The organization released its list of 10 finalists Wednesday.

The Stopper of the Year Award winner will be announced at a press conference at Charles Schwab Field Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska June 17.

Walsh, a Louisville, Tennessee native and Alcoa High School (Alcoa, Tennessee) graduate, leads the Volunteers with seven saves.

Walsh has recorded 23 career saves and is tied with Todd Helton for the most saves in school history.
