Angels' Taylor Ward: Reaches base three times in debut
Ward started at third base and went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Padres.
Ward immediately entered the starting lineup upon his promotion, carrying over the success he experienced in the minors this season (.352/.442/.537 in 60 games with Triple-A Salt Lake). Kaleb Cowart has been operating as the Halos' primary third baseman recently, but his offensive woes (.159/.269/.244) likely prompted the rookie's callup. Ward is worth consideration in a lot of formats, assuming he receives regular playing time down the stretch.
