Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker to start Cactus League opener

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/1/15) Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker will be given the nod for Seattle when the team makes the Cactus League debut Wednesday against the Padres, reports MLB.com.

Walker is battling with Roenis Elias for the final spot in the Mariners' rotation when the season begins. Walker admits to being a little banged up early last season.

"I wasn't available to do anything -- I wasn't even playing catch [at this time last year]," Walker said before the Mariners' workout Sunday morning. "So to be able to start a game in spring and actually have a Spring Training feels good."

Walker posted a 2-3 record with a 2.61 ERA in 38 innings in 2014 and hopes he can make an impression with his start Wednesday.

"It's a game, and it's a competition," Walker said. "I'm just going to go out there and do the best that I can. So if that means I have to go out there and go full speed, then I will."

Roenis Elias battling Taijuan Walker for Mariners rotation spot

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/15) Three years after coming to American from Cuba, LHP Roenis Elias jumped from Double-A to the Mariners, last season. Now, he finds himself fighting to keep his spot in the starting rotation. 

Despite going 10-12, with a 3.85 ERA in 29 starts for the Mariners last year and becoming one of the rookie surprises in the American League, Elias opens spring training battling Taijuan Walker for the fifth spot in the rotation. 

The right-handed Walker is a first-round draft pick of the Mariners, and a top pitching prospect in the organization. 

That means Elias could find himself starting the season back in the minors. 

"There's not a lot of difference between this year and last," he told MLB.com's Greg Johns. "Last year I didn't come in with a spot and this year you could say the same thing. I have to work hard and do what I did last year and even improve on that."

Even if he doesn't win the job in spring, he's earned the respect of Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon. 

"He's got to get stronger," McClendon said. "He pitched well when he was healthy. He's got a dynamic curveball. The change-up got better at the end of the year. His consistency with the fastball command needs to be better and if he does that, he has a chance to be a pretty darn good pitcher in this league for a long time."

Mariners developed new offseason program for Taijuan Walker

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/15) Taijuan Walker will head to camp this spring competing with Roenis Elias and Erasmo Ramirez for the final spot in the Mariners' rotation. Walker is looking forward to battling for a spot in the rotation, per MLB.com.

"I feel like since I've been drafted, there's always been a lot of depth," Walker said. "We've had a lot of really good arms every year. It's fun competition. You want to go out there and do your best. Pitching against other guys and fighting for that spot brings out the best in everyone."

Walker arrived to camp last spring dealing with a sore shoulder, which set him back. However, the Mariners believe the highly touted prospect will be in better shape this spring.

"The thing about Taijuan is he's still growing," trainer Rick Griffin said. "He's still very young. When he lifts weights, he gets big very quickly and he learned that last year. He didn't do anything wrong. His body type is just such that when he lifts weights, he gets big quickly. So we completely changed his routine this offseason.

"He's doing things that basically center around his core, his legs and his cardio. He's not doing a lot of lifting for his upper body other than things he needs to do to maintain his flexibility and his shoulder strength. We feel going into spring that he'll be a lot better off in that way."

Stiff competition for fifth spot in Mariners' rotation

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/25/15) Taijuan Walker, Roenis Elias and Erasmo Ramirez are the leading candidates for the fifth spot in the Mariners' starting rotation, reports the Tacoma News Tribune. "The more competition, the better," Walker told the paper.

"It brings out the best of everyone who is fighting for the spot."

Walker posted a 1.96 ERA in six outings last September after being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.

Zduriencik: Mariners remain 'very pleased' with Taijuan Walker

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/10/14) Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik insisted Wednesday that pitching prospect Taijuan Walker remains an intergral part of the team's plans moving forward, MLB.com reports.

Zduriencik called a report that the team had soured on Walker, in part due to his decision to cut his AFL assignment short, "ridiculous," adding, "We’d have maybe liked Taijuan to pitch a little more, but he really didn’t feel he was where he needed to be to pitch for other reasons. But physically he was throwing 100 mph, he’d given us two really good starts at the end and two really good starts in the Arizona Fall League and he was at the point where he was ready to get into his offseason program.

"There was great logic after our discussions with him at the time. We knew what was going on and he’d pitched great. He had four very successful outings at the end and all that set him up for the coming year. So we’re very pleased with Taijuan Walker. This is a great, young arm, a very talented kid that is going to be a part of this for years to come."

Walker's name has come up in trade rumors this offseason, particularly connected to the team's quest to add a quality right fielder. If he remains with the Mariners organization, he's expected to compete for a rotation spot in the spring.
