Buster Olney checks in with a video blog (above) this morning where he talks about reinforcements that could be on the way for the Red Sox
-- He focuses on Daniel Bard, saying the Sox are hopeful that Bard has turned a corner in Pawtucket. For more on Bard, check out Joe McDonald’s report from his last outing in Pawtucket.
-- Olney says that the Sox hope Bard can come back up later in July. He’ll be part of a wave of players returning to the lineup, including Andrew Bailey, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford. Once the Sox get everyone back and healthy, Olney says they’ll be able to really evaluate if they can get back into the AL East pennant race.
