Larry Stone talks with Taijaun Walker

Here’s what Pankovits said about Walker’s struggles:
“I see a lot of positives, believe it or not. He has had a little bit of an up and down season. I’ve really liked how lately he’s handled the adversity. He’s shown his competitive side. That’s something I hadn’t seen up until that point, and I think it’s great. I think on the flip side of that, you have someone who has a lot of success in the minor leagues, then they get to the big leagues and they struggle. I would rather have a prospect like that have to go through those ups and down and adversity in the minor leagues before they reach the big leagues. I think he’ll benefit from it, and he’s done everything we could ask.
