John Walker is a 6'3", 160 lb. shortstop/pitcher from Alexandria, Virginia. In the field he threw 81mph across the infield with good carry on his throws and showed very good hands and quickness on double plays. John is a switch hitter who showed better bat speed and contact ability from the right side. He has a pronounced hand hitch from the right side, but generates some good bat speed and shows hand strength. From the left side, John has more of a rotational swing that utilizes less of his hands. John also pitched some and showed promise on the mound. His delivery mechanics are raw and complicated, but he showed good arm looseness and a fastball that reached 82 mph, along with a 68 mph curveball that had fair spin, and a 74 mph change up. John is an excellent student.

John Walker is a 2005 SS/P from Alexandria, VA. Walker is a tall and slender at 6'3" with a very projectable body that’s not as strong as it will be, especially in his upper half. Depending on how he develops physically, Walker could evolve into either a stronger player or pitcher, as he’s pretty even right now. Walker has graceful athletic actions and looks like he’s moving quicker than he actually is. He’s a switch hitter who is more polished and fundamentally sound left handed. Walker’s arm strength plays best at shortstop or possibly at third base in the future. His throws from short are strong and accurate with good on-line carry. We thought we’d see a bit more velocity from Walker on the mound after watching him in the infield but he was 79-81 mph. He doesn’t get much lower half involvement to his delivery or generate much power from his hips. Walker’s curveball was a pretty good pitch at 69-70. John is a very good student.
