Red Sox righthander Daniel Bard has been in extended spring training in Fort Myers, Fla., working on his delivery and secondary pitches before heading out to a full-season club again.
The Sox have targeted his return date as sometime prior to June 1, but as of right now Bard’s destination is uncertain.
“We haven’t made that decision yet,” Boston farm director Mike Hazen said. “We anticipate getting him out before the beginning of June, but we haven’t committed to where he’ll go.”
Don’t be surprised if Bard heads to low Class A Greenville just to build back some confidence, however. The 28th overall pick in 2006 went 0-2, 10.13 with 22 walks in 13 innings at high Class A Lancaster this season before being shut down with a triceps strain.
