The Seattle Mariners optioned SP Taijuan Walker to Triple-A Tacoma Wednesday, July 23. The team is expected to announce a corresponding move, likely a position player, before the game Thursday, July 24.
Fantasy Tip: Walker has walked 11 batters over nine innings in his last two starts. His long-term rotation spot is in jeopardy. James Paxton's (lat) return looms, and Erasmo Ramirez is pitching better.

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker will have his next turn skipped, as the club instead will have SP Hisashi Iwakuma start Tuesday, July 29. This will keep Iwakuma and the other starters on normal four days' rest.
Fantasy Tip: Walker's rotation spot may be tenuous as James Paxton (lat) nears a return and Erasmo Ramirez continues to impress.

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (lat) said he felt great Wednesday, July 23, after a three-inning rehab start Tuesday, July 22, for Triple-A Tacoma. He allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits while recording a walk and four strikeouts. He expects to make his next outing Sunday, July 27, before he and the club determine the next step.
Fantasy Tip: Paxton should get a chance to rejoin the rotation when he's healthy. Taijuan Walker's performance until then may determine who sticks in the bigs.
