Mariners | Taijuan Walker progressing slowly
Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker (shoulder) threw long toss at distances of between 120 and 150 feet in his latest session, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. "He threw the ball extremely well -- no pain whatsoever -- and he's got a smile on his face, so that's a good thing." The skipper doesn't want to establish a time table for Walker's return to exhibition action or his availability for the regular season. McClendon indicated he has no intention to push Walker.
Fantasy Tip: Walker is a top-rated talent and is deserving of fantasy attention late in drafts for mixed leagues, but if the M's prove to be overly cautious, then they're creating uncertainty about his availability and health. Let that thought serve as a tiebreaker between him and another high-upside arm in your drafts for now.
