Angels' Mike Ford: Outrighted to minors
The Angels outrighted Ford to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.
Ford was one of three Angels recently designated for assignment to clear waivers, with pitcher Mike Mayers and outfielder Magneuris Sierra also getting outrighted to Triple-A on Sunday. The 30-year-old Ford is eligible to become a free agent this offseason and may have to settle for a minor-league deal after slashing .206/.302/.313 over 149 plate appearances in the majors this season between stops with the Angels, Mariners, Giants and Atlanta....

Angels' Mike Ford: DFA'd by Halos
Ford was designated for assignment by the Angels on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Ford has been a lineup regular at first base for the past month, but he's been removed from the 40-man roster after he posted a .231/.293/.374 slash line with three home runs and five RBI in 28 games for the Angels. Anthony Rendon (wrist) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move, though the Halos will be down one player for the next five games while Rendon serves a suspension....

Angels' Mike Ford: Racks up three hits
Ford went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.
Ford has endured a difficult September, hitting just .208 (40-for-48) even after Tuesday's three-hit game. This was his third multi-hit effort of the month. The 30-year-old first baseman is up to a .214/.318/.321 slash line with three home runs, 10 RBI, eight runs scored and three doubles through 45 contests, 23 of which have come with the Angels. Despite the poor hitting of late, he's still receiving more playing time than Matt Thaiss at first base.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Mike Ford: Goes yard Tuesday
Ford went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Tigers.
Ford slugged one of the Angels' three long balls on the night off Tigers starter Eduardo Rodriguez. Since getting a call-up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Aug. 25, Ford is getting on base at a .357 clip while leaving the yard three times. He'll start at first base and will bat sixth in Wednesday's series finale and looks to have a hold on an everyday role for the time being.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Mike Ford: Goes yard again Tuesday
Ford went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Yankees.
For the second time in as many games, Ford hit a homer against his former team. The first baseman also has four multi-hit efforts in his last six games, with two homers in that span. For the season, he's slashed .226/.351/.339 with two long balls, seven RBI, four runs scored and a double through 72 plate appearances across stints with four different teams. He's settled in as the Angels' primary first baseman, a role he could hold for the remainder of the 2022 season.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Ford: Hammers homer against former team
Ford went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Monday's 4-3 win over the Yankees.
Ford's solo shot to right field in the fourth inning tied the score and served as a bit of revenge against the club that DFA'd him last June. He bounced around to five different organizations -- including serving two different stints with Seattle -- before finding work with the Angels last week, and he's settled in as the team's primary first baseman. Ford's homer Monday was his first in 27 games this season, and he's gone 6-for-19 through five contests with Los Angeles.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Ford: Settles in as primary first baseman
Ford will start at first base and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports.
Ford will pick up his fourth consecutive start after going 2-for-11 with two walks in his first three games with the Angels following his call-up Thursday from Triple-A Salt Lake. With Jared Walsh (thoracic outlet syndrome) done for the season, Ford should serve as the Angels' primary first baseman the rest of the way.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Ford: Notches two hits in Angels debut
Ford went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Rays on Thursday.
Ford signed with the Angels on Wednesday and was brought up to the big club the following day. He struck out in his first at-bat but followed with consecutive singles before fanning again in his final plate appearance. Ford should see plenty of playing time with Jared Walsh out for the season after being diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Ford: Finds work with Halos
Ford signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Aug. 16 and has gone 5-for-23 over his first six games at Triple-A Salt Lake.
The Angels are Ford's fourth organization of the season, after he began the year with the Mariners before being moved to San Francisco, back to Seattle and then to Atlanta. He cleared waivers when Atlanta designated him for assignment earlier this month, and he was later granted his release to pursue work elsewhere. Ford quickly found a home with the Angels, who will likely be able to present him with a clearer path to playing time if he were to reach the big leagues later this season. Shohei Ohtani is entrenched as the Angels' designated hitter, but Ford could be an option at first base if the team elects to demote or bench Jared Walsh, who is slashing .157/.235/.269 since the All-Star break....

Angels' Mike Ford: Called up, starting Thursday
The Angels selected Ford's contract from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday, and he'll start at first base and bat cleanup in the Los Angeles' series finale with the Rays, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Infielder Phil Gosselin was designated for assignment to clear room on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster for Ford, who joined the Angels on a minor-league deal last week following his release from Atlanta. Over 369 career plate appearances in the majors, Ford owns a .192/.304/.391 slash line with 17 home runs. He'll step into the lineup for Jared Walsh, who is on the bench Thursday and could be in danger of losing playing time to Ford in light of prolonged slide at the plate.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Mike Ford: Activated and DFA'd
Atlanta reinstated Ford (neck) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday and designated him for assignment.
With Ford coming off the 40-man roster and Adam Duvall (wrist) shifting to the 60-day injured list, Atlanta was able to open up spots for infielder Vaughn Grissom and reliever Kirby Yates (elbow), who were both activated in advance of Wednesday's series finale in Boston. It's the fourth occasion in which Ford has been designated for assignment this season, with the Mariners booting him off their 40-man roster twice and the Giants doing so once. The power-hitting first baseman/designated hitter will likely report to Triple-A Gwinnett if he isn't claimed off waivers.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Mike Ford: Reverts to IL
Atlanta reversed Ford's option to Triple-A Gwinnett and placed him on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a strained neck.
Since Ford was already moved off the 26-man active roster in the wake of Atlanta acquiring Robbie Grossman from the Tigers on Monday, the change in the transaction type won't dramatically change Ford's timeline for rejoining the big club, provided his strained neck isn't anything more than a short-term concern. Even before the injury surfaced, Ford was having a tough time finding at-bats off the Atlanta bench, as he appeared in just one game during his week-long stay on the active roster.... See More ...

Braves' Mike Ford: Sent to Triple-A
Ford was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Ford appeared in only game after being recalled from Gwinnett on July 24, and he was sent back there to open up a roster spot for trade acquisition Robbie Grossman. Atlanta will be left with only one true first baseman at the big-league level, so Ford could be summoned again if the team decides it needs another player at that position.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Mike Ford: Called up Sunday
Ford was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Ford will return to the big leagues Sunday, replacing Adam Duvall (wrist) on the active roster after he was placed on the 10-day injured list. Ford has produced a .162 average with a double, five RBI and a run scored over 37 at-bats with the Giants, Mariners and Atlanta this season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Mike Ford: Back to Triple-A
Ford was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.
Ford failed to get an at-bat while in the big leagues after being called up Friday and he will now return to Triple-A on Monday. The first baseman will remain a top candidate for a potential call up moving forward.... See More ... See Less
