Rays' Mike Ford: Traded to Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford was traded from the Yankees to the Rays on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations and a player to be named later.

The Rays have a well-earned reputation for being smart in their acquisitions, so it's often wise to wonder if their interest in a player indicates there's something more than he's shown thus far. That said, there's a big gap between the .199/.301/.422 line Ford has produced in 319 career big-league plate appearances and what he'd need to play a meaningful role. He'll join Triple-A Durham for now, and the Rays have plenty of bats to fill the first base and designated hitter spots, so there doesn't appear to be a clear path to a fantasy-relevant role for the 28-year-old.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford was designated for assignment Saturday.

He got a brief audition at first base when Luke Voit (oblique) landed on the injured list, but he was then passed by Chris Gittens in the pecking order. Ford hit .133 with three home runs and a 23:11 K:BB in 60 at-bats with the big club.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Ford was 0-for-3 with three strikeouts Tuesday before being replaced by a pinch hitter, dropping his slash line to .133/.278/.283 over 22 games this season. Miguel Andujar and DJ LeMahieu should work at first base for New York until Luke Voit (oblique) can return from the injured list.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Takes seat vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford is not in the starting lineup Monday against the Rays.

With lefty Rich Hill taking the ball for the Rays, Ford will sit for the second straight game. DJ LeMahieu will play first base with Rougned Odor manning the keystone.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Not starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford isn't starting Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against Toronto.

Ford started the first game of the twin bill and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. DJ LeMahieu will shift to first base while Tyler Wade enters the lineup at the keystone.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Launches third long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's 7-0 win over the White Sox.

Ford mashed a massive 447-foot solo shot in the sixth inning to pad an already-substantial Yankees lead. The homer was Ford's third of the campaign and first since April 28. He went 1-for-26 between April 29 and May 16 but has shown improvement over his past three games, going 4-for-8 with a pair of walks.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Smacks second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Orioles.

Ford opened the scoring with a second-inning solo shot off Orioles starter Dean Kremer. The 28-year-old Ford has seen only limited playing time in 2021 with two homers, three RBI and three runs scored in five games. He's only collected three hits and three walks in 21 plate appearances -- good for a mediocre .286 on-base percentage.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Not in Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford isn't starting Monday's game against Baltimore.

Ford homered in Sunday's loss to Cleveland, but he'll retreat to the bench for the third time in the last four games. DJ LeMahieu will take over at first base while Rougned Odor starts at the keystone.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Homers against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford went 1-for-4 with a home run and a strikeout in Sunday's 7-3 loss to Cleveland.

Ford didn't appear in either of the last two games, but he hit his first home run of the season in the fourth inning of Sunday's contest. Across four games this year, Ford has hit .133 with two runs, two RBI and three strikeouts.

April 24, 2021 03:40 PM
Yankees' Mike Ford: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland.

Ford had started three consecutive games after he was called up by the Yankees on Tuesday, but he'll now be out of the lineup for a second straight contest. DJ LeMahieu will start at first base while Rougned Odor takes over at second base.

April 21, 2021 03:36 PM
Yankees' Mike Ford: Awarded second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford will start at first base and bat sixth Wednesday against Atlanta.

Prior to Ford's call-up Tuesday, the Yankees had been using DJ LeMahieu as their primary first baseman while Luke Voit (knee) remains on the injured list. That opened up the keystone for Rougned Odor, but his time as an everyday player could be coming to a close in light of his 3-for-24 start to his Yankees career. After going hitless with a walk and an RBI across four plate appearances in Tuesday's 3-1 win, Ford will pick up a second straight start against a right-handed pitcher (Ian Anderson), while Odor heads to the bench.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Joins big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford was recalled by the Yankees on Tuesday.

The Yankees need another first baseman due to Luke Voit's knee injury and Jay Bruce's retirement. Ford has been decent enough in limited action at the highest level, but the fact that the Yankees turned first to Bruce and not to him indicates they don't think too highly of him. He looked good in 50 games in 2019 before struggling significantly in 29 games last year, giving him a career .217/.308/.461 slash line with 14 homers in 79 contests.

Yankees' Mike Ford: On radar for call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford is in consideration for a promotion to the big-league roster from the Yankees' alternate training site, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Ford spent a day with the big club April 9 but didn't get into a game and was subsequently sent back down. With Jay Bruce retiring after Sunday's game, Ford would be a logical candidate to fill his roster spot, but the Yankees have not yet made a corresponding move. The team is off Monday, so it has some time to finalize the decision.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Sent to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford was optioned to the Yankees' alternate training site after Friday's loss to the Rays.

Ford was recalled Friday to serve as a bench option after Gio Urshela was placed on the COVID-19 IL due to side effects from the vaccine. However, Ford didn't appear in Friday's loss and will now head back to alternate camp.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford was recalled from the alternate site prior to Friday's game against the Rays, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

This will likely be a short stay in the majors for Ford, as this was the corresponding move to Gio Urshela landing on the COVID list due to side effects from the vaccine. Ford will serve as a left-handed bench option for manager Aaron Boone.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

Ford struggled in the majors last year but worked with the major-league coaching staff this spring. He went 3-for-19 with a double, two RBI, one walk and three strikeouts over nine spring games this year but will now prepare for the minor-league season.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Included on wild-card roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford will be part of the Yankees' roster for the AL Wild Card Round against Cleveland.

Ford had very little success at the plate this season, hitting .135/.226/.270 in 84 plate appearances. He'll presumably be limited to pinch-hit duty because starting first baseman Luke Voit led the entire league with 22 homers.

September 15, 2020 06:08 PM
Yankees' Mike Ford: Sent down by Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford was optioned to the Yankees' alternate training site Tuesday.

Ford was on the major-league roster since the start of the season, but he saw a drop in playing time recently as he was on the bench for each of the last seven games. With Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) and Gio Urshela (elbow) returning from the 10-day injured list, Ford's services were no longer needed at the big-league level.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays.

Though the Yankees' designated hitter spot remains open with Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) on the injured list, Ford hasn't been able to lock down a full-time role, as manager Aaron Boone has instead opted for a rotation of players at the position. Ford will be on the bench for the third time in four games while Aaron Hicks gets a turn at DH.

Yankees' Mike Ford: Plates three in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an RBI single in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Red Sox.

Ford opened the scoring in the first when he knocked in Gio Urshela with a single. In the third, Ford went deep off Red Sox starter Chris Mazza. The 28-year-old Ford is up to two homers, 10 RBI, three runs scored and a .194 batting average in 11 games this season.
