Walsh went 2-for-5 with a solo home run during Friday's loss to the Dodgers.
Walsh extended the Angels' lead with a solo shot against Brusdar Graterol in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has tallied nine home runs so far this year to go with a .297/.323/.659 slash line.
Walsh went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Monday's 8-5 victory over the Rangers.
Walsh gave his club some breathing room in the fourth inning, clubbing a home run with the bases loaded to increase the Angels' lead to five. The 27-year-old has been impressive so far this season, slashing .312/.333/.701 with eight home runs and 23 RBI through 27 contests.
Walsh went 1-for-4 with a base hit Sunday in the Angels' 7-2 loss to the Rangers.
Walsh had a stretch of 10 consecutive contests with at least one RBI come to an end earlier in the series with Texas, but he's able to maintain a 12-game hitting streak heading into the Angels' home finale Monday. The 27-year-old -- who will bat second and start at first base Monday -- has emerged as a fantasy force since the calendar flipped to September. After going hitless over 13 at-bats in August, Walsh has slashed an incredible .383/.403/.833 with seven home runs, 19 RBI and 15 runs in 16 games this month.
Walsh went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk and an additional run scored in a loss to Arizona on Wednesday.
That makes six homers in seven games for Walsh, who pummeled a Taylor Clarke changeup for a long ball Wednesday. It has been a remarkable turnaround for the 27-year-old, who entered September with no hits in 13 at-bats. Since the start of the month, Walsh has slashed .422/.440/1.022 with seven homers, 17 RBI and 14 runs. Among players with at least 50 plate appearances this season, Walsh ranks first in ISO (.466) and second in OPS (1.142).
Walsh went 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles and three RBI in Tuesday's loss to Arizona.
Walsh knocked Madison Bumgarner around for a pair of doubles and a long ball. He was responsible for the Angels' first three runs of the contest, slugging a solo homer to right field in the third inning and a two-run double in the fifth. Walsh hasn't been picky about who he dominates lately; over his last six games, he has gone 12-for-27 (.444) with five homers and 12 RBI. That has helped him bring his slash line up to an impressive .315/.328/.759 overall.
Walsh went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in a win over the Rockies on Saturday.
Walsh was moved up to the second spot in the lineup for Saturday's tilt and came through with a three-run shot to right field in the 11th inning that provided the winning runs. After a rough start to the campaign, Walsh has taken off in September, collecting at least one hit in eight of nine contests and going 12-for-31 (.387) overall. He has homered in each of his last four games, driving in eight runs over that span.
Walsh went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 8-4 loss to the Rockies.
Walsh singled and scored in the first inning, but his biggest hit Friday was a game-tying, eighth-inning solo shot. The first baseman has now homered in three straight games. He's got four round-trippers this season, along with nine RBI, nine runs scored and a .256/.262/.667 slash line across 42 plate appearances.
Walsh went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Rangers.
Walsh gave the Angels a 3-0 lead with his long ball off Kyle Gibson in the first. It marked the second game in a row with a homer for the first baseman. With the Angels expected to give plenty of opportunities to their younger players, Walsh should see a fair share of the time at first base during the season's final weeks.
Walsh will start at first base and will bat fifth Thursday against the Rangers, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
He'll crack the lineup for the third time in four games, with two of those starts coming against right-handed pitchers. Walsh has gotten off to a nice start to September with four extra-base hits in 18 at-bats, but the 27-year-old still needs to prove he can make consistent contact versus MLB pitching in order to ensure he sticks around with the Angels on a more permanent basis. With Los Angeles sitting on a 17-27 record and likely to use the final few weeks of the season to evaluate younger options, look for Walsh to continue to cut into 40-year-old Albert Pujols' time at first base.
Walsh went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a pair of strikeouts against Texas on Tuesday.
Walsh plated the Angels' lone run in the loss, taking Lance Lynn deep in the fifth inning. The blast was Walsh's second in the last four games and accounted for his fifth RBI over that span. The 27-year-old is still hitting a paltry .194 on the season.
Walsh explained Saturday that he missed the beginning part of summer camp due to a positive test for COVID-19, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Walsh indicated that his positive test came a week before the start of camp, providing an explanation for why he did not report until July 9. The 27-year-old has spent much of the campaign at the team's alternate training site and is slashing a paltry .125/.154/.333 with one home run in 26 plate appearances with the big club. Walsh added that he won't be pitching this season but still plans to train as a pitcher in the offseason, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic.
Walsh went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, another RBI and a walk during Friday's win against Houston.
Walsh extended the lead with a solo home run against Luis Garcia in the third inning. It was the first MLB homer for the 27-year-old, who was optioned to alternate camp in early August, but returned to the active roster on Aug. 28. Walsh went hitless at 0-for-10 to begin the season.
Walsh was recalled from the Angels' alternate training site Friday.
Walsh was optioned to alternate camp in early August, but he'll return to the active roster. The 27-year-old went hitless in 10 at-bats to begin the season and likely won't play a significant role while serving in a depth role in the near future.
Walsh was optioned to the Angels' alternate training site Monday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
Walsh made the Angels' Opening Day roster and received a handful of opportunities early in the season, but he failed to grab a single hit in 10 at-bats. If he returns to the roster at some point this season, it will likely be in a minor role.
The Angels recalled Walsh from their alternate training site Thursday.
Walsh boasts intriguing power, but since he's limited defensively to first base, he won't have a path to a regular role unless Albert Pujols is forced to miss time. The 26-year-old logged 87 plate appearances in his MLB debut season in 2019, batting .203 while striking out 40.2 percent of the time.
Walsh (undisclosed) reported to the Angels' camp Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Walsh missed the first several workouts of camp for an undisclosed reason, but he arrived Thursday and apparently cleared intake testing as he was able to train with the team. It's unclear whether the 26-year-old's late arrival will impact his readiness for the start of the regular season.
Walsh still hasn't reported to the Angels' camp for an undisclosed reason, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times report.
Manager Joe Maddon revealed Tuesday that Walsh still hasn't reported to camp, although he wasn't able to provide a reason for his absence. The 26-year-old is no lock to make the team's 30-man roster to begin the regular season, and it's unclear when he'll be able to resume baseball activities. Whether his absence will impact his readiness for Opening Day remains to be seen.
Walsh could make the Angels' 30-man roster if Matt Thaiss (undisclosed) is unable to play at the start of the season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Walsh's chances of breaking camp with the big-league club appeared slim after he was optioned to the minors in late March following a rough spring at the plate, and he could still end up off the active roster despite its expansion to 30 players to begin the campaign. However, with Thaiss -- the team's expected backup to Albert Pujols at first base -- yet to report to camp, Walsh could be needed to fill a bench role if Thaiss is unable to play at the outset of the season.
Walsh could begin the season in the majors if rosters expand as expected, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Walsh struggled to a .150/.320/.350 slash line over 25 Cactus League plate appearances, leading to a Triple-A assignment in late March. However, with rosters likely to expand in the event a 2020 season is able to be salvaged, he could find himself with a "niche" role with the Angels, according to Ardaya. That likelihood is bolstered by Walsh's ability to double as a pitcher.
Walsh was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Walsh struggled through spring training with a .150/.320/.350 slash line and one home run in 11 contests, and he's set to begin the season at Triple-A. Walsh has worked as a two-way player over the last couple seasons, but MLB's new policy for two-way players in 2020 may make it difficult for him to earn such a designation.
