Mariners-Blue Jays Preview

(AP) -- Although the Seattle Mariners have leaned on solid starting pitching in this series with the Toronto Blue Jays, they may have to find another route to success in the finale.

Looking to finish the three-game sweep Sunday, the Mariners will turn to the erratic Taijuan Walker, who has struggled through the early portion of his first full MLB season.

Walker (1-4, 7.47 ERA) was rated by MLB.com as the fourth-best overall prospect in 2013 and posted a 2.89 ERA over 53 innings during the past two seasons. However, in his first stint as a rotation mainstay for Seattle (20-22), the 22-year-old owns this season's worst ERA among starters with at least 35 innings pitched.
