Mariners | Taijuan Walker optioned

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:53:25 -0700

The Seattle Mariners optioned SP Taijuan Walker to Triple-A Tacoma Wednesday, July 23. The team is expected to announce a corresponding move, likely a position player, before the game Thursday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Walker has walked 11 batters over nine innings in his last two starts. His long-term rotation spot is in jeopardy. James Paxton's (lat) return looms, and Erasmo Ramirez is pitching better.

Mariners | Will skip Taijuan Walker's next turn

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:49:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker will have his next turn skipped, as the club instead will have SP Hisashi Iwakuma start Tuesday, July 29. This will keep Iwakuma and the other starters on normal four days' rest.

Fantasy Tip: Walker's rotation spot may be tenuous as James Paxton (lat) nears a return and Erasmo Ramirez continues to impress.

Mariners | James Paxton update

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:35:31 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (lat) said he felt great Wednesday, July 23, after a three-inning rehab start Tuesday, July 22, for Triple-A Tacoma. He allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits while recording a walk and four strikeouts. He expects to make his next outing Sunday, July 27, before he and the club determine the next step.

Fantasy Tip: Paxton should get a chance to rejoin the rotation when he's healthy. Taijuan Walker's performance until then may determine who sticks in the bigs.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker expected to start Wednesday

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:42:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma Wednesday, July 23, to start against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Add Walker for tomorrow's start, and hope he sticks in the rotation. He should be owned in all deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker struggling

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:39:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is throwing 91 to 93 mph instead of his typical 93 to 98 mph. A scout said Walker is "far from dominant. Still not in top form. His value has to have diminished some."

Fantasy Tip: This may be a case where Walker will be more valuable to MLB and fantasy baseball clubs in 2015 than in 2014 as he continues to regain optimal form following his shoulder impingement. He's losing momentum on the trade market.
