Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Rangers have signed pitcher Daniel Bard to a minor league deal.

Bard, 28, spent the last five seasons with the Red Sox, showing promise in 2010 and ’11 out of the bullpen, but has battled control issues more recently. He is currently on his way back from thoracic outlet surgery.

The Cubs selected Bard off waivers from the Red Sox in September last season, but non-tendered him last month.
