Taijuan Walker leaves D-Backs' game on Saturday with forearm tightness

Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Taijuan Walker left his start Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers after two innings due to right forearm tightness. The fact that Walker was able to complete the second inning after a trainer examined him at least gives a glimmer of hope that the injury isn't serious, but more information on his status should come in the next day or so. He did not return for the start of the third, however.

He dismissed the reports circulating on social media that the AIMIM had withdrawn all its candidates from Karnataka. He added that the party will support and campaign for the candidates of the Janata Dal-Secular (JDS) party instead.

He's not scheduled to undergo an MRI or any other testing, according to Zach Buchanan of The Athletic. "I didn't want to do anything dumb and make it worse". The 25-year-old righty has seen mixed results through his first three appearances of 2018, with five runs, a home run, a walk and nine strikeouts through 5 2/3 innings. He entered the night with a 3.27 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 11 innings.
