Diamondbacks’ Taijuan Walker has UCL injury

1 Comment

The Athletic’s Zach Buchanan reports that Diamondbacks starter Taijuan Walker has a “UCL injury,” according to manager Torey Lovullo. Walker is seeking a second opinion. Lovullo said, “This information came as a surprise to me. I thought he would be OK.”

Walker left Saturday’s start against the Dodgers after two innings with right forearm tightness. This latest news suggests me may be headed for Tommy John surgery. That’s quite an unfortunate series of events for the 25-year-old Walker and for the Diamondbacks.

Last season, Walker had his best full season, finishing with a 3.49 ERA and a 146/61 K/BB ratio in 157 1/3 innings. This season, he had limited the opposition to five runs on 15 hits and five walks with nine strikeouts in 13 innings.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
