The Bard-knock life

Daniel Bard rocketed through Single-A Greenville this summer with something to prove, and he did just that by striking out 43 batters in 28 innings to go along with a 0.64 ERA. He’s followed that up with an impressive 2.18 ERA in 43 1/3 relief innings at Double-A Portland over the last two months. The progress has Bard ready for a call-up to Triple-A Pawtucket and a spot on Boston’s radar screen next season. (Metro Boston News)
