The Boston Red Sox picked Bard with the 28th overall choice in the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft, and he debuted with the club in 2009.

His 2013 bullpen outings with the Red Sox were so unsuccessful that the team demoted him and eventually released him in September.

According to sources, the relief pitcher spent years bouncing between minor league teams before finally calling it quits in 2017 after he could not reclaim his former form.

Bard signed a minor league contract with the Colorado Rockies in February 2020 and was on the team's Opening Day roster. After making 23 bullpen appearances and recording an ERA of 3.65 and six saves, he was voted the National League Comeback Player of the Year.
