2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Donnie Walton in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Singles, walks in first two starts
SSSeattle Mariners
September 13, 2019
Walton went 1-for-6 with a walk and three strikeouts over his first two major-league starts Wednesday and Thursday versus the Reds.
ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old has gotten the call at shorstop over that pair of games, although J.P. Crawford's expected return from a hamstring injury projects to displace Walton at minimum and possibly send him to the bench. The rookie is getting his first taste of big-league pitching after a stellar season at Double-A Arkansas, in which he slashed .300/.390/.427 across 558 plate appearances. Even if he does ride the pine Friday, the non-contending Mariners figure to give him opportunities for more reps against big-league arms the rest of the way.
