The younger brother of former Angels infielder Paxton Wallace and the son of a college quarterback, Cayden Wallace has one of the best infield arms in college baseball. He doesn’t need to set his feet to get something on his throws, which makes him a wiz at charging into bare-hand bunts. When he does set his feet, his throws seem rocket powered. He is comfortable leaving his feet, knowing he has the arm to pop up and make the play. In addition to having a plus-plus arm and above-average defense at third, Wallace is a heady baserunner. He has average speed, but he swiped a team-best 11 stolen bases in 12 tries. Wallace has above-average bat speed and has shown he can catch up to velocity. He has an average bat with average power. He hit .299/.394/.561. He likes to drop the bat head to pull the ball, but he also has shown he can drive the ball to right-center. He can be busted up and in on his hands. Wallace had an up-arrow as the draft neared—he hit nine of his 15 home runs in Arkansas’ last 11 games of the season and hit better during the conference schedule than he did during the non-conference slate.
