Red Sox | Daniel Bard struggling at Portland

Boston Red Sox RP Daniel Bard walked two and threw two wild pitches with Double-A Portland Thursday, May 2, and threw only four of his 15 pitches for strikes. He has walked three, thrown three wild pitches and thrown strikes on 13 of his 33 pitches in two outings since being optioned.

Fantasy Tip: It's back to the drawing board for Bard, who has not been the same pitcher since Boston attempted to convert him to a starting pitcher last year. His mechanics appear to be completely out of whack, giving him absolutely no control of his pitches. With Boston's bullpen one of the best in the bigs so far this year, don't expect Bard to show his face in the big leagues anytime soon.
