Mariners | Taijuan Walker continues dominance

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:11:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker struck out seven batters over six scoreless innings while allowing just one hit during the Mariners' 7-0 win over the San Diego Padres Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) entered the start with a 5-1 record, a 1.91 ERA and 44 strikeouts through 42 1/3 innings over his previous six outings. He should be owned and started with confidence in all seasonal leagues, and FantasyScore players have an excellent option on their hands considering Walker's reasonable cap hit.

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:47:46 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker has won four straight starts and is 5-1 with a 1.91 ERA in his last six outings. Walker is 6-6 on the season with a 4.64 ERA.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is almost a no-brainer play against the San Diego Padres Wednesday afternoon. The Padres are second in baseball with 512 strikeouts against right-handed pitchers, and Walker is fanning 8.8 hitters per nine innings this season. It also helps that the game is being played at pitcher-friendly Petco Park.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker sets career high

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 05:00:00 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) began the season with a record of 1-5 and an ERA of 7.33 through his first nine starts, but he seems to have turned the corner. Walker will again have the opportunity for a high strikeout total in his next start, Friday, June 24, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker stymies Cleveland

Sat, 30 May 2015 06:32:31 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker pitched eight scoreless innings while allowing just two hits and striking out eight Cleveland Indians during the Mariners 2-1 win Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been a fantasy headache all season, as after a solid spring training, the heavily inked breakout candidate has been maddeningly inconsistent. He has five starts where he has allowed at least four earned runs and another five where he has allowed three or fewer. The upside is clearly there, but determining whether Jekyll or Hyde will take the mound each start is frustrating. Continue to view Walker as a high-risk, high-reward start until he strings together a few quality showings.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker's struggles continue

Sun, 24 May 2015 15:06:33 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker fell to 0-4 in six starts on the road this season as the Mariners fell 8-2 to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, May 24. He allowed four runs and six hits in 5-2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has had struggles this season, but it sounds like manager Lloyd McClendon is still a believer in him. However, you should keep your distance until Walker turns things around.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker having hard-luck start

Mon, 18 May 2015 04:47:05 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker has held opponents to three runs or fewer in four of his last five starts.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) carries a 1-4 record and 7.22 ERA into his start Monday, May 18, and that record is largely due to a horrific early-season slump. He appears to be stabilizing, although you may want to hold off on starting him until Walker appears to have all the yips out of the way.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker, Roenis Elias flipping spots

Tue, 12 May 2015 13:34:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker and SP Roenis Elias are flipping spots in the pitching rotation. Elias will now pitch Thursday, May 14, against the San Diego Padres, and Walker will go on Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Elias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) flipped spots so Elias wouldn't have to face the San Diego Padres' lineup of right-handed hitters. Walker has struggled in his first several starts so you may want to avoid this matchup. Elias is definitely a better start for now.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker with good matchup?

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 11:10:57 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is 3-0 with a 2.91 ERA in three career starts against the Houston Astros. He's 0-2 with a 17.18 ERA to begin the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is a risk/reward FantasyScore selection tonight against the Houston Astros. Houston is a very strikeout-prone team, but they also can go deep with the best of them. Walker is a sleeper play if you're looking to go against the grain. Hey, at least he'll be in a pitcher's park this evening.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker roughed up

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 20:53:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker allowed nine runs on nine hits in 3 1/3 innings against the Oakland Athletics Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) was a popular sleeper heading into the season, and while he has the stuff to become special, tonight's outing was a reminder that young pitchers are not always the most reliable fantasy options. Consider him a matchup play at FantasyScore for now.
