Orioles signed OF Adam Brett Walker to a minor league contract.

This will be Walker's second stint with the Orioles. They initially claimed him off waivers from the Brewers at the beginning of December before designating him for assignment on January 20. The 25-year-old outfielder has shown big-time power at the lower levels -- he has hit at least 20 homers in four minor league seasons -- but has also shown a propensity to strike out, having whiffed 202 times at Triple-A Rochester in the Twins' system in 2016. Walker has yet to receive an at-bat in the majors.
May 10 - 11:19 PM

Adam Brett Walker hit a two-run home run in Wednesday's Grapefruit League loss to the Yankees.

Walker smacked his two-run home run in the eighth inning. He has displayed big-time power in the minors before, whacking 27 home runs and driving in 75 at Triple-A for the Twins last season. He also struck out 202 times. The Twins, Brewers and Orioles all placed Walker on waivers this offseason before he landed with the Braves near the end of January. The 25-year-old outfielder is still looking for his first shot at the majors.
Mar 1 - 9:35 PM

Braves sent OF Adam Brett Walker outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Yet another boot from a 40-man roster for Walker, who has been shuffled between four different organizations since the beginning of the offseason. The 25-year-old outfielder batted .243/.305/.479 with 27 home runs and 75 RBI in 132 games last summer for the Triple-A affiliate of the Twins. He has never appeared in a major league game.
Jan 31 - 5:51 PM

Braves claimed OF Adam Brett Walker off waivers from the Orioles.

The former third-round pick of the Twins was designated for assignment by Baltimore last week to clear a roster spot for Mark Trumbo. Walker, 25, batted .243/.305/.479 with 27 home runs and 75 RBI in 132 games last season at the Triple-A level. He should find a path to the majors in Atlanta.
Jan 26 - 3:03 PM

Orioles designated OF Adam Brett Walker for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the return of Mark Trumbo. Walker has gone from the Twins to the Brewers to the Orioles on waivers this winter and is now back on them again. It's possible he'll be claimed again by another club.
Jan 20 - 11:07 AM

Orioles claimed OF Adam Brett Walker off waivers from the Brewers.

The Brewers claimed Walker off waivers a couple weeks ago but then took him off the 40-man roster shortly after. The Orioles have theoretical openings in right field and the designated hitter spots, so it's a good landing spot for the 29-year-old. Walker has monster power but also piles up strikeouts by the truckload.

Brewers designated OF Adam Brett Walker for assignment.

The move clears a roster spot for 29-year-old reliever Steve Geltz, who was claimed off waivers from the Rays on Monday afternoon. Walker slugged 27 home runs in 2016 at Triple-A Rochester -- affiliate of the Twins -- and figures to draw interest again on the waiver wire.

Brewers claimed OF Adam Brett Walker off waivers from the Twins.

Walker, 25, has consistently shown big power in the minors, slugging 27 dingers this past season at Triple-A Rochester. However, he swings and misses a ton, recording 202 whiffs in 2016.

Twins OF prospect Adam Brett Walker slugged three homers Saturday in a win for Triple-A Rochester.

Walker plated a season-high five runs while becoming the first Red Wing to homer three times in a game since Leo Gomez completed the trifecta in 1990. He's now gone deep five times in his last 11 at-bats. The 24-year-old has become a prolific power hitter with 93 round-trippers since the start of 2013. Walker is still hitting only .240 this year with 61 strikeouts in 125 at-bats.

Twins OF prospect Adam Brett Walker collected three hits Sunday in a win for Triple-A Rochester.

So far it's been smooth sailing for ADB in his first taste of Triple-A. Through three games, Walker is hitting .400 with an .800 slugging percentage. The 24-year-old power hitter established himself last year as one of the league's top prospects with 31 homers in 502 at-bats for Double-A Chattanooga. The main concern with Walker and probably the reason he hasn't made the leap to the big leagues yet is his huge strikeout rate. The former third-round pick struck out a whopping 195 times last season. The power is impressive but Walker still has a long way to go if he wants to be successful at the next level.

Twins optioned OF Adam Brett Walker and LHPs Pat Dean and LHP Mike Strong to Triple-A Rochester; optioned LHP Mason Melotakis and RHP JT Chargois to Double-A Chattanooga; optioned RHP Yorman Landa and LHP Randy Rosario to High-A Fort Myers.

No major surprises in this round of cuts from Twins camp. Walker tallied 31 home runs, 106 RBI, and 13 stolen bases in 133 games last season at the Double-A level, but plate discipline remains a serious issue for the 24-year-old corner outfielder. He had a .309 on-base percentage in 2015, and his career OBP in the minor leagues is just .311.

Twins purchased the contract of OF Adam Brett Walker from Double-A Chattanooga.

Walker was somewhat limited in his average at Double-A, but he showcased phenomenal power. The 24-year-old outfielder slashed .239/.309/.498 with 31 homers and 106 RBI. He also stole 13 bases. Both the homer and steal numbers are the best he's posted in his four years in the low levels of the Twins' minor league system.

Twins OF prospect Adam Brett Walker drilled his 30th home run Tuesday in a win for Double-A Chattanooga.

With teammates Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton up in Minnesota, it feels like Walker is the only one left in Chattanooga. From a pure power standpoint, Walker is right up there with some of the game's best prospects but his high strikeout numbers (188 Ks in 481 at-bats) and low batting average (.243) remain a concern. The 23-year-old has also flashed a decent set of wheels with 13 steals on 17 attempts this year. We'd expect him to make his big-league debut sometime in 2016.

Twins OF prospect Adam Brett Walker drilled his minor league-leading 21st homer Saturday for Double-A Chattanooga.

The 23-year-old has slugged three homers in his last four games. Walker leads the Southern League in home runs, RBI (63), slugging percentage (.592), strikeouts (107) and total bases (154). He's second behind teammate Miguel Sano with 48 runs scored. Walker's feast or famine approach might lead to a low average in the major leagues but his power will always be an asset.
