2021 Fantasy Outlook
Walsh struggled out of the gate last season, going 0-for-10 before an Aug. 3 demotion to alternate camp. Upon returning to the big club nearly four weeks later, the first baseman opened eyes around the league -- and in fantasy circles -- with a dominant finish during which he slashed .326/.357/.719 with nine home runs in 98 PA. Walsh's much-hyped power was on full display as he led all big-league hitters who logged at least 100 PA with an overall .354 ISO and ranked second with a .646 SLG. What's more, he was rarely fooled at the plate, posting a superb 13.9 K%. A glance at Walsh's minor-league stats suggests that the contact numbers are likely to regress, but the power is legitimate. He'll have to cede the occasional start to Albert Pujols for one more season, but Walsh could be a draft-day steal if he's able to carry his September magic into 2021. Read Past Outlooks

Exits Monday with side injury

July 27, 2021
Walsh exited after the seventh inning of Monday's 6-2 win over the Rockies with what manager Joe Maddon described as a side injury, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. He went 2-for-3 with an RBI before departing.
ANALYSIS
Maddon noted that Walsh's injury isn't anything serious, but he'll be reevaluated Tuesday before a decision is made on his availability for the second game of the series. Phil Gosselin came on to replace Walsh in Monday's game and would likely be the top candidate to start at first base Tuesday if Walsh can't go.

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.
