Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 45 | Slider: 50 | Control: 55 | Overall: 40

Walker wasn't much of a prospect coming out of high school, landing at Gardner-Webb in the Big South Conference. He came into his own during his junior year in the Runnin' Bulldogs rotation, which vaulted him into the fifth round of the 2016 Draft. After two seasons as a starter in the Braves system, he's moved full-time in the bullpen in 2019 with very solid results in Double-A.

At 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, Walker has long had a big league body and is now starting to match it with production on the mound thanks to three solid offerings. Now pitching in shorter stints, the right-hander is running his fastball up to 95-96 mph, throwing it with good sink that continues to get ground-ball outs. He's also missing bats more consistently, mixing in a pair of breaking balls effectively, with his slider having taken a step forward towards being a truer out pitch. Walker has always been a solid strike-thrower, but his control and command have taken a huge step forward in his new role.

While Walker has been called on to save some games in 2019, he likely doesn't have the stuff to close at the highest level. But he is looking more and more like a future big league bullpen piece, one who has the ability to pitch multiple innings in an outing.
