Player Outlook
Jordan Walker was at the front of the line of the 2023 Shiny New Toy group with a monster spring training that had rapidly pushed him up March draft lists as fantasy managers were hoping for the next Julio Rodriguez. By season's end, the likes of Luke Raley, Ryan O'Hearn, and Brandon Marsh outearned Walker in overall fantasy value. Walker finished the season as an above average run producer (116 wRC+) but did not excel in any one category for the disappointing Cardinals team. Walker did get off to a strong start, but still went back to the minors at the end of April and also hit .209/.258/.352 in July which cut into his overall production. Normally this kind of season would push a player's draft value down to a more reasonable level, but Walker's upside is simply going to be too tempting for fantasy managers to resist. If he can pull the ball a little more, 30 homers should happen and it could also elevate him from the bottom half of the lineup.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Walker: Another day off Wednesday

  • Cardinals' Jordan Walker: Showing strikeout trouble

    Walker has gone 2-for-13 with seven strikeouts and a walk over his first five Grapefruit League games. Walker's seven strikeouts lead all Cardinals hitters this spring. The 21-year-old didn't have a terrible time with whiffs as a rookie last year, posting a middle-of-the-road 22.4 percent strikeout rate with a decent 8.1 percent walk rate. He hit .276 with a .787 OPS, 16 home runs, 51 RBI, 51 runs scored and seven stolen bases over 117 contests. Walker's still got untapped power potential, though he's likely to begin 2024 batting in the middle of the order as opposed to the top third.

He's batting .588 (10-for-17) with two homers and six RBI over that stretch.
