Daniel Bard’s latest stay in the majors lasted all of four days, as the Red Sox optioned the right-hander back to Double-A.
Bard appeared in just two games and faced a total of six batters, allowing one run on two walks and one hit while striking out one.
Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe writes that Bard “was not necessarily ready after making only eight appearances” in the minors, “but he was the only healthy reliever on the 40-man roster who was available at the time.”
So that tells you where he currently stands in the Red Sox’s plans.
