Mariners | Taijuan Walker strong Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 20:18:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker allowed three hits and struck out six over 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Chicago White Sox Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is one of the most frustrating pitchers, looking unhittable one start and being shelled the next. He is a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Two SEA hurlers have innings limits

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 18:12:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners SPs Taijuan Walker and Mike Montgomery are expected to be shut down soon because they are close to reaching club targets for their maximum number of innings.

Fantasy Tip: It is currently unknown how many innings Walker ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) and Montgomery ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will be allowed to throw before they will be shut down. Walker is 8-7 with a 4.60 ERA through 141 innings this season, while Montgomery is 4-6 with a 4.16 ERA through 88.2 innings.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker stymies the Twins

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 05:20:35 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker allowed one run on a single hit and walk while striking out 11 batters during his complete-game win over the Minnesota Twins Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Walker's ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) polarizing performances from start to start are near maddening. His year-long numbers haven't recovered his early season beatings (8.74 ERA after five starts), and the gem Friday was preceded by a four-game string where he allowed 18 earned runs. Walker is an elite talent, and his struggles can likely be chalked up to inexperience. He projects to continue being a high-risk, high-reward start in all fantasy formats going forward.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker worked over

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 21:24:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker allowed five earned runs and seven hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,700; or 13.4% of cap) has been terrible in the month of July, going 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA in four starts. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he gets back on track.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker has uneven outing

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 04:50:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker gave up three home runs Tuesday, July 7, against the Detroit Tigers, but he ended up with a no-decision after his team regained the lead and then lost it in the eighth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) has still turned around his season despite a dismal first half. Tuesday's game could have been a win, but hot-seat closer Fernando Rodney may have put another nail in his coffin with a bad performance. Keep starting Walker in FantasyScore but beware of the bullpen.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker continues dominance

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:11:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker struck out seven batters over six scoreless innings while allowing just one hit during the Mariners' 7-0 win over the San Diego Padres Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) entered the start with a 5-1 record, a 1.91 ERA and 44 strikeouts through 42 1/3 innings over his previous six outings. He should be owned and started with confidence in all seasonal leagues, and FantasyScore players have an excellent option on their hands considering Walker's reasonable cap hit.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker has been nasty

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:47:46 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker has won four straight starts and is 5-1 with a 1.91 ERA in his last six outings. Walker is 6-6 on the season with a 4.64 ERA.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is almost a no-brainer play against the San Diego Padres Wednesday afternoon. The Padres are second in baseball with 512 strikeouts against right-handed pitchers, and Walker is fanning 8.8 hitters per nine innings this season. It also helps that the game is being played at pitcher-friendly Petco Park.

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 08:16:40 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has been very good this month with a 2.36 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 36 K's in 34 1/3 innings. He's a solid selection on FantasyScore in the spacious Petco Park.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker sets career high

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 05:00:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker set a new career high with 11 strikeouts Saturday, June 20, against the Houston Astros. Walker allowed five hits and three runs in 6 1/3 innings to improve to 4-1 in his last five starts, with an ERA of 2.04.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) began the season with a record of 1-5 and an ERA of 7.33 through his first nine starts, but he seems to have turned the corner. Walker will again have the opportunity for a high strikeout total in his next start, Friday, June 24, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker stymies Cleveland

Sat, 30 May 2015 06:32:31 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker pitched eight scoreless innings while allowing just two hits and striking out eight Cleveland Indians during the Mariners 2-1 win Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been a fantasy headache all season, as after a solid spring training, the heavily inked breakout candidate has been maddeningly inconsistent. He has five starts where he has allowed at least four earned runs and another five where he has allowed three or fewer. The upside is clearly there, but determining whether Jekyll or Hyde will take the mound each start is frustrating. Continue to view Walker as a high-risk, high-reward start until he strings together a few quality showings.
