Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Swats 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a pair of walks in Friday's 10-7 victory over the Brewers.

Walker launched a two-run homer on a line drive to center field off Jhoulys Chacin in the third inning to give the Diamondbacks a 5-3 lead. The 28-year-old has homered in five of 10 games this month as he continues to heat up in the second half. Overall this season, Walker has 19 home runs, 52 runs scored and 48 RBI while batting .259/.341/.503.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Scores lone run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 walk rate for the season. The return of utility infielder Wilmer Flores from the injured list presents a playing-time dilemma 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.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Homers twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Goes yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Walker will retreat to the bench for Wednesday's series finale, while Jake Lamb, who is back from a quadriceps injury, will start in his place. It remains to be seen how playing time will shake out with Lamb healthy, but Walker's .833 OPS should still help afford him plenty of opportunities.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Hits 14th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, a pair of runs and a walk in the Diamondbacks' 8-5 win over the Dodgers on Monday.

Walker had cooled down after a torrid start to the season, but he's been heating back up lately, as he's now hit safely in nine straight, recording four multi-hit efforts over that span. He provided a big early blow in this contest, cranking a three-run first-inning long ball off Clayton Kershaw. The hot streak has boosted Walker's slash line up to .269/.342/.502 to go along with 14 homers and 34 RBI through 271 at-bats.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Smashes solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and walk entering as a pinch hitter in the sixth during a 6-4 loss to the Rockies on Thursday.

After hitting his homer, Walker stayed in the game to play first base. He received two more plate appearances, recording a strikeout and walk. Walker is riding a modest five-game hitting streak. He is batting .258 with 13 home runs, 29 RBI, 38 runs and four steals in 256 at-bats this season.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Riding pine Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

Walker will head to the bench after four straight starts, during which he recorded six hits in 16 at-bats. Though Kevin Cron will man first base in the series finale, Walker appears to have re-established himself as the clear top option at the position while trimming his strikeout rate to a manageable 20.6 percent thus far in June, well down from his season-long rate (28 percent).

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Has two hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Rockies.

Walker's hit in four straight games (6-for-16) and maintains the role as the primary first baseman, but his at-bats could dwindle soon. Jake Lamb (quadriceps) is nearing a return from a rehab assignment, per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, which could lead to Walker being on the short side of a platoon at first base.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Bombs 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in a 10-3 victory over Washington on Saturday.

Walker connected for a solo homer leading off the second inning to tie the game 3-3. He's been slumping in May and June, going 30-for-141 to lower his average by 55 points. Walker now sports a .252/.330/.479 slash line and has driven in 27 runs in 242 at-bats.

June 15, 2019 02:36 PM
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is not starting Friday against the Nationals.

Walker will sit for the second time in the last four games, and he has just a single hit in his last five contests. Kevin Cron will get the nod at first base.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Gets rare day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Walker will head to the bench for the first time in June after hitting .212 with a home run and three RBI over nine contests. Kevin Cron draws the start at first base and is batting fifth in Walker's stead.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Continues surge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Walker launched his 11th home run for Arizona's lone tally. He continues to emerge from a slump, bashing his third homer in the last five games. He's batting .400/.429/.900 during that stretch.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Has two hits, RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Mets.

Walker's bat has come alive with three multi-hit efforts in his last four starts. He's 7-for-17 with two home runs, five RBI and five runs scored during that stretch. Just as it looked like his hold on the first base job was flagging -- he hit .127 over 20 games -- Walker's responded. With Jake Lamb (quadriceps) nearing a rehab assignment, the Diamondbacks will have options if Walker's slump returns.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Mashes 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 3-for-3 with a walk, a two-run homer and a second run scored in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Mets.

Kevin Cron has already been sent back to Triple-A Reno, but the brief competition seems to have lit a fire under Walker. The 28-year-old has gone yard in back-to-back games and has collected six hits over his last three contests, emphatically snapping a 3-for-44 slump. On the season, Walker is slashing .259/.333/.497 with 10 homers and 22 RBI.

Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Hits ninth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs in the Diamondbacks' 11-10 defeat to the Rockies on Thursday.

Walker had been in a 3-for-37 slump coming into the game, but he broke out with a multi-hit day in this contest that included his ninth homer of the season. He got off to a red-hot start to the season, but thanks to the recent skid, his batting average is down to .247 through 194 at-bats, so hopefully this was a sign he's ready to get back on track.

May 29, 2019 05:20 PM
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

Walker is just 3-for-37 (.081) with a 31.7 percent strikeout rate over his last 10 appearances, so he'll give way to Kevin Cron at first base as he looks to hit the reset button. If Walker doesn't show signs of turning things around in the near future, he could continue to cede opportunities to the 26-year-old Cron.

May 29, 2019 06:32 AM
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Slide continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker went hitless in four at-bats in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Rockies.

Walker made a third straight start Tuesday after he'd been given a one-game break Saturday, but the breather did nothing to revive his slumbering bat. He hasn't produced a base hit over his last 21 at-bats and is down to .239. Manager Torey Lovullo may give Kevin Cron a bigger share of the playing time if Walker continues to slide.
