Taijuan Walker’s Knee Soreness Resurfaces in Final Spring Start

Taijuan Walker

The shortened spring training has taken at least one victim on the Mets rotation.

Taijuan Walker’s knee pain has resurfaced in the past week, leading up to his disappointing Tuesday start in the Mets’ 14-0 loss to the Nationals. He underwent knee surgery in January, and had been progressing nicely up until the final week of Mets camp.

And just like that we went from having ‘the best’ starting rotation in the league to possibly needing a bullpen game to start the season. SMH.
