Taijuan Walker signs one-year deal with Mariners

Taijuan Walker and the Mariners have come to terms on a one-year, $2 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Walker saw only one inning of work in 2019 as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. Walker was previously a Mariner from 2013-2016, where he showed some real promise. He has some sleeper upside, depending on his Spring performance.

Taijuan Walker works out in front of 20 scouts Tuesday

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports Taijuan Walker held a workout in front of 20 scouts on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The 27-year-old former top prospect pitched just one inning in 2019 as he was recovering from Tommy John surgery. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league contract this spring but certainly has some upside.

Taijuan Walker non-tendered by Diamondbacks

Starting pitcher Taijuan Walker was non-tendered by the Diamondbacks on Monday and is now a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

Walker missed nearly the entire 2019 campaign and most of the 2018 season due to Tommy John surgery, but he had a 3.46 ERA across 157 1/3 innings in 2017. He is still just 27 years old and should find plenty of interest on the open market, especially if he is willing to take a one-year "prove it" deal.

Taijuan Walker throws a scoreless inning Sunday

Taijuan Walker started Sunday's regular season finale versus the Padres and threw a scoreless inning.

Fantasy Impact

It was the only inning Walker threw in 2019 as he was recovering from major elbow and shoulder surgeries. The 27-year-old will compete for a spot in the Arizona rotation next spring.

Taijuan Walker has right shoulder discomfort, will undergo MRI

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo says Taijuan Walker will undergo an MRI after experiencing some right shoulder discomfort.

Fantasy Impact

Walker has been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and was expected to return sometime around June. This latest setback could delay that return, however. More should be known following the results of the MRI.
