Player Profile: Luke Bard

I have one card of Luke Bard, from 2012 Donruss Elite Extra Edition.

Playing career: Luke Bard was a first round pick of the Twins in 2012. He struggled with injuries from the outset. He pitched in seven games in 2012, twelves games in 2013 and missed the entire 2014 season.

Where he is now: Finally healthy in 2015, Bard had an excellent first full professional season. In 28 relief appearances at Class-A Cedar Rapids, he went 7-1 with a 2.41 ERA.

Interesting fact: His brother Daniel Bard has pitched in the major leagues.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Luke Bard, ahead of Luke Barden, a composer. Another prominent Luke Bard is a research meteorologist.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bobby Basham.
