Red Sox Spring Training 2012: Daniel Bard Looks To Rebound Against Blue Jays

Daniel Bard will be looking to prove that his last outing was a rain-interrupted fluke Tuesday night as he gets the start against Aaron Laffey and the Toronto Blue Jays. First pitch is at 7:05, with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

Entering the Red Sox' game against St. Louis in the middle innings, Bard recorded all of one out before being made to wait out a rain delay. When he came back out to restart his appearance, the results were not pretty. Allowing seven runs on four walks and six hits, Bard's 2.2 innings of work were a concerning mess.

While he was quick to mention that he was lacking the adrenaline that came with a start due to the circumstances, Bard's terrible outing was enough to put some fear into the hearts of Sox fans who are hoping he will fill the fourth spot in the rotation. A big outing tonight would go a long way towards easing minds.
