Yes, the ever-watchful, all-seeing media here in camp with the Seattle Mariners noticed immediately this morning that Erik Bedard wasn't throwing in the bullpen on his regular day to throw.
Panic, ladies and gentleman - fear has run amuck in the press room.
Manager Eric Wedge insisted he'd given the oft-injured lefty a day off from throwing because he'd looked so good early. Bedard took part in the rest of the workout with teammates, but because it's Bedard, there's nervousness here.
Two pitchers who will start the season on the disabled list - David Aardsma and Shawn Kelley - were on th field today, with Kelley playing catch and Aardsma, on crutches, watchings teammates in the bullpen.
Five workouts into the spring, with more than 40 left, the Mariners say they have no injuries to report. Including Bedard.
In a press room on high alert, however, it's never to early to beat the oh-no drum.
I tracked Erik down in the clubouse and asked about his health. He rolled his eyes.
"Let me guess, someone said I was injured on the internet," he said.
I told him of course not, that no one would be that speculative. I said some folks might have implied he could be hurt, but nothing too limiting.
"I'm absolutely, 100 per cent fine," Bedard said.
Well, that's going to make this injury story a little harder to write ...
