Michael Walsh, RHP, Lyons Township, 2019
Uncommitted junior. Currently ranked No. 91 in the 2019 Illinois’ class. 6-foot-3, 165-pound, right-handed pitching prospect, long-limbed frame, plenty room for physical development. Walsh started the continuation game for Lyons Township going 3.2 IP against St. Laurence inheriting a runner on first and second with one-out the 6th frame. The Junior struckout the 1-2 part of a potent offense ending the frame and continued the trend averaging one K an inning. He painted the corners with his high 80’s two-seam fastball and dropped his sharp 11/5 breaker in the zone allowing two hits, walking none and fanning five. The fastball ran, significantly at times, some tilt down in the zone, ranged 85-88 mph, touched 89 once.
