Taylor Ward swings hard in Angels' narrow loss

Taylor Ward went 2-for-6 with a home run, a double, one run scored, and one RBI in the Angels' 3-2 loss to the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance, featuring a mix of power and contact, is somewhat reflective of his season thus far. Ward's ability to contribute both homers and doubles is valuable, but his high strikeout rate (0.211) continues to be a concern for fantasy managers. Despite this, his wOBA of 0.344 indicates that he can be a productive fantasy asset when he does make contact. Ward's consistency at the plate, evidenced by his .275 batting average and steady power numbers (10 HRs, 28 RBIs), makes him a viable option in most fantasy formats, particularly in leagues that reward extra-base hits. However, his limited base-stealing ability and high strikeout frequency might cap his ceiling.
