Angels' Luke Bard: Thriving since latest callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard has retired 23 straight batters and owns a 1.93 ERA over 14 innings in September.

Bard compiled a 5.29 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 23 appearances prior to September but has been much more effective since returning to the big club on the first day of roster expansion, allowing only three earned runs in 14 frames while posting a 13:1 K:BB. His success down the stretch in an expanded role -- he leads all Angels relievers in innings during September -- could put the 28-year-old could in line for a prominent bullpen spot for the Halos next season.

Angels' Luke Bard: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels recalled Bard from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Red Sox. He covered 1.1 scoreless innings in relief, giving up one hit and striking out a batter.

Bard had delivered a 5.29 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 23 appearances with the Angels prior to rejoining the big club Sunday as one of its seven September callups. Though he acquitted himself well in his first appearance back with the Angels, Bard isn't expected to seize a meaningful role in the bullpen down the stretch.

Angels' Luke Bard: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake following Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rangers.

Bard served as the 26th man for the twin bill and covered 2.1 scoreless frames during the nightcap. The 28-year-old has a 5.29 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB over 34 major-league innings this season.

Angels' Luke Bard: Joins big club for twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels recalled Bard from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Rangers.

Bard has been designated as the Angels' 26th man for the twin bill, but he could stick around with the big club over Jaime Barria, who was also recalled from Triple-A to take the hill for the second game of the doubleheader in what may only amount to a spot start. For however long he's up with the big club, Bard likely won't see much usage in high-leverage spots. He's given up runs in all but one of his last seven relief appearances with the Angels and owns a 5.68 ERA across 31.2 innings this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, Bard said after the contest that he felt OK and expects to avoid a trip to the injured list. Bard, who had been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake earlier in the day, was charged with an earned run after reliever JC Ramirez allowed Santana to score later in the fifth.

Angels' Luke Bard: Rejoins big club

Bard was one of three players recalled from Triple-A after the Angels placed all of Griffin Canning (elbow), Felix Pena (knee) and Andrelton Simmons (ankle) on the 10-day injured list. The 28-year-old righty will likely fill a low-leverage role out of the Los Angeles bullpen after posting a 5.46 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 31.1 innings across his 21 appearances with the club earlier this season.

Angels' Luke Bard: Working as opener Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard is slated to serve as the Angels' opening pitcher for Thursday's game against the Tigers, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Manager Brad Ausmus has regularly been using Felix Pena as a primary pitcher rather than a traditional starter of late and will follow that plan again Thursday with the right-hander's turn in the pitching schedule coming up in the series finale. Bard, who owns a 2.35 ERA and 19:5 K:BB in 15.1 innings this season, is only expected to cover an inning or two before giving way to Pena.
