There are signs that the major leagues will be excited by the performance of Jordan Walker (21, St. Louis), a great prospect.
MLB.com, the official MLB website, said on the 5th (Korean time), “Looking at the 6-foot-5 inch (approximately 196 cm) walker, Pujols seems to have been revived 20 years ago. Walker, who is still 20 years old, stood out with two homers, infield hits, three RBIs and three runs in a game against the Washington Nationals on the 5th. He has a batting average of 0.500 and a slugging percentage of 1.167 with 3 home runs, 2 doubles, 2 infield hits and 6 RBIs in 6 exhibition games until the 5th. He has a 1.667 OPS, though he has to factor in his low number of plate appearances.” 저금통 토토
Walker, like St. Louis legend Pujols, is aiming for his major league debut at 21. Pujols was selected as an All-Star as Rookie of the Year in his first season in the big leagues and won the Silver Slugger.
It remains to be seen whether Walker, who is recording a batting average of 0.429, 3 homers, 6 RBIs, 6 runs, 9 hits, and an OPS of 1.429 in 7 demonstration games until the 6th, will be able to debut in the big leagues this season. St. Louis has an outfield composed of Tyler O’Neill, Lars Nutba and Dylan Carlson. Walker stands at the center of the issue, but is still fighting for survival. “Walker continues to show his ability,” St. Louis manager Oliver Mamol said. He’s ready to compete, and I’m enjoying watching that.”
