Latest News
Taijuan Walker worth a prospective pickup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/3/14) In a recent post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, I called Taijuan Walker one of the September callups who could matter in Fantasy, and the latest news out of Seattle explains why. Manager Lloyd McClendon is beginning to question how much Chris Young has left in the tank following his implosion Monday. Walker threw six innings of relief in that game, allowing one run on six hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

His numbers at Triple-A Tacoma weren't so great, but that happens in the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League. It happened last year to James Paxton, who went on to go 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in four starts last September, and Walker is considered the more talented of the two. He's also more than 50 innings away from last year's total, giving him plenty left in the tank.

Starting pitchers aren't exactly in short supply in standard mixed leagues right now, but if you're looking to gamble on an upside play, Walker certainly fits the bill.

Chris Young could be out and Taijuan Walker in Seattle rotation
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/14) Chris Young could be out of the Mariners rotation. Rookie Taijuan Walker could be in.

That is the result the last two appearances from both pitchers. Young was mashed for five runs in 2/3 of an inning Monday in Oakland and has yielded eight runs in his last 4 1/3 innings. The fear is that he could be hitting a wall at 151 innings pitched this season.

"He's in uncharted territory," Lloyd McClendon told the Tacoma News Tribune. "I've got to watch him. I've got to evaluate him. I've got to make a decision."

McClendon indicated that Walker would replace Young in the rotation. Walker gave up just one run in six innings against Oakland in relief of Young.

"Obviously, he pitched extremely well," McClendon said. "I think it showed you what he's capable of. We've just got to get him to the point where he can be consistent every time out with that."

Taijuan Walker tosses six one-run innings in relief Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/14) Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker came up big for the team Monday, giving up just one earned run on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out five in his team's 6-1 loss to the A's.

Walker was called upon to start the second inning after starter Chris Young couldn't make it out of the first, and his first appearance back in the big leagues went exceedingly well, with Walker throwing 61 of his 89 pitches for strikes. He could be a contender to make a few starts in September. Walker owns a 3.00 ERA and 19:15 K:BB ratio in 21 innings.

Erasmo Ramirez, Taijuan Walker expected to pitch long relief in September
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/1/14) Mariners pitcher Erasmo Ramirez is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday. Ramirez -- along with Taijuan Walker -- will pitch long relief for the final month of the season, per MLB.com.
