27-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Los Angeles Angels
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Shohei Ohtani is not the only slugger in the Angels organization to double as a pitcher. Walsh has shown legitimate potential as a lefty reliever over the past two seasons, compiling a 3.38 ERA and 7.7 K/9 in 18.2 innings at three minor-league levels and holding his own in five major-league innings in 2019. Walsh's ability to pitch is a unique twist to his status as a power-hitting first-base prospect. Since 2018, he has racked up 65 home runs and 185 RBI while batting .298 in the minors. Though he struggled to make contact (40.2 K%, 68.8 Contact%) during his first taste of the big leagues last season, Walsh did flash power with a 54.5% hard-hit rate and 91.3 mph average exit velocity. Walsh is likely to be a platoon player in 2020 with Albert Pujols still in the picture, but if he is able to reduce his strikeout rate and utilize his raw power, he could force his way into more playing time.
