RHP Matt Walker: This young right hander from Louisiana put on an impressive performance at the Showcase. We’ve heard scouts talk about him as a potential top 3 round draft pick and the talent he showed us fits well with that evaluation. Walker has a great pitcher’s body at 6-3, 190 lbs, with long angular features that can add strength in the future. He has a nice balanced delivery and a high ¾’s to overhand release point. If anything, Walker’s release point on his curveball is a bit lower. This young man can really accelerate his arm once he gets his body moving towards the plate. Walker’s fastball topped out at 92 mph and didn’t loose anything from the stretch. His curveball is a hammer at 76-78 mph, with a sharp, deep break to it. Walker even flashed a change up with nice tailing action. He’s signed with Southeastern Louisiana but developments on June 7 could definitely change that.
