Dennis Walker is a 2007 OF/1B/P with a 6'3'', 180 lb. frame from Chula Vista CA, who attends Eastlake HS. Selected as a Top 10 Prospect at this event. Walker has a plus body that is long, strong, and lean. He is a talented player and has been better each time we have seen him over the last two years. The bat is his number one tool. Walker is a young power hitting prospect. Right now he has line drive power that comes from an easy, flat swing. He is the kind of hitter whose mistakes leave the yard, with carry. His hands work really well. In time he is likely to learn to lift the ball more and start leaving the yard on a regular basis, without sacrificing much average. There are times that he looks like a pretty high draft prospect with the bat. Walker is relaxed at the plate and is very confident in what he can do. He just has the look of a player that expects to hit and hit well. Defensively he has a strong, accurate arm that is well-suited for right field, though his range will play better in left. However, his instincts as a ballplayer will also come into play and he has good instincts. Walker even competed on the mound and showed well. He has a clean arm stroke and has very good feel of the baseball and for pitching. His fastball topped at 83 but it was his curveball that was most impressive. He throws it 72 mph and it has very tight spin and good depth, making it an quality out-type pitch. However, it is the bat that will get Walker his future opportunities, at the college level and beyond. He is a good student and possesses a lot of upside as a player.
