Bard still fighting for fourth spot
While there seems to be a general assumption that Daniel Bard will break camp as Boston’s fourth starter, manager Bobby Valentine is still in the evaluation phase.
“I’m not there yet,” Valentine said. “I don’t know that anybody’s being necessarily analyzed in a vacuum, not on this whole team. I think it’s what the team needs, how he looks at what he’s doing, how he fits into that rotation with the people that can come into the game when he leaves. But he’s done real well. He’s going to make the team.”
Bard is pitching tonight at JetBlue Park against the Blue Jays.
