12/27/2015 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic
Walsh is a 2019 OF that showed some promise at the Recruiting Classic. In the OF, Chris showed some carry to throws that were on-line and did show aggressive routes to come in on the baseball when appropriate. Developing more efficient, smooth footwork will lead to increased body control and shorten the transition from catch to throw. Walsh's best attributes came out at the plate. Chris showed a loose, direct bat path with extension through contact with present bat speed coming from coordination of the hips and hands. Quieting down the actions will lead to less jumpiness, which will lead to more consistent results and carry-over from BP to game situations. With years ahead to improve, Walsh's stock should continue to rise as a ball player.
