2022 Player Outlook
2021 was the classic tale of two halves for Walker as he went 7-3 with a 2.66 ERA over his first 16 starts of the season only to completely fall apart in the second half of the year, going 0-8 with a 7.13 ERA. During that first half run Walker had 95 strikeouts over 94.2 innings and looked like the pitcher many had hoped he would have become in Seattle as a former top rated prospect but injuries had really derailed his career and coming into last season he had made just 15 total starts since 2017. Walker is healthy coming into this year and does have a rotation spot. Walker is largely going undrafted right now with an ADP of .294.7.
