Taijuan Walker traded to Blue Jays from Mariners for unnamed player or cash

The Toronto Blue Jays acquired starting pitcher Taijuan Walker from the Seattle Mariners for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

What It Means:

Walker was drawing trade interest from multiple clubs, so the player to be named would likely carry decent value. The 28-year-old right-hander was supposed to pitch the first half of the Mariners' doubleheader against the San Diego Padres on Thursday before being dealt. Ljay Newsome will now toe the rubber for Seattle on Thursday afternoon.

Walker recorded a 4.00 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 25 strikeouts and 8 walks over 27 innings (five starts) this season for the Mariners. numberFire's models expect him to throw a 4.77 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 29 strikeouts and 7 walks over the rest of the year.
