    Rockies spring training report: Bud Black unconcerned with closer Daniel Bard's World Baseball Classic struggles

    Symptoms of the yips returned for Daniel Bard in the World Baseball Classic, but Rockies manager Bud Black isn't worried about his closer. Bard was erratic in his outing for Team USA in the quarterfinals of the WBC over the weekend.

It was the sort of outing that had Rockies fans wondering if the 2020 MLB Comeback Player of the Year, who posted a reliable 1.79 ERA in 57 games with 34 saves last year, is struggling with the same yips that kept him off a big-league mound from 2014-19.
