The Blue Jays have acquired Taijuan Walker from the Seattle Mariners for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The fact itís a player to be named later means the player may not be in the 60-man player pool.

Walker is a right-handed starting pitcher who will become a free agent at yearís end. Presumably, he will slot into the rotation right behind Ryu. So far this year, Walker is 2-2 with a 4.00 ERA in 27 innings.
