Mariners Trade Walker to Blue Jays for Player or Cash
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have traded right-hander Taijuan Walker to the Toronto Blue Jays for a player or cash. The trade was announced about three hours before Walker had been scheduled to start the first game of a doubleheader against the San Diego Padres. The first game was a makeup of Wednesday night’s game, which was postponed after Mariners players voted not to play to protest the shooting of a Black man by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Walker was 2-2 with a 4.00 ERA in five starts this season, with 25 strikeouts and eight walks.
