Red Sox | Pitching coach thinks starting will help Daniel Bard

Boston Red Sox pitching coach Bob McClure said he thinks putting RPs Daniel Bard and Alfredo Aceves in the rotation will improve their stuff in the bullpen. McClure implemented a similar strategy with RPs Kyle Farnsworth and Joakim Soria in 2007 with the Kansas City Royals. "I think it made (Farnsworth) a better pitcher," McClure said. "He had more pitches. He was more comfortable with runners on. We worked on his pickoff move. We worked on holding runners. I think all of those things, combined, made him overall a better pitcher."
