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.
