Zach Walters: Hitter of Homeruns

Zach Walters was traded from the Washington Nationals to the Cleveland Indians before the Trade Deadline in the Asdrubal Cabrera deal.  He is a 24 year old prospect that is capable of playing all over the field, so as long as he hits, he'll find a way into the lineup.  Walters doesn't have much to show for in terms of batting average (.208 in 72 at bats).  However, when he does seem to get a hit, it often goes over the fence.  Of his 15 hits this season, 7 have gone for homeruns.  Splits: Nationals - 8 H, 3 HR, Indians - 7 H, 4 HR, which equals a .514 slugging percentage.
