  • Mariners' Mike Ford: Selected to MLB roster

    Seattle selected Ford's contract from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

    The 30-year-old joins the Mariners after slashing .302/.427/.605 with 13 home runs, 11 doubles and 56 RBI across 49 games (211 plate appearances) this season at the Triple-A level. Ford could get semi-regular looks at DH, though fantasy expectations should be tempered. He holds a career .201/.301/.387 slash line in the bigs.

  • Mariners' Mike Ford: Hits safely in debut

    Ford, called up from Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the day, went 1-for-3 in a loss to the Rangers on Friday.

    The 30-year-old drew the start at designated hitter and was able to contribute a single in his first taste of big-league action this season. Ford generated a lackluster .206/.302/.313 slash line across 149 plate appearances with a whopping four major-league teams in 2022, and even with his success thus far this minor-league season in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, it remains to be seen how much he can contribute outside of the occasional power numbers.

  • Mariners' Mike Ford: To be called up Friday

    The Mariners will call up Ford from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Ford forced Seattle's hand by exercising the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract Thursday. The 30-year-old journeyman might prove to be a solid addition to the big-league roster, even as a bench bat, seeing as he's delivered a robust .302/.427/.605 slash line with 13 homers and 56 RBI through 49 games this season at Tacoma. As a left-handed hitter, he could power his way into a significant share of the platoon at designated hitter.

  • Mariners' Mike Ford: Exercising opt-out clause

    Ford has exercised the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Mariners, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Seattle will have 48 hours to either promote Ford or grant him his release. Ford has crushed Triple-A pitching with Tacoma this season, posting a 1.031 OPS with 13 home runs over 49 games.

  • Mariners' Mike Ford: Thriving at Tacoma

    Ford sports a .337/.439/.730 slash line with 16 extra-base hits and 39 RBI across 107 plate appearances over 24 games with Triple-A Tacoma.

    The 30-year-old has struggled with big-league arms after an encouraging initial 50-game cup of coffee with the Yankees back in 2019, when he posted a .259 average and .909 OPS across 163 plate appearances. However, Ford has been a terror with the Rainiers during his stints with them over the last two seasons, and his aforementioned impressive 2023 numbers are accompanied by a 14.0 percent walk rate and minuscule 11.2 percent strikeout rate. Ford's age and the fact he's been almost exclusively limited to playing first base and filling the designated hitter role throughout his long professional career dampens his overall prospects, but he could potentially get another crack at the majors at some point this season if he continues his current offensive tear down on the farm.

  • Mariners' Mike Ford: Shifted to minor-league camp

    The Mariners reassigned Ford to minor-league camp Friday.

    Ford put together a decent spring training, going 5-for-25 at the plate with six RBI. He will likely return to Triple-A for 2023, where he slashed .248/.380/.363 over 137 plate appearances last season with four different organizations.

  • Mariners' Mike Ford: Inks minor-league contract

    Ford signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday.

    It's unclear whether he's received an invitation to major-league spring training, although it seems likely. Ford saw brief action in the majors with four different teams in 2022 -- the Mariners being one of them -- and had a .615 OPS with three homers over 149 plate appearances.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Outrighted to minors

    The Angels outrighted Ford to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

    Ford was one of three Angels recently designated for assignment to clear waivers, with pitcher Mike Mayers and outfielder Magneuris Sierra also getting outrighted to Triple-A on Sunday. The 30-year-old Ford is eligible to become a free agent this offseason and may have to settle for a minor-league deal after slashing .206/.302/.313 over 149 plate appearances in the majors this season between stops with the Angels, Mariners, Giants and Atlanta.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: DFA'd by Halos

    Ford was designated for assignment by the Angels on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Ford has been a lineup regular at first base for the past month, but he's been removed from the 40-man roster after he posted a .231/.293/.374 slash line with three home runs and five RBI in 28 games for the Angels. Anthony Rendon (wrist) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move, though the Halos will be down one player for the next five games while Rendon serves a suspension.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Out of Sunday's lineup

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Racks up three hits

    Ford went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.

    Ford has endured a difficult September, hitting just .208 (40-for-48) even after Tuesday's three-hit game. This was his third multi-hit effort of the month. The 30-year-old first baseman is up to a .214/.318/.321 slash line with three home runs, 10 RBI, eight runs scored and three doubles through 45 contests, 23 of which have come with the Angels. Despite the poor hitting of late, he's still receiving more playing time than Matt Thaiss at first base.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: On bench again Friday

    Ford is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Mariners.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Day off Wednesday

    Ford isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Guardians, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Goes yard Tuesday

    Ford went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Tigers.

    Ford slugged one of the Angels' three long balls on the night off Tigers starter Eduardo Rodriguez. Since getting a call-up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Aug. 25, Ford is getting on base at a .357 clip while leaving the yard three times. He'll start at first base and will bat sixth in Wednesday's series finale and looks to have a hold on an everyday role for the time being.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Absent from Monday's lineup

    Ford isn't starting Monday against the Tigers, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Goes yard again Tuesday

    Ford went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Yankees.

    For the second time in as many games, Ford hit a homer against his former team. The first baseman also has four multi-hit efforts in his last six games, with two homers in that span. For the season, he's slashed .226/.351/.339 with two long balls, seven RBI, four runs scored and a double through 72 plate appearances across stints with four different teams. He's settled in as the Angels' primary first baseman, a role he could hold for the remainder of the 2022 season.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Hammers homer against former team

    Ford went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Monday's 4-3 win over the Yankees.

    Ford's solo shot to right field in the fourth inning tied the score and served as a bit of revenge against the club that DFA'd him last June. He bounced around to five different organizations -- including serving two different stints with Seattle -- before finding work with the Angels last week, and he's settled in as the team's primary first baseman. Ford's homer Monday was his first in 27 games this season, and he's gone 6-for-19 through five contests with Los Angeles.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Settles in as primary first baseman

    Ford will start at first base and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports.

    Ford will pick up his fourth consecutive start after going 2-for-11 with two walks in his first three games with the Angels following his call-up Thursday from Triple-A Salt Lake. With Jared Walsh (thoracic outlet syndrome) done for the season, Ford should serve as the Angels' primary first baseman the rest of the way.

  • Angels' Mike Ford: Notches two hits in Angels debut

    Ford went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Rays on Thursday.

    Ford signed with the Angels on Wednesday and was brought up to the big club the following day. He struck out in his first at-bat but followed with consecutive singles before fanning again in his final plate appearance. Ford should see plenty of playing time with Jared Walsh out for the season after being diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome.
