2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Walker continues to display outstanding power as he led the minor leagues in home runs with 31. However, he continues to whiff too often as he struck out in 34.8 percent of his plate appearances His walk rate wasn't terrible at 9.1 percent, but he's likely going to need better plate discipline to thrive at higher levels. However, we could have made the same argument before he moved to Double-A. If he can continue to show power at Triple-A, he could get a look in the majors late next season

2014

Walker had a breakout season at Low-A Cedar Rapids by hitting .278 with 27 home runs with a .845 OPS. Many scouts said the third-round pick had the most raw power in the 2012 draft in part due to his size (6-foot-4 and 225 pounds). However, he struggled with patience at the plate by fanning 115 times, while drawing just 31 walks. He'll need to make more contact to succeed at higher levels and may need to move to first base due to his defense, but he has tremendous upside due to his power.
