Connor Walsh
Name: Connor Griscom Walsh
Born: Oct 18, 1992 in Berwyn, Pa. USA
College: Cincinnati
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 190 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 12th round (348th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2014
Walsh is a redshirt junior who missed his freshman campaign after Tommy John surgery. His performance in the rotation has been lackluster, and his two-pitch mix likely fits better out of the bullpen. At his best, Walsh sits in the low 90s, touching 94-95 mph. But his fastball can dip into the high 80s at times. He has a compact arm action and gets downhill plane from a high three-quarters arm slot. His curveball flashes above-average but he struggles to throw it for strikes. He infrequently mixes in a serviceable changeup. His control numbers have been below-average in his career, and he has effort in his delivery. He hasn't shown the ability to miss bats, with a 6.9 per nine strikeout rate in his career. The 6-foot-2, 176-pounder has an athletic build.
