2023 Player Outlook
Walker is flying through the minor league ranks, and in his first taste of Double-A action in 2022, he slashed .306/.388/.510 with 19 home runs, 100 runs scored 68 RBI, and 22 stolen bases. His raw power jumps off the page, and he’s got enough speed to provide fantasy managers with an above-average stolen base total. Walker seems to be the type of prospect that you build in a lab because he has great size, and can play third base or right field, and the Cardinals’ brass absolutely raves about him. Walker has been exceptional this spring, likely securing a spot on the big league roster to begin the season. He'll need to keep the strikeouts in check, but he could be the next young guy that enters fantasy stardom.
