No! Daniel Bard plays in the Red Sox organization. However, last night, Twins supplemental first-round draft pick (and Daniel's brother) Luke Bard tweeted a picture from Target Field. He was at the game yesterday and obviously there would have been some business talked while he was there as well. I tweeted him and asked if there was any business discussions at Target Field yesterday. I then noted that not ALL Twins games are THAT long.

He responded by tweeting, "Yeah, that was a long one!! Glad we won!"

So although he didn't answer the question directly, could the word "WE" indicate that he has signed or is near signing?

I have little concern that he will sign. It would just be great to get it done sooner rather than later.

I was a little concerned about him signing so I am glad to hear that he was at Target Field. Hopefully the deal gets done and he can get put on a rookie league roster for the rest of the year.

Isn't he just getting off an injury?

Great. Any idea where he'll go?

I'd say first to Ft. Myers to work for a few days. Then I would guess he'd go to Beloit, possibly to the Miracle.

Does anyone have an idea on how signable Baxendale(sp) will be?

So much for Fanatic Jack and his thoughts about Luke Bard going back to college. Hopefully Jack is part Mayan and the world does not end 12/21/2012... :rolleyes:

According to LEN3, Bard signed for slot. He'll go to Fort Myers to have his shoulder treated before being assigned to a club.

I find this a little interesting; the injury that Bard had pre-draft was to a lat muscle, not the (more serious) shoulder. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if Bard spent the remainder of the season getting healthy and makes his debut at instructs this fall.

I'd be fine with that too.

Are we sure they're not talking about the same thing? Lat and shoulder are sometimes used interchangeably in injury reports.

I think it is the same thing - LEN3 said the Twins knew about the problem before they drafted him, so it doesn't sound like it's anything new they've found. He could get "treated" and assigned quickly, if the shoulder is in good shape.

I guess we will find out after the CWS. He is pitching tonight.

I would hope it is the same, but geez... if it's a lat, let's call it a lat.
