Player News
  • Bard re-signed with the Rockies on a one-year, $4.4 million deal, avoiding arbitration, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Bard's major-league career began back in 2009, but he was still eligible for arbitration thanks to his long time away from the majors from 2014 to 2019. He saved 20 games for the Rockies last season but was removed from the closer role late in the year, finishing with a 5.21 ERA, a mark which isn't good even after adjusting for Coors Field. Depending on who the Rockies bring in over the winner, it's possible he works his way back into the ninth inning next season, but he'll be a lower-tier closer at best even if that happens.

  • Bard (7-8) allowed three earned runs on one hit and two walks while striking out two across two-thirds innings, taking the loss to the Giants on Sunday. Bard entered the ninth inning in a tie game, but quickly surrendered the lead. He allowed two walks and a single before being relieved by Tyler Kinley. Kinley gave up a three-run homer to Brandon Crawford, which allowed the other two runners that Bard was responsible for to score. Bard broke his streak of seven straight appearances without allowing a run. He has a 5.40 ERA and 1.67 WHIP with 76 strikeouts in 61.2 innings this season.

  • Bard (7-7) took the loss in Saturday's 5-2 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing three runs on two hits and two walks without recording an out. One day after Bud Black stated Bard was no longer the team's closer, Bard validated his manager's decision by permitting four baserunners and three runs without getting any outs. He's now surrendered multiple runs in three of his last four appearances and owns an 11.42 ERA in 8.2 August innings.

  • Manager Bud Black said after Friday's win over the Dodgers that Bard is no longer the Rockies' closer, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports. The veteran right-hander pitched the eighth inning Friday while Carlos Estevez picked up the save, and the skipper confirmed the role change after the contest. Bard delivered a scoreless frame as a setup man to earn a hold, but he surrendered eight earned runs and had two blown saves over his previous five appearances to lose the job. He could end up receiving another look in the ninth inning if he can get back on track, but for now it appears Estevez will be the top option for saves in Colorado.

  • Bard (7-6) gave up a two-run homer and recorded one strikeout in Monday's loss to the Cubs. Bard entered a 4-4 game in the ninth inning and gave up a walkoff shot to Rafael Ortega, giving him his sixth loss of the year. He's allowed five runs over his last 3.1 innings, raising his season ERA to 4.68. It was Bard's first loss since July 6 and he's still 20-for-27 in save chances on the year.
