Walker went 0-for-4 with two RBI in Thursday's 10-3 loss to San Francisco. Walker benefitted from hitting behind Eduardo Escobar, who had two extra-base hits and put men in scoring position for him. He was able get runners home with productive outs. Walker's driven in seven runs over the last nine games but a .571 OPS this season is a major disappointment.
Walker is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants. He receives a day off following a strong, 2-for-5 effort Tuesday with three RBI. It was Walker's third multi-hit showing in his last seven games, a stretch during which he's gone 7-for-25 with a homer, five RBI and just two strikeouts. Pavin Smith gets the start at first base Wednesday.
Walker went 2-for-5 with a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-8 loss to the Giants. Walker, who has been held out of the lineup against right-handers at times, has started seven of the last eight contests, including four of five against righties. The first baseman is 8-for-28 with three extra-base hits, five RBI and seven runs scored as a starter during that stretch. The average is still a meager .212, but he's making better contact.
Walker went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run in a 5-2 loss to Oakland on Tuesday. Walker and teammate Pavin Smith were the only Diamondbacks clicking Tuesday as the pair combined for four of the team's six times on base with Walker doing the heavy lifting. His second-inning home run off Chris Bassitt opened the scoring and he later scored after a seventh-inning single to account for both Arizona runs in the game. The hits broke a 3-for-20 stretch for Walker, who should end up performing closer to his combined .815 OPS from 2019 and 2020 rather than a current .570 mark.
Walker returned to the starting lineup Sunday and went 1-for-4 in a 2-0 loss to the Brewers. Walker, who sat out Saturday's game against a right-hander, returned to the lineup against a righty Sunday. He's ridden the bench for three of the last five right-handers the Diamondbacks faced. That could be an issue if the practice continues, which could easily be the case, as Walker has a .450 OPS against righties and .520 overall.
