Mariners' Taijuan Walker: Takes eighth loss against Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (4-8) allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts over 5.2 innings in a loss Tuesday to the Yankees.

Walker was shaky but wasn't helped by his defense, as an error by Kyle Seager extended the second inning by three hitters. He induced 11 swinging strikes in 101 pitches but struggled to keep the ball on the ground (three groundouts versus nine flyouts). Despite his flaws, the Mariners will be hard pressed to find a better option than Walker given their current injuries in the starting rotation.

Mariners' Taijuan Walker: Recalled and starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma and will start against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Walker went just 4-7 with a 4.10 ERA over 17 starts with Seattle before being optioned to Tacoma on Aug. 8. Since being sent down, Walker has pitched three games, posting a 3.60 and 1.33 WHIP over said outings. He's slated to take the mound Tuesday against CC Sabathia and the Yankees. In a corresponding move, Cody Martin was optioned to Tacoma.

Mariners' Taijuan Walker: Could be called up this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker could be called up to start Tuesday, according to MLB.com's Greg Johns.

The Mariners have not announced a starting pitcher for Tuesday's game as of yet, and Walker would be pitching on normal rest that day, so he would seem like a natural fit to fill the spot. Walker has made three starts with Triple-A Tacoma since being demoted in late July, and tossed 6.1 scoreless innings his last time out. Walker was sent to Tacoma partly for an attitude adjustment, but both team and player are better off with him pitching at the top level, and it appears the Mariners are on the verge of giving him another shot.

Mariners' Taijuan Walker: Demoted due to performance, competitiveness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker's demotion Monday to Triple-A Tacoma was in part due to his lack competitiveness, manager Scott Servias said, in addition to poor performance, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Apparently, Walker's nagging foot injury, which sent him to the DL for a month, wasn't the problem it was thought to be. Servais said the team is in a position where it can't afford to keep starting a pitcher who has three quality starts in his last 13 outings. But Servais also questioned Walker's competitiveness. "When you're one of five starting pitchers, there's a certain level of expectation," Servais said. "You've got to go deeper in games. You've got to be competitive. ... There are plenty of things for him to work out, but the biggest thing is he needs to continue to compete. When you don't have it on a particular night or you give up some runs early in the game, how do you stay in the game?"

Mariners' Taijuan Walker: Optioned to Triple-A Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday, Shannon Drayer of MYNorthwest.com reports.

Walker struggled in his first outing after returning from a foot injury as he allowed six earned runs over just four innings. He had a poor showing in his rehab start at Tacoma as well when he gave up two runs over just 4.1 innings. With Walker being optioned, Seattle will bring Arquimedes Caminero up to The Show.
