TAIJUAN WALKER RUMORS

Disgrace and Delight, Week 7: Taijuan Walker’s Plummet to Peasantry

Greetings! How's your week going? Swimmingly, I pray. How's mine? First off, thanks for asking, for it's much appreciated. I have a 88-year-old Grandmother with a severe alzheimer's and a broken hip, so things could certainly be better. That's without mentioning what is seemingly a wasted season for Corey Dickerson and sliding in at dead last in one my RCL leagues. Ahhhhh, the Elder...

Don’t Worry About Taijuan Walker’s Struggles, He’ll Be Fine

The pressure of being a top pitching prospect can be very overwhelming. For Taijuan Walker however, some of the pressure on Walker is relieved thanks to the presence of a pitcher named Felix Hernandez — I don’t know if you’ve heard of him — atop the Seattle Mariners’ rotations. With Hernandez holding that spot down Walker’s expectations drop off a bit, but there is...

The Good and the Worse of Taijuan Walker’s Changeup

It’s obvious, now, that Taijuan Walker is going to enter the season as a member of the Mariners’ rotation. He survived an offseason of trade rumors and beat out the recently-demoted Roenis Elias, and this is the kind of thing that can happen when you’re a pitcher who allows but a single run in 25 […]

Seattle Mariners: Who should win the 5th Spot in the Rotation?

The battle for the last spot in the Seattle Mariners pitching rotation has been escalating during spring training. Highly-rated prospect Taijuan Walker has been pitching absolutely lights out this spring, while 2014 breakout Roenis Elias has also had a solid spring. Both starters are slated to get another start before manager Lloyd McClendon makes a final decision on the rotation...

Should The Seattle Mariners trade Ackley And Walker?

The Time For A Deal Is Now The Seattle Mariners have a problem and it’s not a new problem either. Fresh out of the All-Star break the same thing that haunts this team is still present.  I guess I shouldn’t have expected it to go away just because the M’s had a few days off. The problem is easily identifiable if you watched the most recent series against the Angels. The M’s...

Hold Taijuan Walker: Why you’ll see the M’s Starter back in the rotation soon

In case you missed it, Taijuan Walker was optioned to AAA Tacoma on Wednesday, three days after a rough outing against the Chicago White Sox. That’s not the PSA though, in fact, its hardly relevant – if you hadn’t read it here, Walker could be back in the Major Leagues before you know it. There are different schools of thought as to whether the demotion is performance based...

Taijuan Walker Off The DL But Optioned To AAA

Taijuan Needs More Time It was a good news, bad news kind of week for the Seattle Mariners when it comes to their prized pitching prospect Taijuan Walker. Walker had his third rehab start since the most recent shoulder injury setback on Monday, and this time the results were a bit better.  Walker managed to throw 77 pitches over five innings giving up four hits and two runs.  Both...
