2022 Player Outlook
Walsh displayed impressive pop last season, especially to his pull side. If you look at his spray chart, it was a party out in right field. He hit .277 last season with an .849 OPS, 29 home runs, 98 RBI and 70 runs scored. He struggled mightily against southpaws, hitting just .170 with a .565 OPS, but a .333 batting average and .994 OPS are excellent. Despite his massive splits from last season, the Angels won't put him in a platoon role at first base. Sure, he might get pinch-hit for later in the game, but hey, if he went 2-for-2 with a home run and double prior to being pulled, is that bad? Ideally, Walsh will cut down on his strikeouts, but even if he doesn't, he should post his first 30 homer season with a chance for 100+ RBI in 2022.
