Taijuan Walker was shut down last week after he was diagnosed with inflammation in the bursa of his right shoulder, but Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that he’s scheduled to resume throwing Thursday.

Walker has been limited for most of the spring, so even if all goes well Thursday, it’s expected that he’ll need three weeks to get ready for game action. While the start of the season is out the window at this point, the 21-year-old could join the Mariners’ rotation in mid-April if he can avoid setbacks.

With Walker and Hisashi Iwakuma both sidelined, the Mariners could very well begin the season with a rotation of Felix Hernandez, Scott Baker, Erasmo Ramirez, James Paxton, and Brandon Maurer.

    Taijuan should move to Taiwan and do Tae-bo so he can tie Juan to a typewriter.

      You should meet up with some friends in the meatpacking district this December and sing christmas carols to all of the meatheads.
