Walsh isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Houston.
Walsh will head to the bench for the second straight contest. Albert Pujols draws the start at first base and is set to bat third.
Walsh is not starting Thursday against the Astros.
Walsh is sitting for Thursday's series opener with a left-hander in Wade Miley starting for Houston. Albert Pujols is starting at first base in his place, with Taylor Ward entering the lineup at DH.
Walsh is not starting Wednesday against the Yankees.
Walsh has been handed a fair number of opportunities this month, starting each of the previous four games at first base, but he hasn't done much with them. He's gone 3-for-22 at the plate in September. Albert Pujols will be the first baseman Wednesday, with Taylor Ward serving as the designated hitter.
Walsh will start at first base and bat eighth Sunday against the Rays.
Walsh will draw his third consecutive start after going 1-for-7 with a double and four strikeouts in the first two games of the series. The lefty-hitting rookie's inclusion in the lineup for the series finale is somewhat surprising, given that the Rays are bringing a lefty (Ryan Yarbrough) to the hill. At least for now, Walsh looks like he'll have a path to steady playing time with Albert Pujols on track to see most of the starts at designated hitter now that Shohei Ohtani (elbow, knee) has been shut down for the season.
Walsh hit a solo home run in his lone at-bat in a loss to Cleveland on Monday.
Walsh stepped up to the plate as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and crushed a 419-foot shot to center field for his first major-league home run. The 30-year-old racked up 36 long balls with Triple-A Salt Lake this season while slashing .325/.423/.686 in 98 games.
The Angels recalled Walsh from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Red Sox.
Walsh will rejoin the Angels as a September callup after torching Pacific Coast League pitching throughout the campaign, batting .325 while ranking third on the circuit with 36 home runs. The 26-year-old boasts impressive raw power and augments his value by offering the Angels another bullpen arm from the left side, but those skills aren't likely to earn him steady work in the final few weeks of the season.
Walsh went 4-for-6 with three home runs and five RBI for Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.
This was Walsh's second three-homer game in the minors this season, with the other occurring July 23. The 26-year-old has displayed prodigious power with Salt Lake in 2019, mashing 34 home runs to rank fourth in the Pacific Coast League. He has also compiled an impressive .328/.430/.695 slash line while knocking in 80 runs in 93 games. Walsh has received four callups to the Angels this season, hitting .237 with no long balls in 38 at-bats. He is likely to rejoin the big club when rosters expand in September.
Walsh was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Walsh was recalled from Salt Lake on Sunday and went 1-for-5 with three strikeouts during his brief stint in the majors. The 26-year-old makes his return to Triple-A, where he has a .329/.433/.687 slash line with 29 home runs in 81 games.
The Angels recalled Walsh from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Sunday's game against the Indians, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Walsh will move up to the big club for the fourth time this season after going 8-for-33 with 13 strikeouts across his previous three stints. Since Albert Pujols and Shohei Ohtani are locked in as the Angels' primary options at first base and designated hitter, respectively, Walsh doesn't project to see steady at-bats while the players ahead of him on the depth chart are both healthy.
Walsh was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Sunday's game against the Mariners.
He only got one at-bat during his most recent stint with the big-league club. Walsh will continue to serve as organizational depth going forward and will rejoin the big-league club in September, if not sooner.
Walsh was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Walsh is hitting .250 with two RBI and two extra-base hits over 14 games in this season in the big leagues. He's also surrendered one run over 3.1 innings. The Angels also recalled Jaime Barria and have optioned Jake Jewell and designated Matt Harvey for assignment in corresponding moves.
Walsh was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.
The two-way player has allowed one run in 3.1 innings of work on the mound while hitting .250/.294/.313 at the plate in 34 plate appearances this season. The Angels will not call up a player to replace him immediately, playing Tuesday's game with 24 players as a symbolic gesture after pitcher Tyler Skaggs passed away Monday.
Walsh was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Walsh was called up in mid-May for his first taste of the big leagues and had a .607 OPS in 34 plate appearances before returning to Salt Lake in early June. The 25-year-old is working as a two-way player this season and allowed one run over two innings on the mound with the Angels.
Walsh was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.

Walsh remains out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Even with the Angels flying from Seattle to Chicago for a second consecutive day game, Albert Pujols won't receive the afternoon off, leaving no room in the starting nine for Walsh. After busting out for three hits in his MLB debut May 15 in Minnesota, Walsh has started in just five of the Angels' subsequent 17 games and has logged 21 plate appearances in total. With Justin Bour on fire at Triple-A Salt Lake and making a case for a promotion back to the big club, Walsh could soon be sent back to the minors in order to pick up regular playing time.
Walsh is starting at first base and hitting eighth Wednesday against the Twins, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Walsh worked as a two-way player in the minors, though it remains to be seen whether he'll continue those efforts with the big club. He's making his major-league debut at first base after hitting .302/.398/.604 with 10 homers in 37 games for Triple-A Salt Lake. Justin Bour was sent to Salt Lake in a corresponding move, so Walsh figures to settle in as the Angels' backup first baseman, and he could steal playing time from Albert Pujols against right-handed pitching if he holds his own at the dish.
Walsh will be called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Walsh worked as a two-way player in spring training and continued those efforts with the Bees, posting an impressive .302/.398/.604 slash line with 10 home runs while also allowing only two runs on five hits across five innings on the mound. The 25-year-old has limited minor-league experience as a pitcher, but his numbers at the plate this season illustrate his ability as a hitter. Given the corresponding move for his promotion was optioning Justin Bour to Salt Lake, Walsh's primary role figures to be as a backup first baseman and bench option, though the Angels have yet to officially announce their plans for him.
Walsh was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday.
Walsh worked as a two-way player this spring. As a hitter, he posted an .890 OPS in 23 plate appearances. On the pitching side (the side of the ball where he has far less experience), he allowed three runs in 4.2 innings while recording a 3:4 K:BB. He's not on the 40-man roster, so his debut may not be imminent, but his flexibility (assuming he pitching well enough to stick with the experiment) opens up more avenues to an eventual big-league callup.
Walsh is working out as a two-way player this spring, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Walsh spent the 2018 season as a first baseman and outfielder in the Angels' organization, slashing .277/.359/.536 with 29 homers and 99 RBI across the three highest levels of the minor leagues. He's adding another element to his repertoire in an effort to break camp in the big leagues. However, Walsh isn't on the 40-man roster right now, so he faces a bit of an uphill climb to garner an active roster spot. He does throw left-handed, though, and the Angels have few southpaws in the major-league bullpen.
