Pawtucket Red Sox
Things are going from bad to worse for Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard.
Daniel Bard is back in the bullpen, officially.
Daniel Bard’s third minor league appearance went a lot better than his first two, with the former Red Sox starter hurling two scoreless innings in relief for the Pawtucket Red Sox Thursday night against the Buffalo Bison.
Daniel Bard is not thrilled to be in Triple-A, but the young righty will make his first start with the PawSox Friday night as he tries to fix whatever isn’t right with him on the mound.
Sean McAdam of Comcast SportsNet joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Gresh and Zolak in studio Thursday afternoon to talk about Daniel Bard’s recent demotion to Triple-A.
According to The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham, the Red Sox are sending Bard to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Kevin Youkilis took another step towards rejoining the Red Sox on Friday night, playing five innings at third base for Pawtucket.
Injured Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis will remain in the minors leagues this weekend, and be re-evaluated by the team early next week, according to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.
Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched into the seventh inning on Thursday night, but the right-hander still struggled as the Pawtucket Red Sox fell 5-0 to the Durham Bulls.
Daisuke Matsuzaka is working his way through the minors as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery, making his first Triple-A appearance of his rehab assignment Monday night.
