Angels' Taylor Ward: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.

Ward had been out of the lineup in two of the last five games, but he was still relatively effective and went 5-for-11 with a home run, two doubles, three RBI and three runs across his last four appearances. He'll return to the minors after Justin Upton (back) was reinstated from the injured list Thursday, and Adam Eaton could see increased playing time in right field going forward.

Angels' Taylor Ward: Late add to Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (finger) is starting in right field and batting seventh Tuesday against the Red Sox, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

Ward was originally out of the lineup and was expected to be available off the bench Tuesday, but he's apparently feeling well enough to enter the starting nine after missing one game with the finger issue. The 27-year-old is 7-for-16 with three doubles, an RBI, two runs and two walks in his past seven games.

Ward exited Sunday's game against the Orioles because of a right index finger injury and he's now set to be out of the starting lineup for the second straight game.

Ward's right index finger is being examined after he left Sunday's win over the Blue Jays in the bottom of the sixth inning, but manager Joe Maddon didn't sound too concerned about the outfielder's status after the game. The 27-year-old should be considered day-to-day for now.

Angels' Taylor Ward: Collects three hits, three RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, a run and three RBI in a victory over the Tigers on Friday.

Ward knocked in a run with a third-inning double then plated two more with another double in the sixth. In doing so, he extended his current hit streak to eight games, during which he is slashing .375/.459/.594 with four doubles, one homer, nine RBI and six runs. With Mike Trout (calf) projected to be out until after the All-Star break, Ward should continue to see plenty of starts in the outfield. If he continues to swing a hot bat, he could cement a starting role over fellow outfielder Juan Lagares after Trout returns to action.

Angels' Taylor Ward: Launches grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Angels' Taylor Ward: Reaches base three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 10-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

Ward notched his second straight multi-hit game after he singled and scored in the second and later led off the sixth with a double before scoring his second run of the day. He also didn't strike out, which is encouraging considering he had been punched out 15 times over his last 10 games coming into Sunday. Overall, the 27-year-old is slashing .237/.318/.439 with six home runs, 19 RBI, 20 runs scored and a stolen base in 130 plate appearances.

Angels' Taylor Ward: Cranks sixth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward took Josh Staumont deep in the eighth inning to extend the Angels' lead. The 27-year-old has two long balls in his last four games. However, he has struggled getting on base at times, slashing .224/.300/.439 in 111 plate appearances. He's struck out 27 percent of the time, which is not good, but it's also the lowest rate of his career.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Angels' Taylor Ward: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward will sit Saturday against Oakland.

Ward sits for just the second time in 24 games since getting called up in early May. His regular role is more a function of the Angels' lack of alternatives than of his own talent, however, as he's hitting just .205/.263/.411 on the year. Jose Rojas starts in right field in his absence.

Ward has four homers on the season and has been seeing the ball well of late, as he has recorded hits in five of his last six contests.
