  • Taylor Ward Lifted During Sunday's Game

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (leg) was pulled for a pinch runner during Sunday's game against the Atlanta Braves. Interim manager Phil Nevin told reporters that Ward is fine and he was dealing with leg cramps. It sounds like the Angels were being cautious since they were blowing out the Braves anyway. Fantasy managers should consider Ward day-to-day, but he is expected to play during Monday's game against the Kansas City Royals.

  • Taylor Ward Hitless During Tuesday's Loss

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward went without a hit across three at-bats in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Miami Marlins. The one positive for the 28-year-old was a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning. The contest brought down Ward's line to .303/.393/.540, and he also has 12 HRs, 42 runs, 33 RBI, and two stolen bases over 58 games. Despite the great numbers, he's struggled in his last 30 games, hitting .236 with three homers. It's the first season Ward has been truly fantasy-relevant, so managers should make sure he doesn't revert to his career norms.

  • Taylor Ward Activated And Starting Tuesday

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (hamstring, neck) was activated from the injured list on Tuesday and is in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Tony Gonsolin, playing in right field and batting leadoff. Fantasy managers will want to get Ward back into their starting lineups immediately, as he's been great this year with a .333/.443/.644 slash line with a 1.087 OPS, 10 home runs, 26 RBI, 30 runs scored and a stolen base in 158 plate appearances over 38 games played. The 28-year-old has been out since June 3 with a sore hamstring and a neck stinger, but he'll immediately return to an everyday role in the Angels outfield.

  • Angels Place Taylor Ward On IL, Recall Jo Adell

    The Angels have announced that outfielder Taylor Ward has been placed on the 10-day IL, categorizing his injury as a mild right hamstring strain. The move is retroactive to June 4. Fellow outfielder Jo Adell has been recalled to take his place on the roster. Ward was one of the most pleasant surprises of the…

  • Taylor Ward To Injured List, Jo Adell Back In Big Leagues

    The Los Angeles Angels placed outfielder Taylor Ward (hamstring) on the injured list with a right hamstring strain on Sunday and recalled outfielder Jo Adell from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move. Ward suffered the injury on Friday. It remains to be seen how long he'll need before returning to the Halos outfield. Before the injury, the 28-year-old had been excellent with a .333/.443/.644 slash line, a 1.087 OPS, 10 home runs, 26 RBI, 30 runs scored and one stolen base in 158 plate appearances over 38 games. Juan Lagares played right field on Saturday, but Adell should see most of the starts there now that he's back with the club. Adell has struggled to a .207 average with 10 homers, 41 RBI and three steals in 92 games over the last three seasons with the Angels, and he hit only .222/.341/.597 with a .938 OPS, six homers and 15 RBI in 19 games with Salt Lake. Adell is worth adding in deep mixed leagues for his power/speed upside.

  • Taylor Ward Dealing With Hamstring Tightness

    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward is dealing with right hamstring tightness. Ward left Friday night's game after attempting a diving catch on a ball during the fifth inning. He was able to get back to his feet and chase down the ball but was removed from the game shortly thereafter. Depending on the severity of the injury and how his hamstring responds on Saturday, Ward could possibly be looking at a stay on the injured list. Look for the Angels to offer more information on Saturday after they see how he's feeling.

  • Taylor Ward Leaves With Injury Friday

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward left Friday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies after injuring himself while attempting a diving catch in the fifth inning. Ward went down awkwardly while trying to make the catch after going 1-for-3 in the game before the injury. He was replaced in the outfield by Juan Lagares. Ward is hitting .333 with 10 homers, 30 runs, and 26 RBI on the season. Look for the Angels to update his status following Friday night's game.

  • Taylor Ward Returns, Shohei Ohtani Out Friday

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (shoulder) is back in the starting lineup on Friday, while designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (back) is on the bench against Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Alek Manoah. Ward is serving as the DH and hitting leadoff after entering the game as a pinch-hitter on Thursday. The 28-year-old should be returned to all fantasy lineups in single-year formats, as he's hitting .367/.477/.706 with nine home runs, 23 RBI, 27 runs scored and one stolen base in 109 at-bats. Ohtani left his start on the mound on Thursday due to back stiffness, and he should be considered day-to-day for now. Last year's American League MVP is slashing .249/.318/.446 with nine home runs, 29 RBI, 31 runs scored and seven stolen bases in 45 games at the plate.

  • Taylor Ward Enters As Pinch-Hitter On Thursday

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (neck, shoulder) made an appearance as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays. He entered the game in the eighth inning, coming in for Shohei Ohtani (back), and he went on to line out in his only at-bat. This was Ward's first game action since last Friday, when he collided with the outfield wall while making a catch. He injured his neck and shoulder on the play and has been day-to-day over the past week. The 28-year-old has been fantastic at the plate this year, slashing .367/.477/.706 with nine home runs, 23 RBI and 27 runs.

  • Taylor Ward Sitting Against Blue Jays

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (neck, shoulder) is not in the starting lineup on Thursday night against the Toronto Blue Jays. It will be the fifth straight game that Ward has missed as he deals with neck and shoulder issues, although his MRI exam came back clean on Wednesday. If the 28-year-old misses any more time moving forward, there's a chance he could land on the injured list. He has been excellent for fantasy managers in 2022 with a .370/.481/.713 slash line, a 1.194 OPS, nine home runs, 23 RBI, 27 runs scored and one stolen base in 108 at-bats for the Halos. Juan Lagares is in right field and is batting seventh on Thursday against Blue Jays left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu. Lagares will be making his season debut and has very little DFS upside.

  • Taylor Ward To Miss Fifth Straight Game

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (shoulder) is being held out of the starting lineup for the fifth straight game on Wednesday. The MRI came back clean on Tuesday, but it appears the Angels are going to remain cautious. Possibly, Ward will be used off the bench during Wednesday's contest against the Texas Rangers. The hope is that Ward will be able to return to the starting lineup at some point this week.

  • MRI Comes Back Clean For Taylor Ward

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (neck, shoulder) underwent an MRI on Tuesday, which came back clean. He is available to pinch-hit in Tuesday's game against the Texas Rangers, though he hasn't been cleared to throw and cannot yet play the field. The 28-year-old has no structural damage in his neck or shoulder, but his opportunities will be limited with Shohei Ohtani locked in as the team's primary designated hitter. Ward is off to an incredible start, slashing .370/.481/.713 with nine home runs, 23 RBI, 27 runs scored, and a stolen base over 131 plate appearances in 2022.

  • Taylor Ward To Miss His Third Straight Game Tuesday

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (neck) is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Texas Rangers. Ward suffered a neck injury after colliding with the outfield wall this past Friday and he's been held out of game action ever since. Tyler Wade is making his third straight start in right field for Tuesday's game. It's certainly concerning that Ward wasn't able to return after the team's day off on Monday. There's been no indication that Ward will require a stint on the injured list, so we're still considering him day-to-day for now.

  • Taylor Ward Will Undergo MRI

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (neck, shoulder) is set to undergo an MRI on Monday. He crashed into the wall during Friday's game and hasn't played since then. The 28-year-old outfielder said he can play through the issue and won't require a trip to the injured list. However, the Angels want to be safe, so they'll have him undergo an MRI. That being said, fantasy managers will hopefully only be without Ward for another game or two. There should be another update on his status after his MRI on Monday.

  • Taylor Ward Passes Concussion Protocols

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward (head) was removed from Friday's game against the Oakland Athletics after colliding with the outfield wall while making a catch. He has passed through the league's concussion protocols. Ward described his injury in Friday's game as a "stinger." According to Angels beat writer Rhett Bollinger, there's a chance Ward could be available to play in Saturday's game. The Angels haven't announced their lineup for Saturday as of this writing. It's likely that Ward will not be included in the starting lineup, but it certainly sounds like he won't be missing much time at all.

  • Taylor Ward Exits With An Injury On Friday

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward was removed in the ninth inning of Friday's game against the Oakland Athletics with an undisclosed injury. The 28-year-old ran into the wall in right field while making a catch. He was looked at by a trainer for a few minutes before walking off the field with the trainer. After the game, Angels manager Joe Maddon stated that Ward was being evaluated and that he wasn't sure of what the nature of the injury was. Ward is off to a phenomenal start to the 2022 season, slashing .370/.481/.713 with nine home runs, 23 RBI and 27 runs over just 30 games. He should be considered day-to-day at this point until we hear more.
