Bard to start at Lancaster

Red Sox 2006 first rounder Daniel Bard will be assigned to the (high-A) Lancaster JetHawks according to Baseball America's Chris Kline in BA's Prospect Blog. Sox farm director Mike Hazen and Bard are quoted extensively in the posting. Both comment on Bard's development of his secondary pitches (a changeup and curve are mentioned) and Bard acknowledges working on his mechanics and ties them to improvement of the secondary pitches. Bard speaks confidently about pitching in the notoriously hitting-friendly California League and Lancaster's Clear Channel Stadium.
