On Saturday, the 20-year-old hit a long home run, continuing to show off his unique abilities and prove why he may not have much left to prove in the minor leagues.
The Twitter account for the Arizona Fall League posted a video of Walker’s big home run, showing just how hard he hit the ball as he watched it fly out of the ballpark for his fourth of the AFL season.
Walker is also hitting .276 and has driven in 13 in 16 games.
Now this, is a work of art 🎨

Walker Continues To Mash
If all goes according to plan, the Cards’ top prospect may soon force his way onto the big-league roster.
With the Cardinals in need of an extra bat this offseason, the fix could come internally.
There’s little more Walker can do in the minor leagues or in the AFL.
Walker is just one of several promising prospects in the Cardinals minor league system.
Much of the credit goes to scouting director Randy Flores, a former pitcher with the team.
Walker is one of many promising young stars that Flores has found and helped bring into the organization.
Walker’s natural position is third base, but with Nolan Arenado locked in at that position, Walker will likely have to find a way onto the big-league roster as an outfielder.
