John McLaren was asked about the roster moves from today when he spoke to reporters this afternoon before the game.
On optioning P Eric O'Flaherty to AA:
"We had to get Eric his confidence back. He was struggling so much. The velocity is there and we're trying to give him a chance to work through it and it just wasn't happening and we had to make a move and Arthur was ready."
On Erik Bedard's hip (Note: Bedard was in the clubhouse and looked to be walking around just fine, though he evaded commenting on his injury): "He said he's feeling better today...Hopefully this will be short term."
Bedard will throw a bullpen session before he returns to game action.
McLaren wasn't sure when Bedard was going to throw again but it could be tomorrow.
On R.A. Dickey: "He's kind of versatile. He'll be everywhere. In case Erik's not ready [for his next start] he might take that slot."
On Adrian Beltre's hamstring: "He said he feels fine, so we'll go from there."
On J.J. Putz: "He's taking the day off [from throwing]...He's fine. We do not have a time frame on this guy. It's something where we want him to be 100 percent and take his time."
