1B,DH - ARI - IL10
The Diamondbacks placed 1B Christian Walker on the 10-day IL with right oblique soreness.
This is the same injury that Walker suffered earlier in the season. He exited Tuesday's game with the injury and should be expected to miss at least a couple of weeks.
D'Backs 1B Christian Walker was removed from Tuesday's game against the Marlins after tweaking his side.
Arizona is calling the removal precautionary, but Walker suffered an oblique injury back in April on on the same side. Consider him day-to-day until we hear more.
First baseman Christian Walker went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in the Diamondbacks' 5-2 win over the Marlins on Monday.
Walker smacked an RBI double off of Ross Detwiler in the bottom of the fifth inning for his only hit of the day. He's collected five hits in his last six games but only has one multi-hit performance all season. There's room for improvement in his .197/.265/.279 batting line (61 at-bats).
First baseman Christian Walker went 1-for-4 with a single as the Diamondbacks were shut out by the Marlins 8-0.
Walker has picked up a pair of hits in two games since he's been activated from the injured list. His season batting line leaves a lot to be desired at .188/.245/.271with one home run and three RBI over 48 at-bats, though. Oblique issues can be difficult to overcome so it's encouraging that he's made it through the last two games without a setback.
After taking live BP reps last week, Christian Walker is expected to make his return to the lineup on Tuesday against the Miami Marlins.
It's been a rough start for the Arizona first baseman, but Walker hopes to help a team that has won six of their last eight games. Walker should slot back in near the top of this lineup in hopes he can turn it around and regain that 2020 form.
