Pirates' Daniel Bard: Agrees to minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniel Bard agreed to a minor-league contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates last week, MLB.com's Adam Berry reports.

Bard has seen his career fall into a tailspin after he was one of the league's better setup men with the Red Sox from 2009 through 2011. He saw his command betray him in 2012, and has had difficulty finding the strike zone ever since, which has resulted in him making just two big league appearances since the start of 2013. Bard will hope that by connecting with Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage -- regarded as one of the league's top gurus -- he'll be able to revive his stalled career.

Cubs' Daniel Bard 'felt really good' with Sunday's simulated game
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Daniel Bard threw his first simulated game of the spring Sunday as he continues his return from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last January, MLB.com reports.

"It felt really good — it was fun," Bard said. "The velocity was nice to have but I was more excited that I was pounding the zone and throwing a lot of strikes."

Bard appeared in four games with Class A Hickory as part of his rehab last year then took the rest of the summer off. He'll throw one more simulated game before the team decides whether to use him in a Cactus League game.

"I’ve been pushing [pitching coach Chris Bosio] as hard as I can to get out in a real game but their conservative approach seems to be working well," Bard said. "I get it. When I step outside myself, I see what they’re saying. For me, I haven’t felt this good in so long, I want to keep pushing it."
