Taijuan Walker Stumbles, Phillies Still Triumph

by Jesse Garcia | Phillies Correspondent | Wed, May 22nd 10:34pm EDT

Taijuan Walker struggled through 4.2 innings, allowing three earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five in the Phillies' 11-4 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact:

This outing inflates Walker's already concerning ERA to 5.06 and WHIP to 1.54 for the season, continuing a trend of inefficient performances. His strikeout rate remains low at 7.1 K/9, and a FIP of 5.85 suggests his struggles are not solely due to bad luck. Fantasy managers should be wary of relying on Walker in their rotations, as his inability to control games and limit damage makes him a risky play in all but the deepest of leagues.
