Walker went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple and a run scored Thursday against San Francisco.

Walker tripled in the second inning and scored the game's first run, and then he smacked a ground-rule double in the fourth. The 27-year-old continues to have a solid spring and sports a .355 average with a home run, 11 RBI and five runs scored. Walker's chances of breaking camp with the Diamondbacks took a slight hit with the addition of Adam Jones this week. Prior to signing Jones, there was room for Walker and outfielder Socrates Brito, both of whom are out of options, plus carrying three catchers. However, the arrival of Jones has forced management to re-evaluate the need to carry three catchers, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. If the Diamondbacks retain two catchers, they can keep both Walker and Brito.
