Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Surgery set for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker will undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Walker was diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow after exiting his start over the weekend with forearm tightness. He'll miss the reminder of the 2018 season and will begin the 2019 season on the disabled list as he works his way back.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Will require Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Wednesday that Walker (elbow) was diagnosed with a torn UCL and will likely undergo Tommy John surgery.

Walker exited his previous start April 14 with forearm tightness and was subsequently placed on the 10-day disabled list. He was later diagnosed with a UCL injury, and a second opinion ultimately confirmed the right-hander is dealing with a tear that would require surgical intervention. This is a brutal blow for both Walker and the Diamondbacks, as the 25-year-old owned a solid 3.45 ERA through three starts for the first-place club prior to suffering the season-ending injury. Assuming he undergoes surgery, Walker will likely be sidelined through next summer. For now, Matt Koch is slated to start in Walker's place Friday, but Shelby Miller (elbow), who is recovering from a Tommy John procedure of his own, could end up settling in as the long-term rotation replacement by late June or early July.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Diagnosed with UCL injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

An examination of Walker's forearm Tuesday revealed that he's dealing with a UCL injury, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

While it's known that Walker suffered a UCL injury, the Diamondbacks are unsure if it's a tear. Per Gilbert, Walker is scheduled to receive a second opinion on the injury in New York in the coming days, after which it should be revealed how the righty will proceed and whether or not he'll require surgery.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Sent to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with right forearm inflammation.

Walker's injury cropped up during his Saturday start against the Dodgers. He initially wasn't going to undergo an MRI on his forearm, but manager Torey Lovullo now says that he'll undergo that testing Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. A timeline for his return should come into focus following his MRI. He'll be eligible to return April 25 at the earliest.

Diamondbacks' Taijuan Walker: Not scheduled for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is not currently scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured right forearm, Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports reports.

Walker exited his start Saturday with right forearm tightness but said he "felt strong" and "everything checked out good" after the game. Because no MRI has been scheduled, the team probably does not deem the injury as serious, though manager Torey Lovullo stated things could change. It's unclear if Walker will make his scheduled start Friday against the Padres.
