A big, 6-foot-7, 260-pound righthander with big stuff to match, scouts were excited to see Walter this spring after he flashed two plus offerings. He has thrown a fastball in the 93-95 mph range and touched 96, while also showing a slider that has plus potential as well. Walter pitched in the Cape Cod League last summer and struck out 13 batters in 10 innings of relief work, but also walked nine. Walter’s performance throughout his college career has never quite lived up to his pure stuff. He has a career 5.34 ERA and 5.3 per nine walk rate over 195.1 innings—mostly in a starting role—and was off to a poor start in 2020 with 21 walks in just 16.2 innings. A redshirt junior who will turn 22 shortly after the draft, Walter is also old for the class, but could be an interesting relief project thanks to his size and stuff.
