Zach Walters goes deep for third straight


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Indians infielder Zach Walters continues to make his impact felt, as he homered for the third straight game in a 5-1 loss to the Astros Friday.

Walters had just one hit in the game, going 1 for 3 with a solo home run. He now has eight home runs  in 75 at-bats for the season, including five in 10 games since joining the Indians. 


Zach Walters on the verge of mattering


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/21/2014) For the fourth time with the Indians and the seventh time in 72 big-league at-bats this year, Zach Walters homered Thursday. And judging by his 29 homers in 487 at-bats at Triple-A last year and his 17 homers in 268 at-bats at Triple-A this year, it's something he'll continue to do.

Though he's been playing DH for the Indians, Walters' most important attribute is that he's eligible at shortstop. Offensive production as a whole is scarce at the position, and power hitting especially.

So it's a match made in Fantasy heaven, at least in theory -- the same one that had Fantasy owners flocking to Javier Baez upon his arrival.

But while Baez has long been touted as a face-of-the-franchise type, Walters was just a spare part for the Nationals -- one easily expended at the trade deadline. While the disparity no doubt says something about Walters' upside, it may say even more about his downside. Quite simply, his shortcomings may prove to be more than he can overcome.

He's a swing-at-anything type, striking out more than 100 times more than he walked at Triple-A last year. He hit only .253 as a result, which doesn't bode well for his chances in the majors. If you need cheap homers, he's a sneaky way to get them out of a middle infield spot. Just don't expect much more than a .200 batting average from him.


Zach Walters officially on home run binge


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Indians infielder Zach Walters continued his home run binge Thursday against the Twins. 

Walters struck in the fifth inning. He took an 89 mph cutter from Phil Hughes out to right for the solo shot. He finished 1 for 3, with one run scored and one RBI. Walters struck out in his other two at-bats. Walters has now homered in four of his last eight games.


Zach Walters goes deep again


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Indians infielder Zach Walters hit his sixth home run Wednesday against the Twins.

Walters went deep in his first at-bat of the game. He belted an 82 mph splitter on the first pitch he saw from Ricky Nolasco. Walters finished 1 for 4, with one run scored and one RBI. Walters has now homered in three of his last seven games. 


Indians recall Tyler Holt, Zach Walters


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
