  • Angels' Taylor Ward: Avoids arbitration

    Ward and the Angels agreed on a one-year, $2.75 million contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The 29-year-old had a career year in 2022, batting .281 with 23 homers, 65 RBI, 73 runs and five stolen bases over 495 at-bats in 135 games last season. Ward will head into 2023 as the Angels' starting left fielder and penciled into a prime spot in the batting order.

  • Angels' Taylor Ward: Keeps mashing Monday

    Ward went 2-for-5 with two doubles, a run and an RBI in Monday's extra-inning loss versus the Athletics.

Ward has had a streaky season, but he is finishing on an upswing, which is validated by his near-elite Statcast metrics. He should be a viable option for fantasy managers in 2023.
