Daniel Bard continues to struggle and has been demoted to Double-A.
Daniel Bard – D
Bard continues to struggle with command and was sent to Double-A to try to find what made him special from 2009-2011.
Allen Webster – A
Webster was once compared to Derek Lowe, but after his stellar performance in spring training that comparison doesn’t do him justice. Webster looks capable of being a top-of-the-rotation starter in a year or so.
Rubby De La Rosa – B-
De La Rosa had an up and down spring, but he is healthy and showed flashes of greatness.
Stephen Drew – D
After struggling at the plate, an injury ended his chance of being the Opening Day shortstop. Drew needs to stay healthy if he wants to turn a one-year prove-it contract into a long-term deal in the offseason.
Ryan Lavarnway – D
After being a much-hyped prospect the last two years, Lavarnway continued to struggle and was optioned to the minors to start the season.
