the illness, which is threatening to hold him out until after the All-Star break. Meanwhile, relegated to the bullpen upon Jeremy Hellickson's season debut this week, Bedard hasn't pitched since July 2, when he was bombarded for six runs on eight hits and two walks in only two innings. Bedard's 7.71 K/9 this season is friendly enough, though, to endear himself in certain fantasy circles.
