COACHES COMMENTS:

Walker is an extremely driven catcher and IF who handles the bat with a lot of confidence. Behind the dish, Walker controls his pitching staff and is a natural born leader when he gears up. He is a smooth receiver with a great catch-and-rid-of on his throw downs. Because of his athleticism, there aren’t many baseballs that get by him as he does a great job of handling pitches in the dirt. In the IF, Walker gives you options at all four spots because of his ability to move side-to-side and his soft hands. He always wants the baseball and is quick from his catch to his release. Offensively, Walker owns the batter’s box and very rarely finds himself overmatched. He has a smooth stroke and does a nice job of getting extended past contact, hitting for average while also containing the ability to split gaps. Walker brings energy to the offense, as he seems to always be on base whether that be from base knocks, hit-by-pitches, walks, etc. Because of his versatility on defense, his constant quality at-bats, and his teammate grade - Walker will be a great fit for plenty of programs at the next level.
