Bard comes into 2021 as the Rockies' presumptive closer, after he came out of a two-year retirement to pitch in the majors for the first time since 2013. Bard's control problems, which derailed his career, were largely solved, and his 3.65 ERA and 1.30 WHIP were more than passable for a Colorado closer. Mychal Givens remains, and Scott Oberg will try to pitch effectively after undergoing thoracic outlet surgery, but if Bard can maintain his control, he'll likely earn and hold the closer's job.

Daniel Bard, Rockies avoid arbitration

The Colorado Rockies and RHP Daniel Bard have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.925 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

The 35-year-old was recently named National League Comeback Player of the Year. Bard's 2020 season was his first in the majors since 2013. It was a remarkable story and he even wound up earning six saves for Colorado. It'll be important to monitor the Rockies' bullpen moves this offseason to get a feel for whether or not Bard has a shot at any saves in 2021.
