Jared James Walsh (born July 30, 1993) is an American professional baseball first baseman, outfielder, and relief pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Career[edit]

Walsh attended Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee, Georgia and played college baseball at the University of Georgia.[1][2] He was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in the 39th round of the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft.[3]

Walsh spent his first professional season with the Arizona League Angels and Orem Owlz. He played 2016 with the Burlington Bees, 2017 with the Inland Empire 66ers and Mobile BayBears, and 2018 with Inland Empire, Mobile and the Salt Lake Bees.[4] He also appeared in eight games as a relief pitcher in 2018.

The Angels invited Walsh to spring training in 2019, where they continued to use him as a two-way player.[5][6][7] He returned to Salt Lake to begin 2019.

On May 15, his contract was selected and he was called up to the major leagues.[8] He made his debut that day versus the Minnesota Twins, where he went 3 for 4.[9]
