Hitting prospect Jordan Walker (21, St. Louis Cardinals) will undergo adjustments.
MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League Baseball (MLB), reported that St. Louis sent Walker down to Triple-A Memphis in the minor leagues. Walker, who made his big league debut on the 31st of last month, performed sensationally with his ‘debut 12 consecutive hits’ until the match against the Colorado Rockies on the 13th. It is the first time since Eddie Murphy in 1912 that a player under the age of 21 recorded hits in all 12 games of his MLB debut.
Walker’s batting average during the consecutive hitting period was 0.319 (15 hits in 47 at-bats) with 2 home runs and 8 RBIs. The combined OPS of on-base percentage (0.360) and slugging percentage (0.489) was 0.849. However, after his record was broken, his grades plummeted. From the Pittsburgh Pirates game on the 14th to the Seattle Mariners game on the 24th, his batting average was only 0.192 (4 hits in 26 at bats). Both on-base and long hits creaked. According to MLB.com, Walker showed a certain degree of coping with breaking pitches with a batting average of 0.333 and fastballs at 0.259, but is recording no hits in 7 at-bats against off-speed pitches. As a result, he was notified of a triple A row. 먹튀검증
