Welker led Douglas High capture its first state championship in program history this spring, even after losing ace Jesus Luzardo to Tommy John surgery. Welker hit .500 this spring, and sent the Eagles to the state final four with a game-winning home run. A righthanded hitter, Welker has an easy swing that mostly produces line drives now, but should enable him to hit for average power as he physically matures. Listed at 6-foot-1, 209 pounds, Welker is a physical infielder. He will likely move off shortstop as a professional, as he is a below-average runner and already big for the position. He has the hands, athleticism and strong arm to profile well at third base, however. Like Luzardo, Welker is committed to Miami.
