The Daniel Bard story continues to get worse. He pitched in another Gulf Coast League game this afternoon in Port Charlotte, Fla., and walked five of the six batters he faced, threw two wild pitches and allowed four stolen bases.
Bard came out of the bullpen to start the third inning against the Rays. Here is what followed.
The Gulf Coast League is a rookie league, typically for players who are 17 or 18 and either right out of high school or the Dominican Summer League.
Bard remains on the 40-man roster. The Sox have moves to make when rosters expand on Sunday. They also need to activate Clay Buchholz off the 60-day disabled list later next month. You have to wonder what that means for Bard.
