Stefen Romero Optioned To Tacoma, Taijuan Walker Called Up


After Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Indians, the Seattle Mariners optioned OF Stefen Romero to Triple-A Tacoma and called up SP Taijuan Walker to make his first start of the season Monday in Houston.

The Mariners will travel with 13 pitchers and 12 position players. The tremendous pitching of Brandon Maurer since being called back up and placed in the bullpen probably led to the decision to send a position player down for Walker.

Romero has struggled with the big club, batting .200 with 3 HR and 11 RBI in 156 plate appearances (145 at-bats).
