The catcher of the group is Taylor Ward, the Angels first round pick in 2015. The number three prospect for the Halos, Ward was drafted as a defensive-minded catcher. Ward proved to be much more in his first full season as a pro. He hit .249 with 64 runs and 56 RBI’s. He also walked 48 times to 81 strikeouts. Ward has shown he has a powerful swing, with legit line-drive power. Ward is the prospect to watch for the Angels this season.
