The St. Louis Cardinals announced on Saturday that outfielder Jordan Walker has made the Opening Day roster. He is MLB’s No. 6 prospect.
The 20-year-old Walker was a first-round pick in 2020. He has made enough of an impression this spring to earn a spot on the roster.
The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Walker has immense strength, resulting in the kind of raw power that could make him a prototypical middle-of-the-order slugger.
Last year at Double-A Springfield, Walker hit an impressive .306 with 19 home runs, 68 RBI, and 22 stolen bases in 119 games.
This spring, Walker had a .295 batting average with three home runs, logging 18 hits in as many games.
