    Bard is currently on a 1 year, $4.4M contract this year. Even assuming some regression on the season and finishes with 25 saves, 2.50 ERA, 1.10 whip - what do we think he could get on the market, given that performance and his age? 2/$12M with a team option for a 3rd season?

    Jarren Duran: Improving in His Second Shot
