    • Adam Walker: Cut loose by Baltimore
      By RotoWire Staff

      Walker was released by the Orioles on Sunday. Walker has been a member of four different organizations since the end of last season, and he'll now search for a new landing spot after struggling mightily with the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate at Norfolk. The power-hitting outfielder managed just six hits in 67 at-bats and posted a 38.8 strikeout percentage across 18 games. He may have to prove his worth in the Double-A ranks with his next organization before getting another look in the minors' highest level.

    • Orioles' Adam Walker: Signs with Orioles
      By RotoWire Staff

      Walker signed a minor-league deal with the Orioles on Wednesday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports. This is Walker's second stint with Baltimore. The Braves had claimed him off waivers in January, but outrighted him off their 40-man roster by the end of the month. The 25-year-old has great power potential but strikes out a bunch. In 14 games with Double-A Mississippi this season, Walker hit just .122 with four home runs (six hits total) and 12 RBI over 55 plate appearances.

    • Braves' Adam Walker: Outrighted off 40-man roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Walker was outrighted off the Braves' 40-man roster Tuesday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. It's been a busy offseason for Walker -- he's bounced from Minnesota to Milwaukee to Baltimore to Atlanta. The Braves claimed Walker off waivers less than a week ago but ultimately decided that 40-man spot would be better utilized on another player. There's no doubting Walker's tremendous raw power, but that power comes with a ton of swing and miss (397 strikeouts over the past two seasons) and there doesn't seem to be a lot of optimism that he will correct the holes in his swing.

    • Braves' Adam Walker: Claimed by Braves
      By RotoWire Staff

      Walker was claimed by Atlanta on Thursday, MASN's Roch Kubakto reports. Atlanta becomes Walker's fourth organization of the offseason. The 25-year-old outfielder was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday to make room for Mark Trumbo on the 40-man roster. Walker has issues with the strikeout, as he went down on strikes 38 percent of the time with Triple-A Rochester in 2016, negating some of his exciting raw power. He hit 27 home runs and slashed .243/.305/.479 in 531 at bats over 132 games in 2016. He did hit better against lefties, slashing .264/.333/.552 against southpaws last season. If he finds his way onto the major league roster, he likely wouldn't find consistent playing time due to his issues with the strikeout.

    • Orioles' Adam Walker: Designated for assignment
      By RotoWire Staff

      Walker was designated for assignment on Friday. He was claimed off waivers by the Brewers in November and then the Orioles claimed him in December, so he could be in line to join his fourth organization of the offseason. Regardless of where he ends up, Walker has monster raw power but is unable to make enough contact to even profile as a Chris Carter type. This move was made so that the Orioles could add Mark Trumbo to the 40-man roster.
