    Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker may not start again in 2015

    Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker could be done for the season with Vidal Nino set to start Friday for the Mariners, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. While there hasn't been any formal news regarding Walker's status, he's struggled this season - posting a 4.56 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 169 2/3 innings. There was a bit of optimism recently surrounding Walker however, as the 23-year-old posted arguably his best line of the season against the Angels Sept. 14, giving up just one run on four hits while striking out seven batters through seven innings, but the Mariners clearly want to give some of their other young arms a chance to start. Fantasy owners should stay tuned for more information coming in the following days.

    Mariners SP Taijuan Walker picks up victory

    Taijuan Walker wasn't particularly sharp Sunday, but did enough to pick up his ninth win of the season as the Mariners outlasted the White Sox. Walker went 5 2/3 innings, allowing five earned runs on seven hits. He struck out four, but got the hook after just 87 pitches given his struggles and Seattle's desire to hold on to its lead. The win is Walker's first since a complete-game one hitter on July 31. Since then, Walker (9-7) has been up and down, with three straight no-decisions until Sunday's win.
