2022 Player Outlook
Ward hit .250 in 2021 with eight home runs, 33 RBI, and 33 runs scored. He made some nice strides at the dish, too, posting an 8.4 percent walk rate and cutting his strikeout rate to a career low 23.2 percent. Ward displayed some impressive prowess against southpaws last season, posting an .850 OPS across 77 plate appearances. Ward might open the year in the minors, but with a hot start, he should re-join the team in a lefty masher role. He shouldn't be on your fantasy radar in draft season, but DFS owners will likely want to be privy of his call up for split advantages.
