Zach Walters out for 3-4 weeks with oblique strain


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) Indians utility player Zach Walters will miss the rest of spring training, and possibly the start of the season, with an oblique injury.

MRI results on Saturday showed a high-grade strain of his right oblique.

"It's safe to say he's going to miss some time," Indians manager Terry Francona told MLB.com's Jordan Bastian. "Regardless of what the MRI says, you have to treat the symptoms. Guys can't start doing baseball activities until they're pain-free, and that varies with every one of them, regardless of what the diagnosis is."

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.

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

Zach Walters goes deep again


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
