Daniel Bard hasn't pitched in a game for Double A Portland since May 15 when he walked five batters in one inning. He has 17 walks in 12.2 innings for the Sea Dogs this season.

Asked if Bard had been shut down, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington responded via text, "No. Just giving him a little break."

Cherington said Bard is working on things away from the games.

How long this "break" will be is anyone's guess. Cherington indicated that Bard is not being shut down for the remainder of the season.
