NY Mets minor league pitcher Josh Walker is rising fast

Brooklyn's Josh Walker (28) pitches during their game against the Asheville Tourists at McCormick field on Tuesday, May 4, 2021. The Tourists lost to the Cyclones 8-2.

What does the New York Mets farm system have left after promoting Tylor Megill? Apparently, they have a former 37th round draft pick named Josh Walker. He’s rising fast and on his way to becoming a legitimate option for the major leagues.

If you’re unfamiliar with Walker, that’s okay. Before this season he had never pitched above High-A. Not even a prospect for the club coming into this season, the 26-year-old has suddenly become a name to watch.
