Some scouts believe Walcott could become the best player ever from the Bahamas, an emerging source of baseball talent. That upside landed him a $3.2 million bonus, the sixth-largest in the 2023 international class. He spent just nine games in the Rookie-level Dominican Summer League before making his U.S. debut last summer, then finished his pro debut in High-A at age 17.

While Walcott is still raw at the plate and struck out at a 30 percent clip in his first taste of pro ball, it's easy to dream on his tools and youth. He has a lightning-quick right-handed stroke with plenty of leverage, already can smoke balls in excess of 110 mph and could produce 30 or more homers per season when he adds some projectable strength and settles down his approach. He has the hand-eye coordination to make consistent contact but looks to pull and launch almost every pitch he sees.
