Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon declared Friday that the team's top prospect starting pitcher Taijuan Walker is expected to be part of the Mariners' Opening Day roster.

The 21-year old Walker made three starts at the end of last season and was fairly impressive minus a poor second outing versus the Royals. Walker struck out 12 batters in 15 innings, including eight in his final outing of the season (five innings pitched) and posted a 3.60 ERA (2.25 FIP) while waking only four batters. Walker has the potential to be this season's Matt Harvey and should be on your radar in all formats with this news.
