Twins Sign Luke Bard

The Twins have signed supplemental first round pick Luke Bard for $1.227MM, reports Jim Callis of Baseball America. He signed for the full slot value and is the younger brother of Red Sox right-hander Daniel Bard.

Bard, a right-hander out of Georgia Tech, was the 42nd overall pick earlier this month. He was selected with the compensation pick Minnesota received when Jason Kubel signed with the Diamondbacks. Callis says Bard can run his fastball up to 93-95 mph with a hard breaking ball.

 Nice sign.. Hope he makes an impression.

Boston took him several years back in round 16, but he wouldn’t sign and went on to GT. This is the type of pitcher the Twins need.. One who throws HARD and with workable secondary stuff.. A CB as recall is his as well.
