What is there not to like about Jordan Walker? The Georgia native was drafted out of high school by the St. Louis Cardinals during the 2020 MLB Amateur Draft. Walker was selected 21st overall, and from Decatur High School.   Walker primarily plays third base, although he has transitioned a bit in the minor leagues to playing in the outfield also. Walker is described as a powerful hitter. He has phenomenal size, standing at 6-foot-5-inches and weighing 220 pounds.   Walker launches balls at an insane bat-speed and is described as a player that hits for power.

Right now, he's batting .309 with 18 home runs and 60 R
