DANIEL BARD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Daniel Bard's Throwing Again In Rangers Minors

One year ago today, the Red Sox made their last desperate attempt to salvage Daniel Bard. They promoted the formerly flame-throwing righty from AAA to the majors to see if he had figured things out. He had not. In the off-season, Bard was shipped to the Texas Rangers. Then, on January 2, 2014 he had Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery on his right shoulder. The latest is that he'...

Rangers' Bard preserved rib from TOS surgery

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- If the symptoms that led to Thoracic Outlet Syndrome were the reasons for the struggles of Texas right-hander Daniel Bard, he'll have a reminder of it for the rest of his life.      Somewhere in his backpack is the rib that Bard had removed during his surgery for TOS.      It's boiled and bleached too. Bard knows that because he handled the duties...

Once Dominant Daniel Bard Released By Sox

Bard At His PeakHis 79 holds in the 2009-2011 period were the most ever by a pitcher in the first 192 career appearances. That's how dominant Daniel Bard was for the Red Sox. In his eighth-inning set-up role, he routinely mowed down hitters with a 100+-MPH fastball that was delivered with a deceptive ease. The kid was the closer-in-waiting when Papelbon (as we all knew) would...

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Bard's velocity is a problem too

If you were holding out hope that Daniel Bard was going to morph into a capable starting pitcher, his performance ******** on Sunday should have effectively murdered those dreams.  You just don't walk 6 of 13 batters then take the mound again in 5 days.  When you see the pitches he's hurling (like the one above, courtesy of sbnation.com) it's obvious he has no control...
