RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Taylor Ward.
The Angels surprised many when they selected Ward with the 26th overall pick in the 2015 draft, but the early returns on the catcher out of Fresno State have been excellent. Ward slashed .348/.457/.438 with three home runs and six steals (on nine attempts) in 56 games across rookie ball and Low-A. This came as a very pleasant surprise, as Ward was touted for his plus arm behind the plate and the bat was supposed to lag behind the rest of the profile. Entering his age-22 season, Ward could actually move relatively fast for a catcher, as he has not yet shown any weaknesses. He will probably start the year back at Low-A, but could quickly receive a promotion to High-A if he continues to show an advanced approach at the plate.
