Mariners' Taijuan Walker allows five runs in loss vs. Dodgers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker surrendered five earned runs on six hits and four walks in four innings while striking out three to take the loss in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Dodgers Wednesday.

Walker (0-2) looked fantastic this spring, but the results haven't carried over to his first two starts of the year. He gave up three runs in the first inning before the Dodgers tacked on another in the second and one more in the third. Walker owns a 17.18 ERA and 6:6 K:BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings heading into Tuesday's scheduled start against the Astros.

Mariners' Taijuan Walker knocked out early in start against A's
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Taijuan Walker (0-1) started for the Mariners on Friday and was smacked around for nine earned runs on nine hits in 3.1 innings, suffering the loss against the Athletics.

"It's definitely not the results I wanted for the first start," Walker said, per MLB.com. "But I'll just put this one behind me and move on."

Walker gave up a second-inning home run to A's left fielder Mark Canha.

"Actually I thought he made great pitches. It was just their night," McClendon said. "I thought he threw some good changeups, some good breaking balls. Early on everything was falling in for them. And you have to give them credit. They came out attacking and did a nice job."

Mariners' Zunino feels changeup will be asset for Taijuan Walker
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

As Mariners starting pitcher Taijuan Walker takes the mound for his season debut Friday against the Athletics, the expectations have been raised after the highly touted prospect had a very productive spring campaign.

The right-hander went 4-0 with a 0.67 ERA in seven spring starts, securing a spot in the team's rotation.

“I think that’s a test they were looking for -- how do I react when I get runners on?” Walker said, per The News Tribune. “Do I overthrow, do I panic? So I think that was a big test for me. Also, when I gave up a home run against Anaheim, how would I react giving up a run? And I think those are also all big tests, and I feel like I handled myself pretty well.”

While Walker still has a fastball that reaches the upper-90s, his cutter has transformed into a slider and his changeup has also improved, according to catcher Mike Zunino.

"I think that’s going to be a huge pitch for him,” Zunino said of the changeup. “He throws one that’s a little bit harder, but it’s got great life to it. I think he’s going to be able to use that quite a bit vs. righties and lefties.

"I think he came into spring ready to pitch. Obviously, when you throw that hard, you get into the category of (just) throwing sometimes. But he definitely came in ready to pitch and wanting to learn how to get guys out."

Although the Mariners's final roster for Opening Day has not been made official, pitchers Taijuan Walker and Tyler Olson are among the 25 healthy players remaining in camp and are on the verge of breaking camp with the club, according to MyNorthwest.com.
