Player Notes
Taijuan Walker will pitch 30 innings in the Arizona Fall League.

Advice: Walker missed some time this season with a shoulder injury, so the Mariners want to get him some more innings going into the offseason. The 22-year-old posted a 2.61 ERA and 34/18 K/BB ratio in 38 innings across five starts and three relief appearances in the majors this year and should be a popular late-round flier in mixed leagues in 2015.

Taijuan Walker tossed an eight-inning complete game, allowing only one run, but suffered the loss on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Advice: Walker was out-dueled by Mark Buehrle, who was just a bit better on this particular evening. The right-hander limited the Jays to four hits and a walk while striking out six. The only run scored in the bottom of the eighth on a Ryan Goins RBI single. Walker didn't pitch deep in games after returning from his right shoulder injury in late June, but posted solid results in five starts and three relief appearances, ending his season with a 2.61 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a 34/18 K/BB ratio in 38 innings.
