Relief Pitcher Tyler Walker, who has over four years of major league experience, has been recalled by the Phils for todays game against Boston. Walker has pitched very well in Lehigh Valley, going 2-1, with a 1.40 ERA in his 15 appearances. Opponents are hitting just .125 against him this year, and he has 3 saves. Walker’s control has been excellent walking just 3 and striking out 20, in 19.1 innings pitched. It is my belief, for what it is worth, that Walker is the one that can give the Phillies what they need from Lehigh Valley. He will provide some consistency, has closed in the majors (he had 23 saves in ’05) in the past and can pitch multiple innings if needed. Sergio Escalona was sent back down to Lehigh Valley after pitching multiple innings for the Phils last night.
