Perrotto: Something Seemingly Different About David Bednar This Year (+)



BRADENTON, Fla. – David Bednar has passed the stage of establishing himself as a quality major-league closer.

Bednar was also selected for the All-Star Game last year. Last week, he finished a stint with the United States team in the World Baseball Classic.
