This may not stun many of you, but Erik Bedard will not make a start in Boston this weekend.

On the disabled list, the lefty hasn’t pitched for Seattle since June 8 – he’s down with shoulder inflammation – and has been slowly working his way back.

The new Mariners time table reads like this: Bedard will pitch a simulated game in Boston on Friday before the regular game, and throw perhaps as many as 65 pitches.

Stage Two comes Tuesday at Safeco Field, when Bedard is scheduled to start against the Baltimore Orioles.

Stage Three? Bedard will start the final game before the All-Star break, a Sunday home game against Texas.
