-6 with a 6.22 ERA in 17 games, 10 starts, and spent a antworten

BOSTON -- The Red Sox have designated once prominent reliever Daniel Bard for assignment on Sunday due to the need for a spot on their 40-man roster. The 26-year old Bard, a key part of the back end of Bostons bullpen from 2009-11, has battled control problems the last two seasons. The Red Sox recalled recently acquired Quintin Berry as part of their September call-ups Sunday. Berry was picked up in a minor-league trade with Kansas City last week. Bard has bounced around the minors this season, struggling with his control for most of his outings. In his recent outing for Single-A Lowell on Saturday night, Bard walked four and had a wild pitch, but a pickoff at third prevent him from giving up a run. "We felt like performance was going to lead to confidence," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "But I thought in spring training there were some outings that were not far off to where he was previous, whether it was a year or two prior, and I felt like as he was building a little momentum, felt like there was still one step yet left to make with him, in terms of just the power and the consistency to it. It looked like he was on his way. Unfortunately, it didnt happen." Bards desire to start was fulfilled last season by GM Ben Cherington and then-manager Bobby Valentine, but it turned out to be a tough run for the right-hander. He was 5-6 with a 6.22 ERA in 17 games, 10 starts, and spent a large amount of the second half of the season at Triple-A Pawtucket. When he came up in 2009, Bard had a high-90s fastball and a sharp curve, making him one of the games more effective set-up men. But his control became an issue last season. "To have that kind of power and that kind of ease in which he threw, and the breaking ball he had in addition to the 98 to 101, or whatever it was (fastball), yeah, he was as good as there was in the game," Farrell said. If he clears waivers, Bard could go back to the minors because he has an option left. In other moves, Boston called up catcher Ryan Lavarnway and right-handed pitcher Rubby De La Rosa from Triple-A. Utility infielder John McDonald, acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies for a minor league pitcher on Saturday, was added to the 40-man roster and infielder Brandon Snyder was activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Off-Season Game Plan looks at what the Blue Jackets may do to build upon last seasons success to return to the playoffs again next year.VANCOUVER - A record-setting season earned Solomon Elimimian a piece of CFL history Thursday night.The B.C. Lions linebacker was named the leagues outstanding player, the first pure defensive performer to receive its highest individual accolade. The six-foot, 227-pound Elimimian also captured top defensive player honours during the CFL awards banquet at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.And for good reason. Elimimian, the 2010 CFL top rookie, posted 143 defensive tackles and 151 total tackles, both CFL records, and added five sacks. Elimimian, 28, registered the double in voting conducted by 53 members of the Football Reporters of Canada and the nine CFL head coaches.Man, I couldnt sleep, I was so nervous thinking about my speech, thinking about what I need, said Elimimian, who was up at 4 a.m. on Thursday. Its nerve-wracking because its something thats uncharted.Winning an award is great but something of this magnitude I probably wont fully comprehend, fully appreciate until later on. Its unbelievable.In his acceptance speech, Elimimian paid tribute to former Lions head coach Mike Benevides, who was in attendance, and invited teammates and family up on stage with him. And when Elimimian received the top defensive player award, he also recognized his presenter, five-time winner Willie Pless. Willie is the man, Elimimian said. I think its important to understand the guys whove paved the way for you.When you come to the CFL you have to look at a guy like Willie Pless, who has won (top) defensive player five times in a row. Who can say theyve done that? Im glad I was able to meet him.While this season was Elimimians most productive it was also an emotionally draining one. With each passing week, the Lions linebacker said he felt the heavy weight of expectation regarding the outstanding player award.I dont think people understand how mentally difficult it was every week to go out there and perform, he said. In a sport like football playing the position I play it was tough and the more and more we kept going the more pressure there was.It was the most emotional season Ive had in my whole career.And Elimimian had some bad news for opposing offences: Hes not reached his peak yet.I just feel like mentally Im starting to come into my own, he said. My thing was I knew I was going to dominate every game, it was just about how much I was going to dominate.Elimimian earned the outstanding player award by a 48-14 margin over Toronto Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray. Despite requiring off-season shoulder surgery, Ray, 35 was the CFLs passing leader with 4,595 yards and 28 touchdowns.Ray was also a finalist to Calgarys Jon Cornish for the award last year.Elimimian secured the top defensive player by a 58-4 margin over Montreal Alouettes linebacker Bear Woods, the CFLs second-leading tackler with 89.Cornish didnt come away empty-handed, capturing his third straight top Canadian award by a 50-12 margin over defensive lineman Ted Laurent of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Cornish led the CFL in rushing with 1,082 yards despite playing only nine regular-season games.Cornish became the second three-time winner, joining former Ottawa star Tony Gabriel in that exclusive group.Hes truly a remarkablee Canadian, Cornish said of Gabriel.dddddddddddd Im pretty happy to be compared to him.Laurent recorded a career-best nine sacks for Hamilton, which faces Calgary on Sunday in the Grey Cup game at B.C. Place Stadium.The other individual award winners included Toronto kicker/punter Swayze Waters (special-teams player), Calgary centre Brett Jones (top lineman) and Edmonton Eskimos linebacker Dexter McCoil (rookie).Veteran Calgary long-snapper Randy Chevrier captured the Tom Pate award for outstanding community service while Toronto linebacker James Yurichuk received the Jake Gaudaur Veteran Trophy.Mark Cohon presented the Commissioners award to Ottawa Redblacks owners Roger Greenberg, Jeff Hunt, John Pugh, John Ruddy and Bell Shenkman for returning the CFL to the Canadian capital. Saskatchewan Roughriders president Jim Hopson received the Hugh Campbell Distinguished Leadership award for his contributions to the CFL.Waters, 27, earned the special-teams award by a 51-11 margin over Lirim Hajrullahu of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Waters season began tragically as his best friend, Tait Hendrix, died in a motorcycle accident during training camp. Waters wore No. 34 — Hendrixs high school number — this year and dedicated the 14 season to Hendrixs memory.I wanted to do it to honour him, honour our friendship, said Waters. He was the kind of guy who lived life to the fullest every day.I hope I did him proud.The six-foot, 180-pound Waters led the CFL in scoring (192 points), field goals tried (52), made (47), punting (47.7 yards) and kickoffs (65.2 yards). Hajrullahu enjoyed a solid rookie campaign, making 40-of-46 field goals (87 per cent) while posting a 43.8-yard punting average 63.5-yard kickoff average.Jones was honoured for a second straight year after being named the CFLs top rookie in 2013. The six-foot-two, 318-pound Jones, a 23-year-old native of Weyburn, Sask., earned the top lineman honour by a 41-21 margin over Jeff Perrett of the Montreal Alouettes.Jones played all 18 regular-season games with Calgary and anchored an offensive line that allowed a league-low 26 sacks. The Stampeders also averaged a CFL-best 144 yards rushing per game but Jones feels he can continue to improve.I just know theres a lot of areas I can keep getting better, he said. Thats why I keep coming to work every day. McCoil was the top rookie by a 48-14 margin over Toronto defensive lineman Tristan Okpalaugo. McCoil, 23, scored three defensive TDs this season and also finished tied for the league lead in interceptions with six and had a team-high 67 tackles. But McCoil accepted the award with a heavy heart as Wednesday he attended his 58-year-old grandmothers funeral. McCoil was planning to bring her to Thursdays awards banquet but she died Nov. 18.She was the rock of the family
