A few Mariners notes — Taijuan Walker to start the opener in AFL

A few quick notes on this Monday afternoon while former Mariner Doug Fister is dealing for the Nats.

*** Corey Hart opted for free agency after being designated for assignment. That’s not entirely surprising since he was going to be a free agent anyway.

*** Taijuan Walker will start the Arizona Fall League opener for the Surprise Saguaros on Tuesday at Surprise Stadium vs. the Peoria Javelinas. Peoria will start Royals’ prospect Kyle Zimmer.

Walker is expected to pitch around five innings. The plan is for him to pitch a total of 25-30 innings in the AFL. The team is managed by Delino DeShields.
