Taijuan Walker lights-out in minor league start Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mariners pitching prospect Taijuan Walker managed the level of performance Sunday for Triple-A Tacoma that the big league club has been waiting for.

Walker struck out a career-high 13 in a 2-1 victory. He retired 17 straight Fresno batters at one point and threw 71 of 101 pitches for strikes.

"Walker just pitched his rear end off, I mean holy mackerel," Rainiers manager Roy Howell told the Tacoma News-Tribune. "After the first inning he just settled down and went after them."

Mariners making adjustments to rotation plans
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Mariners have made a change to their rotation plans in order to have Felix Hernandez, Chris Young and Hisashi Iwakuma pitch in a series against Toronto next week, according to The News Tribune.

The rotation this week will feature Hernandez and Young in a two-game series against Atlanta, which starts Tuesday. It will then be Roenis Elias, Iwakuma and James Paxton to open a series against the White Sox, which starts Thursday.

Seattle is pushing back Hernandez to Monday and that leaves an open date Sunday. The News Tribune suggests Taijuan Walker and Erasmo Ramirez are the top two candidates to be recalled to make that start. Walker is slated to pitch Monday for Triple-A Tacoma.

Taijuan Walker taken deep three times in Tuesday loss
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mariners premier pitching prospect Taijuan Walker continued to struggle at the Triple-A level Tuesday night by yielding three home runs. Included were two by Tommy Field, who entered with just four in 276 at-bats.

Walker did recover after the second Field blast to strike out five of the next six batters and fire fastballs that peaked at 98 miles an hour.

"He dialed it up a little more," Tacoma manager Roy Howell told the Salt Lake City News Tribune. "That's why he's still learning to pitch. Hopefully he'll take that lesson and understand it."

Walker is 4-2 with a 4.14 ERA this season with the Rainiers.

Taijuan Walker struggles with control Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker struggled with his control Wednesday against the Mets.

Walker allowed two runs on two hits over five innings. He struck out five and walked six. Walker tossed 94 pitches during the outing. The Mets struck early, as Daniel Murphy doubled in a run in the first inning, but were kept quiet after that. Walker was able to pitch around three walks the next four innings. Things fell apart in the sixth, though. After giving up a leadoff single to start things off, Walker loaded the bases by walking the next two hitters. He was removed from the game in favor of Dominic Leone. Leone allowed just one run to score, which was credited to Walker.

With the loss, Walker fell to 1-2 on the year. Should he remain in the team’s rotation, his next start would come against the Indians.
