Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Moving forward in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (hand) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports reports.

Walker long-tossed at Miller Park on Thursday, and although he's feeling good following that session, it appears that he'll miss one more turn in the rotation. If all goes well, the right-hander will throw a simulated game in Pittsburgh early next week prior to rejoining the rotation next weekend against the Marlins. More on his status should become apparent once he progresses to the next step in his recovery process.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Heads to disabled list with blister issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (blister) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

The Diamondbacks made the move retroactive to May 20, so there's still a chance Walker will be able to return later in the month if the blister issue subsides quickly. The timing of Walker's injury is unfortunate as he had strung together back-to-back quality starts. T.J McFarland (ankle) was activated off the disabled list Sunday and will take Walker's spot on the 25-man roster.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Shuts down Padres over six innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker spun six scoreless innings in Friday's 10-1 win over the Padres, scattering two hits and three walks while striking out three batters.

With his pitch count sitting at 90 after six frames, Walker probably had another inning left in him, but with the Diamondbacks owning a commanding 10-0 lead, there was little reason for manager Torey Lovullo to keep the right-hander out there. Walker has been charged with three or fewer earned runs in his last five outings to lower his season ERA to 3.46, but he's hasn't been able to rack up the strikeouts since his 11-K masterpiece against the Padres back on April 27. In fact, he has nearly as many walks (11) as strikeouts (13) over his last four outings.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Allows three runs in Saturday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (3-3) took the loss Saturday against the Pirates, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and three walks. He struck out three batters.

Since covering eight innings and striking out a season-high 11 batters in his April 27 start against the Padres, Walker has fallen back to earth with underwhelming showings in his last three outings. He's covered 16.1 innings over that stretch and has submitted a 3.86 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 10:8 K:BB ratio. Walker can be forgiven to some degree because two of those matchups came against stellar offenses in the Nationals and Rockies -- with the latter coming at Coors Field -- but fantasy owners probably expected better from him Saturday in a home start against the last-place Pirates.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Avoids major damage in Coors Field start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (3-2) took a loss Sunday against the Rockies, allowing three runs (one earned) over 5.2 innings while conceding seven hits and no walks. He struck out one batter.

Aside from surrendering a solo homer to Mark Reynolds in the second inning, Walker mostly excelled at averting disaster at Coors Field. Only two of the seven hits he gave up went for extra bases, and he tied a season high in generating 11 ground balls. The right-hander's traded his usually strong strikeout totals for more weak contact, but fantasy owners will probably be satisfied enough that he was able to lower his season ERA in what was a scary matchup.
