Jared Walsh: Hits free agency
Walsh elected free agency Monday.
It's the second time since early August that Walsh has been outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster. The 30-year-old posted a lowly .494 OPS over 39 games in 2023 and simply hasn't been the same player since his breakout 2021 season.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jared Walsh: Optioned to Salt Lake
The Angels optioned Walsh to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.
Mickey Moniak's (back) return from the 10-day IL will force Walsh back to the minors after he was selected from Triple-A on Sept. 14. Walsh has slashed just .135/.158/.378 through 38 plate appearances across 11 games in that span, and he will likely need to bounce back in a big way next spring in order to carve out a role for himself in the majors....

Walsh is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against Twins, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Angels' Jared Walsh: Belts fourth homer
Walsh went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Twins in a loss Friday.
Walsh took Minnesota starter Pablo Lopez deep to right field for a two-run shot in the fifth inning. It was Walsh's fourth long ball of the campaign, three of which have come since returning Sept. 15 from a nearly three-month stay in the minors. Aside from the power output, the veteran has struggled since rejoining the Angels, slashing .208/.240/.583 with a 52 percent strikeout rate and no walks over 25 plate appearances.... See More ...

Angels' Jared Walsh: Goes yard again Saturday
Walsh went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Tigers.
Walsh hit a homer as a pinch hitter Friday and went yard again Saturday in his first two games back since he was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake. He got the start in right field and played there for the full game Saturday. The 30-year-old is slashing a meager .139/.253/.319 with three homers, eight RBI and seven runs scored over 83 major-league plate appearances, so it's unlikely he gets a full-time role over the last two weeks of the season....

Angels' Jared Walsh: Returns to majors with long ball
Walsh hit a solo home run in his only at-bat during a loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Walsh was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday and began Friday's contest on the bench. He was called on to pinch hit in the ninth inning and smoked a 435-foot solo homer to right-center field. The long ball was just the second in the majors this season for Walsh, who battled insomnia and migraines early in the campaign and has slashed .132/.253/.279 over 79 plate appearances....

Angels' Jared Walsh: Selected from Salt Lake
The Angels selected Walsh's contract from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.
Walsh was sent outright to Triple-A at the beginning of August after slashing just .119/.244/.224 through 78 plate appearances in the majors. Walsh hasn't been spectacular in the minors either, but he'll return to give the Angels depth at first base and maybe in the corner outfield to close the season.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jared Walsh: Outrighted to Triple-A
The Angels outrighted Walsh to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.
Walsh passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment last Thursday. The 30-year-old former All-Star missed the first several weeks of the 2023 season due to migraine headaches and batted just .119/.244/.224 in 28 major-league games before being optioned to the minors in late June. He'll now remain at Salt Lake.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jared Walsh: Dropped from 40-man roster
Walsh was designated for assignment by the Angels on Thursday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Walsh is gone from the 40-man roster in a string of moves following Wednesday night's trade for Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez. The 29-year-old first baseman was an All-Star in 2021 and posted an overall .850 OPS with 29 homers and 98 RBI across 118 games that season, but he drastically regressed in 2022 and had slashed just .119/.244/.224 through 28 major-league games this year while battling migraine headaches. He was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake in late June and was batting .132 with a .624 OPS in 66 plate appearances there since the demotion.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jared Walsh: Optioned to minors
Walsh was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Walsh has struggled mightily across 78 plate appearances this season, hitting just .119/.244/.224. As a result, he had lost a regular role against right-handed pitching and had started only two of the Angels' last nine games. He missed a significant part of the campaign with insomnia and migraines, but he'll look to regain his rhythm at the plate with Salt Lake.... See More ... See Less

Walsh homered in his only at-bat in a 5-2 victory versus the Royals on Sunday.
Walsh began the game on the bench again Sunday -- the fifth time in Los Angeles' past six contests that he hasn't started. However, he entered the matchup to play first base in the sixth inning and belted a solo shot to right field in his only plate appearance in the ninth. It was a rare positive at-bat for Walsh this season, as he's slashing a meager .125/.253/.234 with a 32.0 percent strikeout rate over 75 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jared Walsh: On bench Saturday

Walsh had originally been slated to ride the pine for a second straight day, but he'll be pressed into action after Gio Urshela (back) got scratched.
