2014

Walters finally unlocked his power potential in 2013, swatting 29 home runs at Triple-A, but his complete lack of plate discipline probably dooms him to a major league bench role down the road. Still, players who can hit home runs and play an adequate middle infield tend to get more chances than players who can only manage one or the other, so he could surprise.
