Jo Adell called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday

Fantasy Impact: Adell has had a disappointing start to the 2022 season, both in the majors and at Triple-A. Angels manager Joe Maddon stated that Adell also would not be with the Angels if Ward was not on the IL. It sounds like he is just a depth piece until Ward returns.

Here we go again. Jo Adell is back with the Angels, who have lost 10 games in a row.
In 19 games in Triple-A this season, he’s batting just .222 but does have a .938 OPS and a 14.8% walk rate.
With Taylor Ward hitting the IL and the Angels desperate for a spark, sure, why not

Taylor Ward placed on the 10-day IL Sunday
Taylor Ward was placed on the 10-day IL Sunday after suffering hamstring tightness during Friday’s game. Angels manager Joe Maddon stated they are hoping that Ward will only miss the minimum 10 days. (Source: Jeff Fletcher on Twitter )
Fantasy Impact: Ward has had an excellent 2022 season so far. He is slashing .333 / .443 / .644, with 10 home runs, 26 RBIs, and one steal. While his season has been a welcome surprise to fantasy managers, he definitely leaves a hole on any roster when he is out of the lineup.
