Still room for Walker to improve

Still room for Walker to improve
prospectinsider.com — If you've watched Taijuan Walker this season, particularly his most recent two outings -- in Cleveland last week and earlier this week versus Houston -- you've seen what the former No. 43 overall pick can do. On the year, the 23-year-old owns a strikeout-to-walk ratio of nearly 9-1, his FIP sits at 2.11 and he's inducing ground balls at a 55 percent rate.

Seattle Mariners ownership change?

Seattle Mariners ownership change?
prospectinsider.com — If you have followed Prospect Insider for the past few years you have read pieces here at the site as well as a number of tweets - not to mention segments on local radio - where I discuss the potential change of ownership for the Seattle Mariners.

UW’s Chris Baker the perfect example

prospectinsider.com — There are a lot of good players on the 2016 Washington Huskies baseball team. They're in first place in the Pac-12 after a 3-1 series win over a very strong St. Mary's team, and with more than a half-season sample available, the roster has to have a lot of talent or the losses would have caught up to them by now.

The New-Old Mike Zunino?

The New-Old Mike Zunino?
prospectinsider.com — Mike Zunino was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma last summer after struggling somewhat historically in the big leagues for four months. He hit the ball well in the Pacific Coast League for a month, showed positive results in spring training last month and now is off to a roaring start with the Rainiers in 2016 -- .415/.439/.868, 3-2B, 7 HR, 3 BB, 9 SO in 13 games.

Washington Huskies threaten Pac-12

Washington Huskies threaten Pac-12
prospectinsider.com — Chris Baker celebrates with teammates after his grand slam Sunday versus the UCLA Bruins at Husky Ballpark. (Stephen Brashear)No, the Dawgs at Montlake did not walk up to Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott and caution the entire conference. But the university's baseball team is a legitimate threat in the conference after winning two of three over UCLA this past weekend.

Potential early-season anomalies

prospectinsider.com — Through game two in The Bronx the Seattle Mariners appear to have rebounded somewhat from the five-game skid at Safeco Field. The final game of the homestand ended in a walk-off home run by Dae-Ho Lee, then the club beat the New York Yankees 7-1 Friday before beating a lefty starter 3-2 in Game 2.
