Diamondbacks' Blake Walston: Getting crushed in Double-A
Walston has a 7.12 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 35:17 K:BB through 36.2 innings (eight starts) for Double-A Amarillo.
After Walston dominated in High-A to open the year, there was reason to expect more than this following his promotion in early May. The southpaw has given up 53 hits, including seven home runs, across those 36.2 frames since his promotion. That said, he's still a few days shy of his 21st birthday, and Walston struggled some after being promoted to High-A last year before coming back stronger in 2022, so he may just need some adjustment time....

The southpaw posted a 3.32 ERA while striking out 60 across 43.1 Low-A innings and will now look to carry that success with him to the High-A level.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Blake Walston: Gets taxi squad nod
Walston will be on Arizona's taxi squad, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Walston is one of the best pitching prospects in the Diamondbacks' system, but he doesn't turn 19 until later this month and has not yet pitched above short-season ball. He had a 2.45 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 17:2 K:BB in 11 innings last year after Arizona selected him with the No. 26 overall pick in the draft.... See More ... See Less
