    Phillies' Taijuan Walker on way back, but Spencer Turnbull looks like a keeper

    Before a game that saw Spencer Turnbull going into the seventh inning before finally yielding as much as a single, his would-be replacement in the Phillies starting rotation was saying again that he's just about ready to return. Taijuan Walker, the workhorse back-of-the-rotation starter last season who wasn't needed in the postseason, is aiming for one more rehabilitation outing before anticipating a return to active duty next week. Walker, recovering from a right shoulder issue that ate into much of his spring training, pitched smoothly in a bullpen session Friday and will have one more rehab start Sunday in Moosic for the IronPigs. “We just want to see, make sure he's OK,” manager Rob Thomson said.
