    Walker is no stranger to the big stage. He quietly won the home run derby that started the firestorm of Bryce Harper coverage and he went on to be a key offensive piece in South Carolina's back-to-back national championships. He gutted out a broken hamate bone in Omaha in 2011 and the injury hasn't affected his offense. He was hitting .335/.462/.559 with 10 home runs in 2012 and had more walks (38) than strikeouts (19). He doesn't have a great frame at 6-feet, 220 pounds and is limited to first base defensively. But he has a good feel for hitting and his power is average to a tick above.
