Tyler Walker eyeing return
Reliever Tyler Walker, on the disabled list with soreness in his right shoulder, will likely play catch tomorrow for the first time since receiving a cortisone shot Tuesday. Walker is eligible to come off the disabled list Wednesday, and he hopes he can return by then.
When Walker went on the disabled list Monday night, he said he did so "begrudgingly." He was able to pitch through the pain, but had not appeared in a game since June 19. Since receiving treatment and sitting out, Walker learned his situation was worse than expected.
"I kind of didn't realize how banged up it was," Walker said. "You kind of get in that mode where you're good enough to pitch, you're OK. Hopefully we can get it right. I don't want to go back out and have it not be OK. That's putting these guys in a bad spot. I want to make sure I'm ready to go."
