Scouting Report

12/17/20

Walker was on his way to being one of the top arms in the class before having Tommy John surgery, but is now fully healthy and already running his fastball back up to 92 mph. He pounds the zone with a full arsenal of pitches including one of the better changeups in the class.

3/30/19

Strong 6-foot, 180-pound frame, athletic, durable build. The top arm in Louisiana’s 2021 class, was dominant during the 2019 spring season. Strike thrower with quality stuff, advanced feel to pitch. Long, clean arm action into high-3/4 release with quick arm speed, and easy effort. Athletic delivery with fluid rhythm, level shoulders, in-line direction, lands square and finishes athletically. Pitches 88-92 mph with his fastball, premium command to both sides of plate, flashes heavy sinker at times. Two different breaking balls. Slider has flashed premium out-pitch potential with explosive late, sharp break at 83-86 mph, swing-and-miss pitch. Curveball shows 11/5-shape with tight spin, quality depth, deception and fastball arm speed at 76-79 mph, manipulates it well, throws for strikes, creates soft contact. Also flashes quality feel for changeup with fastball arm speed, deception, and fade action at 80-81 mph.
