The Red Sox officially welcomed Daniel Bard back to the big leagues, adding him to the 25-man active roster before Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim, Calif.

To make room on the roster, the Sox sent Wednesday's starter, Zach Stewart, back to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bard was demoted to Pawtucket on June 5 after struggling as a starter.

"I'm a reliever," the 27-year-old right-hander said Wednesday. "I think that's all I know right now."
