2017

Welker is the type of bat-first prep prospect who can be snatched up for a great value in dynasty league drafts this spring, fitting a similar mold as Bobby Bradley and Austin Riley in recent years. He did not come off the board until pick 110, but it was an over-slot deal, and if there was a consensus that he would bring value with his glove, he would have gone much higher. A corner infielder who will hope to be average at third and could end up moving to first, Welker is unlikely to appear on real-life prospect lists anytime soon, but he has the makings of a middle-of-the-order hitter with a plus hit tool and plus power. His hit tool probably needs to get to at least above average to carry the rest of his profile to an everyday role, given the defensive limitations. Every hitter who has not yet played in a full-season league carries a lot of risk, but Welker makes for a worthwhile gamble given his future home ballpark, contact skills and prodigious power.
