Taylor Ward optioned to Triple-A on Thursday

The Los Angeles Angels optioned outfielder Taylor Ward to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Ward will return to the minors, and veteran outfielder Justin Upton (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 27-year-old slashed .240/.322/.426 with eight home runs, 31 RBI, 31 runs scored, and a stolen base across 233 plate appearances since being called up on May 5. Fantasy managers can move on from Ward in standard leagues.

Taylor Ward comes triple shy of the cycle in 9-4 win over Mariners

Taylor Ward went 3-for-4 with a single, a double, a home run, three RBIs, and two runs scored en route to a 9-4 win over the Mariners on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Saturday marked Ward's third three-hit game of the 2021 campaign, a good sign for a hitter who had no hits over his last 11 at-bats. Ward now has eight homers and 31 RBIs on the year, but with the acquisition of Adam Eaton, Ward's unpredictable playing time makes him a risky fantasy option.

Taylor Ward (finger) day-to-day

Angels OF Taylor Ward is day-to-day after leaving Sunday's game with a finger injury.

Fantasy Impact

Manager Joe Maddon doesn't think it'll require an IL stint. It's unclear if Ward will play on Monday, though.

Taylor Ward hits sixth home run of the season in 8-1 win over Royals

Taylor Ward went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts en route to an 8-1 win over Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact

Ward hit his sixth homer of 2021 to go along with his 17th and 18th RBIs of the campaign. However, with a slash line of merely .224/.300/.439, as well as his future uncertainty when it comes to playing time, Ward is best to remain on waivers.

Taylor Ward hits fifth homer of the year in 12-5 win over the Mariners

Taylor Ward went 2-for-4 with a single, a home run, and two RBIs in a Halos win over the Mariners on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Ward has had a fantastic month of June so far, slashing .333/.385/.583 with an OPS of .968. However, before Ward can be considered relevant for fantasy purposes, we'll need to see a continuation of this sort of performance throughout the remainder of the season.
