Ben Joyce Promoted To The Major Leagues

Los Angeles Angels right-handed pitching prospect Ben Joyce was promoted to the major leagues in a corresponding move that sent left-hander Reid Detmers to Triple-A Salt Lake. Joyce held a 4.26 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across 19 innings at Double-A earlier this season. Joyce made his major-league debut last season and logged just 10 innings to the tune of a 5.40 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, and a 9:10 BB:K. However, the 23-year-old operated exclusively out of the bullpen last season. Joyce, the team's No. 4 prospect per MLB Pipeline, owns an explosive triple-digit fastball, but he's had trouble locating it so far in his professional career. He has the makings of a future closer if he can show better command.

Ben Joyce Progressing

Los Angeles Angels manager Phil Nevin said that rookie relief pitcher Ben Joyce (elbow) threw an inning of relief at the team's spring training facilities in Arizona on Aug. 31 and came out of it without any setbacks. "We'll take it slow with him," Nevin said. "He feels great. We'll see how he progresses in the next week or so; there's still games." Joyce experienced numbness and tingling in his right hand during a relief appearance against the Seattle Mariners on June 9 and was put on the 15-day injured list on June 10 and moved to the 60-day IL on July 27. The hard-throwing 22-year-old right-hander still has time to make it back with the Angels this year, but it remains to be seen if he will. In four big-league innings, the rookie allowed two earned runs while walking four and striking out five.

Ben Joyce Moved To 60-Day Injured List

The Los Angeles Angels transferred right-hander Ben Joyce (arm) to the 60-day injured list on Thursday, according to This news won't affect his recovery time, as he's already been out since June 10 with right ulnar neuritis and has yet to start a rehab assignment, but is tossing bullpens. Before his injury, Joyce only pitched four innings, giving up two runs with five strikeouts and four walks. The 22-year-old has potential as a late-inning arm, and when he's back, possibly in August, he could factor into some hold situations.

Ben Joyce Placed On 15-Day IL

Los Angeles Angels right-hander Ben Joyce (arm) landed on the 15-day injured list on Saturday. The 22-year-old was yanked from Friday's meeting with the Mariners after experiencing numbness in his hand and forearm caused by ulnar neuritis, so he'll miss at least a few weeks. Joyce has played sparingly for the big club in 2023, amassing a 1-0 record with a 4.50 ERA and five strikeouts in four innings. While he doesn't have much appeal in redraft formats, dynasty managers should keep him on the roster, especially since he has plenty of potential. In a corresponding move, the Angels selected the contract of Gerardo Reyes from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Ben Joyce Likely Going On Injured List With Hand Irritation

Los Angeles Angels right-handed pitcher Ben Joyce (hand) was pulled from Friday's game with the Seattle Mariners after eight pitches during the sixth inning. The 22-year-old revealed after the contest he was feeling numbness and tingling in his hand and forearm. Joyce will be evaluated on Saturday, but he is expected to land on the injured list, per manager Phil Nevin. The flame-throwing rookie has caught a lot eyes with his ability to consistently light up the radar gun at the major-league level. Joyce had given up two runs with five strikeouts through four innings this season. Redraft fantasy managers can probably pull the plug on him for now if they took a speculative flier, unfortunately.

Ben Joyce Promoted To Majors

Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Ben Joyce has been called up to the major league roster. The hard-throwing right-hander will take the spot of Matt Moore (oblique) on the active roster. Joyce is a third-round pick of the Angels who has been pitching in Double-A Rocket City this season. He holds a 4.60 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 24/13 K/BB ratio across 14 appearances this season. The flame-throwing right-hander has terrific stuff and could be a future closer for the organization. The expectation is that Joyce is going to start out by pitching in low-leverage spots out of the bullpen. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on him going forward.

Zach Neto, Ben Joyce Among Non-Roster Invites For Angels

Los Angeles Angels shortstop prospect Zach Neto and pitching prospect Ben Joyce are among the team's 38 non-roster invites to major-league spring training this year. Both Neto and Joyce were drafted in 2022. MLB Pipeline had Neto listed as the Angels' No. 2 prospect, while Joyce landed at No. 12. Neto made a strong professional debut at High-A Tri-City and Double-A Rocket City, slashing a combined .299/.377/.476 with five home runs, 27 RBI and five stolen bases in 37 games. The 22-year-old could be on the fast track to the big leagues in the next few years. Joyce, a third-rounder, can hit triple digits with his fastball. He had a strong 2.08 ERA with 20 strikeouts and four walks in 13 innings for Double-A Rocket City in 2022.
