Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Loses arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) lost his arbitration hearing and will receive $2.25 million for the 2017 season, FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

Walker had been asking for a bit more than that, but considering his inconsistencies since reaching the majors, the arbiter sided with the Diamondbacks. He is currently focused on recovering from October ankle surgery in order to be ready for the start of the season.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Focused on preparing for start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Terry Lovullo said that the Diamondbacks' goal is to get Walker (ankle) ready for the start of the regular season, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

The young fireballer underwent ankle surgery back in October prior to being traded to Arizona, but it seems like Walker will be close to ready by the time Opening Day rolls around. A firmer timetable should become available as spring training progresses, but things seem to be looking up for the young hurler.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Plans to develop two-seam fastball
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Walker (ankle) may add a two-seam fastball to his pitch arsenal this coming season, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

The idea is that the two-seam fastball will help him keep the ball on the ground more, especially at Chase Field. Also of note, Walker revealed that 10 bone spurs were removed from his foot during his October surgery. As a consequence of pitching through said issue, his ability to push off the mound was significantly hindered and resulted in his four-seam fastball's average velocity dipping below 94 mph for the first time in his career. However, now that the ailment has been corrected, Arizona will hope that the flashes of promise its newest acquisition displayed in 2013 and 2014 will return this coming season.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Dealt to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Walker (ankle) was traded to the Diamondbacks as part of a five-player trade Wednesday night.

Walker has shown some promise in the past, but has struggled to put it all together in the last couple seasons. The 24-year-old hurler posted a 4.22 ERA and 4.99 FIP over 134.1 innings last season and struggled to keep the ball in the yard (1.81 HR/9). The move from Seattle to Arizona will only exacerbate those concerns, so the youngster will likely need to up his groundball rate to enjoy success. He's under team control for at least another four seasons, providing some time for him to develop with the Diamondbacks.

Mariners' Taijuan Walker: Undergoes ankle surgery Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Walker underwent arthroscopic surgery Monday to remove a bone fragment on his right ankle.

There was speculation that Walker might undergo a procedure, but it was unclear what would be done if that was the case. Now that the issue has been addressed, the right-hander will begin his rehab immediately and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
