Taijuan Walker has been much of what the Diamonbacks expected when they traded for him this offseason. He’s holding a 3.46 ERA while striking out 8 hitters per 9 innings.
His walk rate is about league average for qualified starting pitchers and his HR/9 rate would be at a top 5 rate if he had the required innings pitched.
And that’s been the one problem for Walker at this point, actually pitching. He’s missed the past month with a blister injury, but even before that he was having trouble going deep into games.
Of his 9 starts, he’s averaging less than 6 innings per outing and has pitched more than six innings more than once.
In his first start back, expect another short and possibly rough outing.
Zimmerman on the other hand has been the furthest thing from what the Tigers expected when they signed him before the 2016 season. Last year he posted a 4.87 ERA in just over 100 innings and this year he’s off to an even worse start.
Zimmerman in 12 starts this season is currently holding a 5.72 ERA and is averaging only 5 2/3 innings per outing.
His bugaboo has been nearly equal parts everything, at least when compared to his best years with the Washington Nationals. His K/9 rate is down, BB/9 rate is up, GB% down, etc., etc.
But perhaps most glaring is the inability to prevent the long ball; Zimmerman is averaging more than 2 homeruns per nine innings thus far this season, more than double his career rate.
