  • Nationals' Thaddeus Ward: Sent to Triple-A

    The Nationals optioned Ward to Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of reports. Ward spent all of last season on the Nationals' active roster or on the injured list after Washington selected him in the Rule 5 Draft, but his 6.37 ERA and 1.61 WHIP over 35.1 innings out of the bullpen suggested that he wasn't quite big-league ready. Now that he's eligible to be optioned to the minors, Ward could end up spending the bulk of the campaign at Rochester, where he'll be a part of the rotation after he was limited exclusively to relief work in the big leagues in 2023.

  • Nationals' Thaddeus Ward: Returns from injured list

    Ward (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day injured list Thursday, Bobby Blanco of reports. Ward had been on the shelf since July 3 with right shoulder inflammation. Though the Rule 5 selection had been working in relief for the Nationals this season, he got stretched out for starting duty during his time on the rehab assignment, covering five innings in both of his final two outings at Double-A Harrisburg. The Nationals don't appear to have an opening in their six-man rotation at the moment, so Ward will likely work in long relief for the time being. He could be a candidate to get a start or two down the stretch, however.

  • Nationals' Thaddeus Ward: Could join rotation in September

    Ward (shoulder) will make his next rehab appearance Thursday at High-A Wilmington, and the Nationals intend to stretch him out for a possible role in the rotation in September, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Taken in this year's Rule 5 draft from the Red Sox system, Ward struggled to a 7.12 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 26:24 K:BB through his first 30.1 big-league innings, all in relief, before being sidelined in early July with shoulder inflammation. The 26-year-old right-hander is seen as a possible future rotation piece however, and with the club keeping an eye on the workloads of young starters MacKenzie Gore and Jake Irvin, there could be an opening for Ward over the final weeks. He's hoping to build up to four innings in Thursday's game after tossing five total innings across two appearances for the Nats' FCL affiliate last week.

  • Nationals' Thaddeus Ward: Starts rehab assignment

    Ward (shoulder) began a rehab assignment with the Nationals' Florida Complex League team Monday. Ward yielded a pair of runs over two innings of work in his first game action since going down with a shoulder injury in early July. He figures to require a few more appearances before rejoining the Nationals' bullpen.

  • Nationals' Thad Ward: Rookie struggles continue

    Ward gave up three runs on two hits and a walk in an inning of relief in Sunday's loss to the Phillies. He struck out two. The right-hander served up a three-run homer to Kyle Schwarber in the ninth inning, but the game was already well out of reach for the Nationals. Ward has been tagged for three home runs in his last eight innings, inflating his ERA to 5.23 on the season to go along with a shaky 18.6 percent walk rate. A Rule 5 pick out of the Red Sox system, the rebuilding Nats will live with his growing pains, but Ward isn't likely to see any kind of fantasy-friendly role in 2023.

  • Red Sox's Thad Ward: Overcomes oblique strain

    Ward (oblique) is expected to make his return to action in the Arizona Fall League later this week, Chris Hatfield of reports. Ward was removed from his second AFL start on Oct. 10 due to a left oblique strain, but he looks like he'll be able to make a start or an appearance or two as a reliever for the Scottsdale club before the AFL season comes to a close. Whatever the case, the 25-year-old righty looks like he'll be back to full health well in advance of spring training.

  • Red Sox's Thad Ward: Exits AFL start

    Ward was removed from his start Monday in the Arizona Fall League due to side discomfort, Rob Bradford of reports. While the side injury might be significant enough to keep Ward out for the remainder of the AFL slate, the Red Sox are likely just relieved that the right-hander isn't dealing with any arm-related setbacks after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June 2021. Due to his prolonged recovery from the elbow procedure, Ward made just seven starts for Double-A Portland this season and was expected to pick up more innings in the AFL. The 25-year-old is expected to either return to Portland to begin the 2023 campaign or join the Triple-A Worcester rotation.

  • Red Sox's Thad Ward: Good to go for Portland

    Double-A Portland activated Ward (elbow) from its 60-day injured list in advance of his season debut for the affiliate Thursday against Erie, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. Ward made two starts for Portland in 2021 before requiring Tommy John surgery last June and missing the remainder of the season. He was out of action for the first three months of the current campaign before he began a rehab assignment July 1 in the lower rungs of the minors. Over six outings that included stops in the rookie-level Florida Complex League, Single-A Salem and High-A Greenville, Ward covered 18 innings and submitted a 2.00 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 25:5 K:BB.

  • Red Sox's Thad Ward: Rehabbing at High-A

    Ward (elbow) made his most recent rehab appearance Saturday for High-A Greenville, covering four innings and striking out three while allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and one walk. Ward has spent the entire 2022 campaign on Double-A Portland's 60-day injured list while he's been rehabbing from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last June, but the 25-year-old right-hander looks like he could soon be ready to rejoin the Red Sox's Eastern League affiliate. Saturday's outing with Greenville marked the sixth start of his rehab assignment, and his longest one to date.

  • Red Sox's Thaddeus Ward: Throws sim game

    Ward (elbow) threw a sim game recently and is hoping to begin a rehab assignment shortly, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Ward underwent Tommy John surgery in June of 2021 and is ramping up his recovery. He seemingly remains on track to get some work in late this summer after being activated from the injured list, though Boston is likely to take a cautious approach to Ward's recovery.

  • Red Sox's Thaddeus Ward: Throwing in camp

    Ward (elbow) threw Friday as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery, Ian Browne of reports. Ward underwent the procedure in early June of last year. A typical recovery timeline would give him a chance to pitch late in the upcoming season, though he's unlikely to throw a significant number of innings.

  • Red Sox's Thaddeus Ward: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Ward underwent Tommy John surgery Thursday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. Ward is one of the Red Sox's more interesting prospects, as he cruised to a 2.14 ERA and a 29.9 percent strikeout rate in 25 starts at the Low-A and High-A levels in 2019 before losing all of last season due to the canceled minor-league schedule. He made just two starts this year before being shut down with what was originally called a forearm strain. A typical recovery timeline would sideline him until late in the 2022 campaign at the earliest, and there's a chance he doesn't throw his next competitive pitch until 2023.
