Daryle Ward homered in last night's game for Triple-A Nashville.
Ward could be close to returning from his rehab assignment. He should take over at first base for the Pirates immediately. Aug. 9 - 8:20 am et


anyone think that he could smack long balls like he did before the injury?

I don't think so. He swings at anything. Those type of players often get very hot for a short period of time before the pitchers stop throwing them anything worthwhile. See: Agbayani, Benny. See: Spencer, Shane.

I doubt that he has nearly as much success after he comes back.

Dont count on Darlye Ward coming back and producing for you. I agree with AA, he is nothing more than a backup in a very deep league.

I picked him up since he qualifies at OF in my league. I had Mench who is never gonna see regular time and Gerut has been also playing part-time! At least Ward will play everyday at 1B when he returns. He plays in a good hitters park so I am taking a shot. I am also in a 14 team league so pickins' are slim.

How does he swing at everything, he has a decent .284 avg. His slg is at an amazing .556. How isn't he worth a flyer?

and like i noted in the jason bay post, he hits higher in the order between the wilson boys.

for me he will be a must start in pittsburgh and against right handers...especially with thome injured.
