Meet Ryan Garko.
The former Stanford University baseball star, who is now with the Cleveland Indians, did not prep at a local high school, but he did grow up in Walnut and still calls the (909) city home.
Many are expecting this to be a break-out year for the Walnutite.
Garko, who played high school baseball for Servite, hit .292 with seven home runs in just 185 bats in his rookie season two years ago, then followed it up by hitting .289 with 21 homers last season. Is .300 and 30 knocks around the corner this season?
Many are expecting those type of numbers, so he could be a steal in your fantasy baseball league drafts.
