01/17/2020 - Baseball Factory's Spring Training at Pirate City (Ages 12-14)
Walker is a coachable C/3B prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Spring Training at Pirate City. Behind the plate, Walker presents a good target to the pitcher and tracks the ball into his glove. Sitting in a more athletic stance can help Walker improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a square stride. He is controlled getting his hands activated in his load and drives through well with his lower half. He generates fast bat speed through the zone, leading to solid line drives. Walker can improve as a hitter by getting more extension through the ball. Overall, Walker is a solid prospect who has the potential to further develop his skills on the field.
