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

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Friday's game against the Cardinals, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

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

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.

Angels' Luke Bard: Set to open Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard will serve as the opener for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Bard will get the ball first for the Angels, though he likely won't be asked to pitch more than two innings before giving way to Felix Pena. The 28-year-old owns a 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB through seven appearances (10.2 innings) this season.

Angels' Luke Bard: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Registerreports.

Bard is back after just three days, replacing Cody Allen, who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Bard has a 4.15 ERA in 8.2 major-league innings this season.

April 24, 2019 12:28 PM
Angels' Luke Bard: Demoted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Bard surrendered a run and struck out five over three frames during his latest stint with the big-league club. With Bard heading back down to Salt Lake, the Angels have selected the contract of Sam Freeman.

April 20, 2019 07:16 PM
Angels' Luke Bard: Rejoins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

Bard will return to the Angels after spending the last 10 days at Salt Lake. The 28-year-old gave up three runs on six hits and one walk over 5.2 innings during his first major-league stint this year.

April 10, 2019 06:12 PM
Angels' Luke Bard: Shuttled back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

Bard was likely unavailable after throwing 1.2 innings in Tuesday's win over the Brewers, so the Angels opted to send him back to the minors in exchange for a fresh bullpen arm (Jaime Barria). The 28-year-old figures to rejoin the big club when another fresh reliever is needed.

March 16, 2019 04:48 PM
Angels' Luke Bard: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard's contract was selected by the Angels on Saturday.

The move doesn't guarantee that Bard will make the team out of camp, but it certainly increases his chances. Keynan Middleton (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move.

February 17, 2019 08:44 AM
Angels' Luke Bard: Signs minor-league deal with Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Bard spent time in Los Angeles last season, allowing seven runs over 11.2 innings after being selected from Minnesota in the Rule 5 draft. He was returned to the Twins in late April, but the Angels evidently liked him enough to bring him back. He'll be a long shot to make the Opening Day roster but could find himself back in the big leagues at some point this season.

Twins' Luke Bard: Returns to health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard (calf) was reinstated from the 7-day disabled list Thursday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Bard had been on the shelf for the past week with a left calf strain, but he's ready to return to action. The 27-year-old right-hander has made 17 appearances at Triple-A Rochester in 2018, posting a 3.16 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 25 strikeouts over 25.2 innings. Bard is yet to reach the majors with the Twins after pitching in eight games for the Angels in April.

July 6, 2018 06:32 PM
Twins' Luke Bard: Lands on MiLB disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was placed on the minor-league disabled list with a left calf strain, retroactive to Wednesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Bard returned to the Twins in April after being selected in the Rule 5 draft and then designated for assignment by the Angels. The 27-year-old has a 3.16 ERA and 1.17 WHIP since joining Triple-A Rochester, and will be eligible to return to action next week.

April 27, 2018 05:08 PM
Twins' Luke Bard: Returns to Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard cleared waivers and will return to the Twins, Dan Hayes of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

Bard was designated for assignment by the Angels last Saturday and went unclaimed on waivers, allowing him to return to the Twins after being selected in the Rule 5 draft this offseason. The 27-year-old will report to Triple-A Rochester as he returns to his old organization.

April 21, 2018 06:32 PM
Angels' Luke Bard: DFA'd by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday.

Bard was selected by the Angels in the Rule 5 draft in December, which means he could potentially return to the Twins, although his current status is uncertain. The 27-year-old allowed seven runs on 10 hits over 11.2 innings -- recording 13 strikeouts -- but pitched fairly well outside of a blowup performance where he allowed six runs against Boston last week.

March 28, 2018 10:24 AM
Angels' Luke Bard: Set to make 25-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard has been told he'll make the 25-man roster for Opening Day, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bard was selected by the Angels in the Rule 5 draft in December and he may stay in the bullpen all season as a result, even if he has a low-leverage role initially. He recorded a 2.76 ERA in 65.1 innings split between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Rochester last season, striking out 13.6 batters per nine innings.

March 17, 2018 04:20 PM
Angels' Luke Bard: Could stick with Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard has a decent chance to stick on the Angels' roster, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bard was selected by the Angels in the Rule 5 draft in December. The team particularly values his ability to pitch more than one inning -- he averaged just shy of five outs per appearance in the two highest levels of the Twins system last year. He recorded a 2.76 ERA in 65.1 innings split between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Rochester, striking out 13.6 batters per nine innings.

December 14, 2017 01:04 PM
Angels' Luke Bard: Popped by Angels in Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bard was selected by the Angels with the 12th pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

A 27-year-old righty reliever who has never pitched in the majors, Bard makes sense as a Rule 5 pick, as he is close to big-league ready. Last year he logged a 2.76 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 99 strikeouts in 65.1 innings between Double-A and Triple-A. Despite those gaudy strikeout totals, Bard was left unprotected for a reason, so don't expect him to see any high-leverage work in 2018. He will need to be kept on the active roster all season, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Twins.
