Mariners' Donovan Walton: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.

Walton was called up from Triple-A on Thursday and will return there after appearing in one game with Seattle. The 27-year-old has struggled in 69 plate appearances in the big-leagues this season, hitting .206/.254/.365 in 23 contests.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.

Walton has spent the majority of his season at Triple-A and is hitting .297/.362/.440 across 105 plate appearances at the level. However, he's also served as a depth option in Seattle, racking up 69 plate appearances while hitting .206/.254/.365. His previous stints with the big-league club haven't lasted long, and he isn't likely to see regular playing time while in the majors.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Moves back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners optioned Walton to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

Walton's stay with the big club lasted just one day. After being called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Walton appeared off the bench in the Mariners' 7-1 loss to the Angels but didn't receive an at-bat. His demotion opens up a spot on the active roster for starting pitcher Yusei Kikuchi, who was reinstated from the COVID-19-related injured list.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners recalled Walton from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.

The infielder has gone 8-for-24 with Tacoma since being optioned June 30. With the Mariners this season, Walton has hit .206 with seven RBI in 63 at-bats. It's unclear whether he's only being called up for Sunday's game, or if he'll stick with the big-league club after the break.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Dispatched to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners optioned Walton to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.

Walton will cede his spot on the active roster to starting pitcher Marco Gonzales (personal), who was reinstated from the paternity list in a corresponding move. In his latest stint with the big club, Walton appeared in just one game and drew a walk in his lone plate appearance.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Recalled Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.

Walton was optioned June 12 after struggling to a .206/.242/.365 slash line in his previous stint with the big club. He'll rejoin the Mariners ahead of Tuesday's game against Colorado and figures to serve in a reserve utility role going forward. Yohan Ramirez was optioned to Tacoma in a corresponding roster move.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.

Walton spent just shy of a month on the active roster. He hasn't accomplished much at the plate this season, hitting .206/.242/.365 in 20 games. Dylan Moore (calf) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

Walton has moved between second base and left field of late, starting 10 of the Mariners' last 11 games at either position. The 27-year-old posted an .819 OPS over that stretch, but the Mariners may envision him serving as a utility man off the bench rather than a lineup regular. He'll take a seat Wednesday with Shed Long picking up a second straight start at second base and with Jake Fraley getting a turn in left field.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Slams second home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, two RBI, three runs scored and a walk in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Angels.

Walton smacked his second home run of the season off Patrick Sandoval to lead off the third inning. The 27-year-old has played four different positions in the field this season in his 18 games. He hasn't provided much offensive value out of the nine-hole, slashing .232/.259/.411 with two home runs, seven RBI and five runs in 60 plate appearances.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Continues hitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton went 2-for-2 in a loss to the Angels on Friday.

The 27-year-old infielder is on a nice little run at the plate, hitting safely in five of his last six games to boost his average 59 points to .220. Walton figures to continue logging regular playing time as long as Evan White (hip) and Dylan Moore (calf) remain sidelined.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Swats first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Monday's 6-5 extra-inning win over Oakland.

Walton went deep in the fourth inning off Oakland starter James Kaprielian to give Seattle a 3-1 lead. That blast was Walton's first major-league home run. The versatile 27-year-old has added a triple, a double and five RBI while slashing .200/.220/.350 through 41 plate appearances. He's likely to see the strong side of a second-base platoon with Jack Mayfield while Dylan Moore (calf) is out. Walton has also played in left field at times, but the return of Jake Fraley (hamstring) on Monday crowds Seattle's outfield a bit more.

May 27, 2021 05:52 PM
Mariners' Donovan Walton: Riding pine Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton isn't starting Thursday's game against the Rangers.

Walton had been in the lineup for three of the last four games, and he went 2-for-13 with five strikeouts during that time. Jack Mayfield will start at second base and bat ninth.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Getting steady work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton will start in left field and bat seventh Wednesday against the Athletics.

Walton's versatility will allow him to pick up his third start in four games, with each of those assignments coming at different positions. He should have multiple pathways to the lineup while Evan White (hip), Dylan Moore (calf), Shed Long (shin) and Sam Haggerty (shoulder) are all on the shelf, but Walton doesn't offer a fantasy profile that's especially interesting. Over 59 career plate appearances, Walton has hit .185 with no home runs and no stolen bases.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Good use of DH opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton went 2-for-4 with a two-run triple in a win over Cleveland on Saturday.

Starting at designated hitter after being added to the big-league roster Friday, Walton made noise out of the bottom of the order with his first career three-bagger, which plated Jose Marmolejos and J.P. Crawford for the Mariners' final two runs of the day in the eighth inning. Walton's current stint on the major-league roster may only last through Evan White's (hip) stay on the injured list, but perhaps Saturday's production opens up a bit more opportunity for him in coming days.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Added to major-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton was recalled by the Mariners on Friday.

A strained left hip flexor sent Evan White to the IL and opened the door for Walton's second stint with the big-league club this season. His first stint lasted all of one day and this one figures to be brief as well. Walton will provide depth in the middle infield until there is a more pressing need on the roster (likely in the bullpen).

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Returned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton was returned to the Mariners' taxi squad Wednesday.

Walton was called up by Seattle as the 27th man for Tuesday's twin bill against the Orioles, but he failed to appear in either contest. The 26-year-old has appeared in 12 major-league games in the past two seasons and has hit .172 with a double, five RBI and 10 strikeouts.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Called up for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners recalled Walton from their taxi squad to serve as the 27th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with the Orioles.

The 26-year-old will likely be up with the big club for the day before returning to the taxi squad at the conclusion of the twin bill. Walton will provide the Mariners with some depth in the middle infield, but he's not expected to start either contest Tuesday.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Doesn't win roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton was optioned to the team's alternate site Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Walton was in competition to win a role as a depth infielder for the Mariners, though he struggled to a .200/.259/.200 line across 27 spring training plate appearances. He's played sparingly in Seattle across the last two seasons, earning a combined 33 plate appearances. Walton is likely to be with the club at some point this season when the need for depth arises.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Sent to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners optioned Walton to their taxi squad Wednesday.

Walton will cede his spot on the 28-man active roster to J.P. Crawford (personal), who was reinstated from the bereavement list after missing the previous five games. Though he won't be available to play in Wednesday's game against the Giants, he'll remain on standby with the Mariners in San Francisco in case the team loses a player to the injured list. Walton started in three games while Crawford was away from the team, going 2-for-10 at the dish.

Mariners' Donovan Walton: Drives in three during win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walton went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

Walton gave Seattle a 2-1 lead with an RBI groundout in the second and later drove in two more with a double in the sixth. It marked his first hit on the season. It's unclear if Walton will stick with the big club when J.P. Crawford returns from the bereavement list.
