Player Notes
Mariners optioned RHP Taijuan Walker to Triple-A Tacoma.

Advice: Walker was recalled to make the start Wednesday afternoon, but a return to Tacoma was always on the agenda. Walker allowed two runs over five innings in the start but was once again wild, walking six and hitting Ruben Tejada in the head with a pitch. He'll continue to refine his command at the minor league level.

Tue, Jul 29 Rotoworld
Taijuan Walker allowed two earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Mets.

Advice: Walker allowed only two hits but walked six in the shaky outing -- his first at the major league level since July 6. The 21-year-old right-hander is expected to be sent back to Triple-A Tacoma by Thursday afternoon.

Wed, Jul 23 Rotoworld
Taijuan Walker is expected to be sent down following Wednesday's start.

Advice: The Mariners have an off day Monday and plan to go with four starters for a while. Walker could potentially change their mind with a nice effort Wednesday, but it sounds like the top prospect will have a short stay with the big club.

Mariners recalled RHP Taijuan Walker from Triple-A Tacoma.

Advice: Walker will start on Wednesday against the Mets. The young right-hander has posted a 3.60 ERA while striking out nine over 10 innings in his two starts for the Mariners this season. He isn't guaranteed to stay over the long haul, but his upside makes him a worthy pick-up in any leagues where he's available.

Taijuan Walker will be recalled to start on Wednesday versus the Mets.

Advice: Walker has put up a 3.60 ERA while striking out nine over 10 innings in his two starts for the Mariners this season. With James Paxton (lat) slated to return pretty soon, Walker likely has to pitch well in order to remain in the rotation. Still, he makes for a nice streaming option Wednesday at the very least.

Taijuan Walker could be called up to start Wednesday against the Mets.

Advice: The Mariners have pushed back Hisashi Iwakuma and Felix Hernandez to start Thursday and Friday against the Orioles in Seattle, which leaves Wednesday up in the air. Walker is currently scheduled to start Wednesday in Triple-A, so it doesn't take a major leap of logic to say he's the likely option for the assignment.
