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.

Taylor Ward powers Angels past Rangers

Taylor Ward went 2-for-5 with a home run and an RBI in the Angels' 9-3 victory over the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included a crucial home run that contributed to the team's robust offensive display. Ward's season has been solid, maintaining a .273 batting average with consistent power, as evidenced by his nine home runs. His ability to contribute significantly in games like today's highlights his value in fantasy lineups, especially in categories like home runs and RBI. However, his strikeout rate remains a concern, potentially limiting his batting average upside. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his performance closely, particularly in matchups that favor his power-hitting capabilities.

Taylor Ward Powers Angels Past Cardinals

Taylor Ward went 2-for-5 with a home run and an RBI in the Angels' 7-2 victory over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included a crucial home run that contributed to the team's win. With this game, Ward continues to maintain a solid .269 batting average for the season, and his power numbers are holding steady with eight home runs. While his strikeout rate remains a concern at 0.202, his ability to contribute in multiple categories, including home runs and RBIs, keeps him relevant in fantasy lineups. Ward's consistent playing time and spot in the lineup should continue to provide opportunities for production, making him a viable option in most fantasy formats.
