2024 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Adam Brett Walker in 2024. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.

Walker signed with the Kansas City T-Bones of the independent American Association on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of The Athletic Minnesota reports.
A third-round pick in the 2012 draft, Walker topped out at the Triple-A level in affiliated baseball but didn't have much success there, hitting .216/.276/.422 in 185 games over the last two seasons. The 26-year-old could improve his stock in independent ball before making another run at the major leagues, but nothing in his track record suggests he'll be much of an asset if that ends up happening.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Walker packs tremendous raw power as evidenced by his 124 home runs in 584 career games in the minors. However, he sells out for that power -- he's struck out nearly 400 times over the past two seasons (202 times in 2016). The Brewers claimed Walker off waivers after new Twins management was concerned by his lack of contact, and he was scooped up by the Orioles after Milwaukee exposed him to waivers soon thereafter. If he can learn to put the ball in play more often, he could get a trial in the majors and offer upside for home runs. Walker may be forced to return to Triple-A to begin his age-25 campaign after he spent the entire 2016 season at that level. If he can work his way to the 25-man roster, there is a very good chance he will begin on the small side of a platoon after hitting southpaws at a .264/.333/.552 clip during his time at Rochester.
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
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.
