    • Walker swatted a pinch-hit solo home run in Friday's 13-11 win over the Marlins. The home run was Walker's first in the majors since 2014, when he received a cup of coffee with the Orioles. Prior to being promoted to the big club earlier this moth, Walker displayed major power with 32 home runs and 75 extra-base hits for Triple-A Reno, but his contact issues have thus far from prevented him from gaining much traction at the big-league level. It's unlikely that Walker will pick up consistent at-bats over the final week and change of the regular season with the Diamondbacks aiming to solidify playoff positioning.

    • Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Headed to majors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Walker's contract was selected from Triple-A Reno on Sunday. Walker dazzled with Reno this season, as he hit .309/.382/.597 with 32 home runs and 114 RBI. However, it remains to be seen if his power will translate to the majors due to the Pacific Coast League being rather hitter-friendly. In a corresponding move, the Diamondbacks placed Randall Delgado on the 60-day disabled list.

    • Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Raking at Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Walker, 26, is hitting .307 and maintains a .964 OPS across 403 plate appearances with Triple-A Reno this season. Walker has been one of the top performers in all of the minors this season, with his 89 RBI and 22 home runs ranking first and third, respectively, across all leagues. However, with the Pacific Coast League skewing very hitter friendly and Walker in the midst of his fourth straight season at Triple-A, his overwhelming statistics do little to change his standing as a non-prospect. The Diamondbacks seemingly validated that thinking this past spring, when they removed Walker from the 40-man roster and outrighted him to Reno after he went unclaimed off waivers.

    • Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Leads minors in RBI
      By RotoWire Staff

      Walker, 26, is slashing .306/.381/.631 with 25 extra-base hits across 181 plate appearances with Triple-A Reno this season. Walker is doing a tour of Triple-A for the fourth consecutive season and is making a compelling case for a spot on the Pacific Coast League All-Star team. His 46 RBI on the season are the most in the minors, while his 12 homers are tied for the top mark across all levels. That sort of production would normally put Walker on the radar for a promotion to the big leagues, but the Diamondbacks' decision to drop him from the 40-man roster coming out of spring training may make his road to the majors more difficult.

    • Walker was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Thursday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. Two days after claiming Walker, the Diamondbacks have passed him through waivers and outrighted him off the 40-man roster. He'll spend the year as organizational depth in 2017.
