Red Sox | Daniel Bard making adjustments

Boston Red Sox RP Daniel Bard has allowed seven runs in 11 innings with Triple-A Pawtucket, striking out 15 and walking five. He admits he was initially in a rush to be called back up to the big leagues, but he's more focused on returning to a relief role and finding success now. He has started throwing more in between his outings, a routine he stopped early in his rookie year with Boston. "Something I've gotten back to from more than just a physical standpoint is back in '09, my rookie year, I would never go more than two days without getting off a mound," Bard said. "Whether that was in a game, or if I didn't pitch the next day I would get off the mound for what might be 10 or 15 pitches off the mound just to repeat it and just to get that feeling, so you're not going too far in between. You're repeating and having that feeling consistently." Bard feels like he is more in charge on the mound now, and his command is starting to come around.
