  • Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Inks one-year deal

    Walker signed a one-year, $6.5 million contract with Arizona on Friday to avoid arbitration, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Walker finished 2022 with career highs in home runs (36) and RBI (94), and he recorded his highest OPS since 2019. As a result, the veteran first baseman receives a well-deserved raise from the $2.6 million he made in 2022.

The first baseman finished the season on a positive note, turning in a .367 average over 30 at-bats across his final seven games.

  • Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Nabs rare steal

    Walker went 2-for-5 with a stolen base in Sunday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Giants.

    Walker was on the back end of a double-steal in the 10th inning, which earned him his second stolen base of the campaign. The first baseman isn't renowned for his speed, as he's produced just 12 stolen bases and five triples in his major-league career. He's been much better as a power bat this year, posting an .802 OPS, .240 batting average, 36 home runs, 93 RBI and 83 runs scored through 157 contests.

  • Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Knocks in three in win

    Walker went 1-for-4 with three RBI in Wednesday's 5-2 extra-inning win over the Astros.

    Walker delivered a run in the first inning on a sacrifice fly and followed with a two-out, two-run single in the 10th. The 31-year-old first baseman has a team-high and career-high 91 RBI through 154 games. Walker, who also leads the team with 36 home runs, resuscitated his career in 2022 after a couple of down seasons. He's still under team control for the next two years and is almost certain to return as the primary first baseman in 2023.

  • Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Slams 36th homer

    Walker went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    The game unfolded as a pitching duel between Julio Urias and Zac Gallen, but Walker looked to have stolen some of the spotlight with his go-ahead solo homer off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning. However, Los Angeles came back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame to pull out the victory. Walker's homer was his fourth over his past eight games and pushed him to 36 long balls on the season, tied for sixth-most in the league.

The first baseman has maintained a .235/.328/.480 slash line with 83 RBI, 76 runs scored, a stolen base and 21 doubles through 142 contests, with the impressive power helping to offset some of his overall batting struggles.

He's been more fortunate since the All-Star break, posting a .306 average while the BABIP has climbed to .231.
