Daniel Bard has been designated for assignment. Two immediate SoSH comments pretty much sum this move up: "Holy shit" and "Sad but inevitable".

The following players were added to the roster: newly-acquired infielder John McDonald, outfielder Quintin Berry, Brandon Snyder, Ryan Lavarnway, and Rubby De La Rosa.
