Taijuan WalkerIt’s a tiring process to keep up with all the major league baseball players who need Tommy John surgery. Just a couple of days ago we mentioned another promising, young hurler Dinelson Lamet is scheduled to undergo TJ surgery and now we have yet another promising young pitcher set to undergo the procedure.

Diamondbacks pitcher Taijuan Walker has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament and will need to undergo Tommy John surgery according to manager Torey Lovullo, Nick Piecoro of azcentral reports.

Walker, 25, gave up five runs on 15 hits and five walks with nine strikeouts over 13 innings to start the season. His 2018 season is done and he will likely miss most of the first half of the 2019 season as well.
