TORONTO, ON: Rockies right-hander Daniel Bard will undergo surgery on the flexor tendon in his throwing arm and will miss the rest of the season, per Thomas Harding of MLB.com. This comes after Bard told the Rockies beat that he’ll rehab from the surgery before deciding next year whether he wants to continue his playing career.


Bard was already listed on the Rockies 15-day IL and will now certainly be moved to the 60-day. Bard, 38, is in the second season of a two-year, $19 million extension.


Bard took over the closer role in Colorado during the 2021 season. His 20 save season with a 5.21 ERA was a forgettable one. However, his 2022 season was a breakout year for him and earned him that extension. Bard pitched to a phenomenal 1.79 ERA with 34 saves.


Daniel Bard’s career has been a wild one. From pitching in Boston for five seasons from 2009 to 2013, then heading out of the playing side and even took a job with the Diamondbacks as a mental skills professional. However, Bard felt a comeback was in the works as he signed a minor league contract with the Rockies in 2020 and has been with the franchise ever since.
