Scouting Report From MLB.com Top 100 Draft Prospects:
"The son of a former NFL running back, Walker looks the part of a future slugger. The question is if he has the baseball skills to get there.

There’s no question about his pop at the plate. He might have as much raw power as anyone in the Draft class, with some scouts giving him an 80 on the 20-80 scouting scale. He also has a very good approach to hitting, though his hitting instincts lag behind. That leaves some wondering if he’ll learn to tap into that power consistently enough against advanced pitching.

A big, physical specimen, Walker has played both first base and the outfield. His arm is well below average, and while some think he could handle playing left field, his defensive home is up in the air. He draws comparisons to Giancarlo Stanton, both in body type and power potential, but there is some concern that he’s a Ferrari with a VW engine."

  1. Love the kids power and approach to the game. He has deceptive speed for a big man and a better arm than advertised. Great Q & A in Twins Daily:

  2. He is my big sleeper in the Twins system. He has star potential. Potential is just that though until fulfilled.
