The Seattle Mariners finally promoted top pitching prospect Tajuan Walker to make his first start of the season Monday night. After dealing with shoulder trouble for all of spring training and most of the first half of the season, Walker finally was cleared to return to the mound recently and was deemed ready to join the major league squad.
Analysis: Finally. Walker is coming off a dominant four-hit shutout and reminds me and many others of another Felix Hernandez. The strikeout stuff is going to be terrific and only health will hold Walker back from stardom. Get him in there.
