Ex-Red Sox Pitcher Daniel Bard Throws For Scouts, Eyeing MLB Comeback?


February 17, 2020

Comeback stories are among the best in sports. A former Boston Red Sox pitcher is looking to write his own.

Daniel Bard was one of Major League Baseball’s most dominant relievers in the early 2010s before attempting to become a starter and soon after fizzling out. He hasn’t thrown a pitch in the majors since 2013 despite several attempts — with multiple teams — to return to The Show.

Well, according to The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham, Bard is going to try to give it another shot. The 34-year-old right-hander reportedly threw for scouts with an eye toward potentially returning to a big league mound.

Bard, drafted by the Red Sox in the first round (28th overall) in 2006, had his best season in 2010 when he delivered a 1.93 ERA with 76 strikeouts over 74 2/3 innings.
