Walsh had an up-and-down career as a two-way player at Georgia, serving at times as a lefty swingman and showing glimpses of offensive ability as a hitter. Taken with no expectations as a 39th-round senior sign, Walsh focused on his bat for much of his pro career. Playing mostly first base and a little outfield, he'd always hit well, then broke out across three levels and led the organization in RBIs and finished tied for the lead in home runs. At the same time, he started re-introducing pitching to his resume, showing some aptitude as a lefty reliever and making it to the big leagues in May as a two-way player.

Walsh's raw power from the left side has always been intriguing and he started tapping into it consistently in 2018. There were plenty of strikeouts, but also a much higher walk rate, and that improved approach helped him get more pitches to drive. Defensively, he probably is a first baseman only, but it's the bat that gives him a chance to hit in the big leagues.

It's hard to evaluate what kind of pitcher Walsh is. Without any real instruction or program, he was touching 93 mph with his fastball and could spin an occasional plus breaking ball. After Walsh's offseason with a dedicated throwing program, the Angels are anxious to see if he can be a two-way player at the highest level.
