Rain in NY doesn’t mean the news stops

It’s raining in New York, so no batting practice on the field for the Mariners – but lots of tidbits fromt the clubhouse.

The game is now scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. (EST).

Outfielder Ryan Langerhans, as expected, is here and in uniform, taking the roster space of Adrian Beltre.

Beltre underwent surgery to remove a bone spur from his left shoulder, and the team was told there was no damage to the rotator cuff – just plenty of inflammation caused by the spur.

Erik Bedard could start in Boston on Saturday, but he’s not certain he’s ready and the team may have to talk him into it.

Catcher Jamie Burke cleared waivers and, for the third time this season, was assigned to Tacoma. He’ll report Wednesday.

Rookie reliever Shawn Kelley will join Tacoma tomorrow, as well, and if he pitches on schedule could rejoin the Mariners bullpen this weekend in Boston.

Yuniesky Betancourt’s return may be moved up, too. On the disabled list with a strained hamstring, he’s now out of pain and could rejoin the team next week at home.
