Taijuan’s Tacoma debut and other news and notes

Taijuan Walker made his AAA debut for the Rainiers last night in Tacoma ~ the youngest Rainier (20) since Felix (19) in 2005. By all accounts, things went well . . .

SIX innings ~ THREE hits ~ ZERO runs ~ TWO walks ~ FOUR strikeouts

  • totals: 87 pitches / 57 strikes
  • by inning: 18, 11, 14, 13, 14, 17
  • speeds: fastball 92-97, cutter 89-92, curve 69-72 mph, change-up: 85-85

 

 

 

oh yeah ~ and the Rainiers won the game! 1-0 (on a home run by Abraham Almonte)

 

 

 

 

 

Now, the bad news . . .

Franklin Gutierrez is back on the DL after coming up w/ a hamstring strain in his second game back from the DL

 

But, Dustin Ackley is back and, presumably, ready to play the outfield
