Pitcher of the Week, April 9 - 19: Daniel Bard

Continuing his bullpen brilliance from last season and spring training, Pawtucket closer Daniel Bard has been voted SoxProspects.com Pitcher of the Week for April 9-19 by the SoxProspects.com community. The tall righthander pitched 7.0 innings, limiting opposing teams to 1 earned run on 1 hit (a solo home run) while striking out 11 and walking only 2 to record 2 saves for Pawtucket. A first-round pick by the Red Sox in 2006, Bard began his tenure with the organization as a starter before moving to the bullpen to begin last season. Once converted to relief, he pitched to a 5-1 record with 7 saves and a sparkling 1.51 ERA in 77.2 innings, striking out 107 between his stints in Greenville and Portland in 2008. He is currently the third ranked prospect in the organization as designated by SoxProspects.com.
