I can't say I'm impressed with the Christian Walker acquisition. He's strictly a 4A type. Living in MD most of my life, I grew up a Braves and O's fan - so I've followed Walker. He's about to turn 26, so he's at the expiration point as a prospect. He lost out as far as 1Bman prospects battle to Mancini in the O's system. He played some LF last year to differentiate himself, but he's a 1Bman. He did well in AA and has some power, but he struck out too much and was so-so in AAA. He's not even a pinch hitting prospect, imo. Organizational depth.
