Walker went 0-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Thursday's 5-1 loss to Milwaukee. Walker has lived up to his name the last two games, drawing five free passes and scoring four runs. He has a respectable 9.8 BB% for the season. The return of utility infielder Wilmer Flores from the injured list presents a juggling act for manager Torey Lovullo, but Walker should retain his role as the primary first baseman, even against right-handers, per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Repubic. The manager envisions Jake Lamb slotting in at third base against righties while Eduardo Escobar slides to second base with Flores taking a seat.
Walker will not start Tuesday against Texas. Walker gets the day off even with the DH spot available in the American League park. Kevin Cron will fill that position, with Jake Lamb starting at first base.
Walker went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 win over St. Louis. Walker's been a streaky hitter during his first significant exposure to major-league pitching, and he's in a good one right now. The left-handed-hitting first baseman has four home runs and 10 RBI over his last 19 at-bats. There's room for both Walker and Jake Lamb in the lineup at this time while Wilmer Flores (foot) is rehabbing, but a decision could be coming soon. Flores has made 10 plate appearances in the Arizona Rookie League. When he returns, Eduardo Escobar will return to third base, leaving Walker and Lamb to share first.
Walker went 3-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in Friday's 8-0 rout of the Rockies. Walker got the scoring started with a two-out, two-run home run off starter Antonio Senzatela in the fourth inning, then crushed a three-run, 431-foot shot off reliever Jesus Tinoco in the fifth. It was the first career multi-homer game for Walker and his third homer in the last two games. His five RBI also marked a career high. The 28-year-old is now batting .263/.332/.505 with 17 homers, 45 runs scored and 43 RBI.
Walker went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 5-4 loss at Dodger Stadium. Walker got the Diamondbacks on the board by crushing a two-run, 403-foot homer off Walker Buehler in the fourth inning. It was the 15th homer of the season for the 28-year-old, who has 43 runs scored and 38 RBI over 83 games while batting .256/.327/.481.
