Scouting Report

2/6/22
Walsh works freely and easily down the slope with good momentum. He gets out to full stride length with ease and from there is applied late acceleration en route to a 86 MPH heater with a downhill angle due to the over the top release point. Walsh tunnels his CH and CB nicely off his FB and they should play well off each other to opposing hitters. Walsh displays a very mature approach on the mound as he floats near maximal effort without out throwing his frame. 

Defensively, Walsh was also the big winner on the day as he posted an 86 MPH outfield velo. He did work out in the OF prior to throwing off of the mound, so keep that in mind when looking at his peak FB velo. There is a lot of room to grow for Walsh, but in the mean time, he surely gets the job done throwing upper 80's numbers all day long. Not to go unnoticed, Walsh had an exceptional round of BP as well as he checked in with an 88 MPH peak exit velo. All in all, Walsh will be one to keep an eye on in his freshman campaign at Bethel Park.
