November 23, 2022
Wallach signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Wednesday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Wallach was cast off the Angels' 40-man roster in early November and became a free agent after refusing an outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake. However, he'll return to the organization and is a strong candidate to serve as a non-roster invitee this spring. He hit .143 with a home run, four RBI and three runs over 12 games with the Angels last year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2018
Wallach has been a Quad-A player and backup catcher throughout his career, racking up only 165 career plate appearances in the big leagues entering his age-29 season. However, he ended the season as the primary catcher during the Marlins' playoff run. Even in the unlikely event that the Marlins continue to utilize Wallach as their primary backstop, he's shown little punch with his bat. In 165 plate appearances, he's posted only .209/.282/.318 line with a 31.5% strikeout rate. With his hard hit rate and other batted ball metrics also checking in below league average, it's difficult to spot the upside in Wallach's profile. Entering the 2021 campaign, Wallach will have to rely on his defensive value to earn playing time. However his grip on an everyday role appears tenuous, as Jorge Alfaro remains with the club and Sandy Leon was also added to the mix this offseason.
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.
