Player Notes
Taijuan Walker was detonated again on Wednesday, this time for five runs on six hits and four walks across four innings in a loss to the Dodgers.

Advice: The hoping-to-contend Mariners have an interesting decision on their hands. They don't want to hurt the gifted Walker's confidence by shipping him to the minors prematurely, but this is the second straight start out of the chute where the opponent tacked up three runs in the first inning and the game appeared over prematurely. Though he gave up only two earned runs in 27 innings this spring, Walker has been a different -- and frankly bewildered -- pitcher since the season started, going 0-2 with a 17.18 ERA, detached steering wheel control and a WHIP near 3.

Taijuan Walker was lit up for nine runs and nine hits in 3 1/3 innings by the A's on Friday.

Advice: Walker gave up two earned runs in 27 innings this spring and three in his first inning of the regular season. It looked like he was settling down in the second and third, retiring five in a row at one point, but he then gave up hits to three of the four batters he faced to begin the fourth. Manager Lloyd McClendon then chose to have him intentionally walk Ben Zobrist and pulled him. It was a 6-0 game at that point, but all three inherited runners came around to score off Tom Wilhelmsen. Hopefully, Walker can put this one behind him in short order. The talent is certainly there, and while the command was lacking tonight, it seemed much improved during the spring. Don't go dropping him over one outing.
