Mariners | Taijuan Walker struggling

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:39:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is throwing 91 to 93 mph instead of his typical 93 to 98 mph. A scout said Walker is "far from dominant. Still not in top form. His value has to have diminished some."

Fantasy Tip: This may be a case where Walker will be more valuable to MLB and fantasy baseball clubs in 2015 than in 2014 as he continues to regain optimal form following his shoulder impingement. He's losing momentum on the trade market.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker being pushed back

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 11:37:48 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is being pushed back a day to start Friday, July 18, for Triple-A Tacoma. It means that he's unlikely to return to the fifth rotation spot next week.

Fantasy Tip: As has been the case all along, the Mariners aren't rushing Walker at the major league level. He will return to the majors probably shortly thereafter to rejoin the rotation. it's still a good idea to keep him stashed in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker likely called up for Monday's start

Sun, 29 Jun 2014 09:17:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker (shoulder) is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to start against the Houston Astros Monday, June 30. "As of now, if all goes well and it's not official, but we'll start Walker on Monday and a move is pending," Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said.

Fantasy Tip: Walker's season debut appears to finally be here. He is coming off a four-inning shutout in Triple-A ball, which was his best of the year. Walker posted a 1.80 ERA in one of his starts last year versus the Astros. Consider him a sound play in AL-only leagues and deep mixed formats.

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 11:41:40 -0700

The Seattle Mariners activated SP Taijuan Walker (shoulder) from the disabled list Tuesday, June 10, and optioned him to Triple-A Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Walker will continue to work in the minors. It's unclear when the Mariners will consider bringing him up to the majors to secure a rotation spot, but they clearly think he needs more work before that day comes. He's worth stashing in AL-only and deep mixed leagues.
