Pops first homer
CMiami Marlins
April 16, 2019
Wallach went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Monday's loss to the Cubs.
ANALYSIS
The catcher took Yu Darvish deep in the fourth inning for his first homer of the year. Jorge Alfaro (chest) is banged up at the moment, so Wallach could see consistent at-bats in the short term. He's taken advantage of his opportunities so far, slashing .333/.462/.524 in eight games, but the 27-year-old's .619 career OPS indicates the bottom could drop out in a hurry.

March 15, 2015
Is this the start of a third run to a World Series for the Marlins? If so, players like Marcel Ozuna will need continued steps forward.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
In November, Wallach was claimed off waivers by the Marlins and thus reunited with the organization that drafted him in the fifth round in 2013. Wallach got his first taste of big-league action with the Reds last season, but spent the bulk of the year with the team's Triple-A Louisville affiliate. He hit for more power than ever with Louisville, muscling nine homers in 243 at-bats, but the increased pop came with more strikeouts (25.5 percent strikeout rate). The swing-and-miss was a big problem in his limited sample in the big leagues. After showing good patience at the lower levels, Wallach's walk rate fell to just 5.3 percent at Triple-A. J.T. Realmuto has expressed his desire to be included as part of the mass exodus from Miami, and if Realmuto is dealt, Wallach could crack the Opening Day roster. However, he should be considered a big batting average risk.
