  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: On bench Sunday

    Walsh is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Houston. Walsh is 2-for-18 with four walks, four RBI and eight strikeouts over his past seven games, and he'll take a seat against Astros righty Cristian Javier. Ezequiel Duran will start at first base and bat eighth Sunday.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Retreats to bench versus lefty

    Walsh is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Athletics. With Oakland bringing a lefty (JP Sears) to the hill Thursday, the lefty-hitting Walsh will take a seat for the second time in the series. Ezequiel Duran will step in for Walsh at first base and will bat sixth.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Steps out of lineup

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Logs two hits in loss

    Walsh went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Rays. The lefty-batting Walsh made a fourth consecutive start at first base, including one against a lefty, and has hit safely in all four, going 7-for-18 with two extra-base hits, three RBI and five runs. The season started as a likely platoon of Walsh (against righties) and Ezequiel Duran (lefties) while primary first baseman Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) recovers. However, third baseman Josh Jung's wrist injury, which is expected to keep him sidelined for at least six weeks, may require Duran to help fill that void.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Homer, three hits in win

    Walsh started at first base and went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two additional runs scored in Saturday's 11-2 win over the Cubs. Walsh's two-run blast in the second inning wiped out Chicago's 2-0 lead, as the Rangers thumped their way to an easy win. The left-handed hitting Walsh got the start against a right-hander after Ezequiel Duran played first base in Thursday's opener against a lefty. Those two are handling the position until Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) is ready to play.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Sitting versus lefty

    Walsh is out of the lineup Thursday against the Cubs. The Cubs will send southpaw Justin Steele to the mound to start their season, so the lefty-hitting Walsh will begin Opening Day in the dugout. Ezequiel Duran will instead start at first base and bat seventh.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Added to big-league roster

    The Rangers selected Walsh's contract from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday. Walsh was able to win a spot on Texas' Opening Day roster after putting up an .827 OPS with three home runs this spring. He's likely in line to see most of the at-bats at first base against right-handed pitching while Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) is on the shelf.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Favored for Opening Day roster

    Walsh is expected to be named to the 26-man roster Tuesday, Dave Sessions of MLB.com reports. Walsh and Justin Foscue battled it out during spring training -- each recorded more than 50 plate appearances during Cactus League games -- but the Rangers are apparently leaning toward Walsh, a non-roster invitee that needs to be added to the 40-man roster. That much was confirmed Monday, when the transactions page of MiLB.com posted the Rangers had optioned Foscue to Triple-A Round Rock. Ultimately, it was Walsh's wealth of experience at first base that was the deciding factor. With Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) set to open the season on the injured list, the Rangers wanted a more experienced first baseman, and Foscue only started playing there this spring. The right-handed hitting Ezequiel Duran will serve as the backup and possible platoon mate for the lefty-swinging Walsh. Texas faces left-hander Justin Steele on Opening Day, which may dictate that Duran draws the start in that matchup.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Set up for strong-side platoon role

    The Rangers prefer to use a platoon of Walsh and Ezequiel Duran at first base while Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) is sidelined, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports. The Duran part of the platoon will be in effect only if he's not needed to fill in at shortstop for Corey Seager (groin), but for now there's optimism Seager will be ready. Walsh appears set to start at first base versus righties initially either way, as he's had an impressive camp as a non-roster invitee in slashing .286/.419/.571 with three home runs. It could just be a short-term gig for Walsh, although if he gets off to a nice start he might be an option at designated hitter after Lowe returns.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Frontrunner to fill in for Lowe

    Walsh could be the leading candidate to fill in for the injured Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) at first base for the Rangers, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports. In camp as a non-roster invitee, Walsh is sporting a 1.147 OPS with one home run and a 4:3 K:BB over his first seven Cactus League games, thrusting himself into the conversation to replace Lowe. Justin Foscue looks like the other likely replacement, although he's also in the mix at designated hitter. Manager Bruce Bochy listed Blaine Crim, Ezequiel Duran, Josh Smith and Davis Wendzel as possibilities at first base as well. Walsh had a breakout 2021 season with the Angels but has flopped since then due to injuries and other health issues, posting a .613 OPS and 32.1 percent strikeout rate across 572 plate appearances at the major-league level. The 30-year-old is starting at first base and batting third for Texas in Friday's Cactus League game versus the Royals.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Gets NRI from Rangers

    Walsh signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training. Walsh had a breakout 2021 campaign when he slugged 29 home runs and made the All-Star team. Since then, though, he's managed a lowly .613 OPS and 32.1 percent strikeout rate across 572 plate appearances at the major-league level. The 30-year-old will compete for a reserve role with the Rangers but almost surely will report to Triple-A Round Rock to start 2024 as he looks to get his career back on track.

  • Jared Walsh: Hits free agency

    Walsh elected free agency Monday. It's the second time since early August that Walsh has been outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster. The 30-year-old posted a lowly .494 OPS over 39 games in 2023 and simply hasn't been the same player since his breakout 2021 season.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Optioned to Salt Lake

    The Angels optioned Walsh to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. Mickey Moniak's (back) return from the 10-day IL will force Walsh back to the minors after he was selected from Triple-A on Sept. 14. Walsh has slashed just .135/.158/.378 through 38 plate appearances across 11 games in that span, and he will likely need to bounce back in a big way next spring in order to carve out a role for himself in the majors.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Walsh is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against Twins, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Walsh started the Angels' previous seven games but will head to the bench Sunday after he posted a .549 OPS during that stretch. Jo Adell will take over in right field Sunday, batting sixth.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Goes yard again Saturday

    Walsh went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Tigers. Walsh hit a homer as a pinch hitter Friday and went yard again Saturday in his first two games back since he was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake. He got the start in right field and played there for the full game Saturday. The 30-year-old is slashing a meager .139/.253/.319 with three homers, eight RBI and seven runs scored over 83 major-league plate appearances, so it's unlikely he gets a full-time role over the last two weeks of the season.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Returns to majors with long ball

    Walsh hit a solo home run in his only at-bat during a loss to the Tigers on Friday. Walsh was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday and began Friday's contest on the bench. He was called on to pinch hit in the ninth inning and smoked a 435-foot solo homer to right-center field. The long ball was just the second in the majors this season for Walsh, who battled insomnia and migraines early in the campaign and has slashed .132/.253/.279 over 79 plate appearances.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Selected from Salt Lake

    The Angels selected Walsh's contract from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. Walsh was sent outright to Triple-A at the beginning of August after slashing just .119/.244/.224 through 78 plate appearances in the majors. Walsh hasn't been spectacular in the minors either, but he'll return to give the Angels depth at first base and maybe in the corner outfield to close the season.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Dropped from 40-man roster

    Walsh was designated for assignment by the Angels on Thursday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Walsh is gone from the 40-man roster in a string of moves following Wednesday night's trade for Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez. The 29-year-old first baseman was an All-Star in 2021 and posted an overall .850 OPS with 29 homers and 98 RBI across 118 games that season, but he drastically regressed in 2022 and had slashed just .119/.244/.224 through 28 major-league games this year while battling migraine headaches. He was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake in late June and was batting .132 with a .624 OPS in 66 plate appearances there since the demotion.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Optioned to minors

    Walsh was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Walsh has struggled mightily across 78 plate appearances this season, hitting just .119/.244/.224. As a result, he had lost a regular role against right-handed pitching and had started only two of the Angels' last nine games. He missed a significant part of the campaign with insomnia and migraines, but he'll look to regain his rhythm at the plate with Salt Lake.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Heads to bench against southpaw

    Walsh will sit Tuesday versus the Dodgers. Walsh will take a seat against left-hander Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. Righty bat Kevin Padlo will take over at first base and bat sixth Tuesday.
