  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Handed loss Tuesday

    Walker (1-2) allowed three runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss versus the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Walker got into trouble in the sixth inning and was unable to complete the frame. Taylor Rogers got the last out, but the Giants didn't recover from the damage. Walker had allowed just two runs over his first 9.1 innings of the season before Tuesday's sloppy outing. He's at a 4.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB through 10 innings while adding one hold over 10 appearances. Walker is a bit buried on the leverage ladder, so it's unlikely he'll be able to consistently rack up saves or holds.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Snags win Sunday

    Walker (1-0) struck out two in a perfect inning to earn the win Sunday over the Padres.

    Walker set down the heart of the Padres' order without problems, and the Giants rallied in the bottom of the eighth inning to make him the pitcher of record. The right-hander allowed a run in his season debut, but he's pitched 4.2 scoreless innings since then. He's allowed four hits and one walks while striking out six over 5.2 innings on the year, and it appears he'll be trusted with some late-inning assignments in close games after serving in a fireman role last season.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Steady in spring

    Walker has allowed a hit and hit one batsman over two scoreless innings in Cactus League play.

    Walker has not walked or struck out a batter. He was a bit of a fireman in 2023, serving as an opener 13 times in 49 appearances while pitching to a 3.23 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 78:24 K:BB over 61.1 innings. That gives him strikeout upside, but the change in managers from Gabe Kapler to Bob Melvin could mean a more steady low-leverage relief role for Walker. The Giants look set in the late innings, headlined by closer Camilo Doval, so Walker shouldn't be counted on for many saves or holds in 2024.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Snags fifth win

    Walker (5-3) allowed one hit and one walk while striking out one over two scoreless innings to earn the win Saturday over the Dodgers.

    Walker has bounced between opening games and working as a low-leverage reliever this year. He's had some struggles in September, allowing 10 runs over 11.1 innings with a 17:9 K:BB, but he's defied a 1.39 WHIP with a 3.23 ERA for the season. Walker has started in 13 of his 49 appearances while adding a 78:24 K:BB, one save, two holds and two blown saves across 61.1 innings overall.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Another opener start Sunday

    Walker will be the opening pitcher Sunday against the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    This will be the 13th opener assignment of the year for Walker, who has posted a 3.20 ERA and 71:22 K:BB across 56.1 total innings for San Francisco. Alex Wood looks poised to follow him Sunday as the Giants' bulk pitcher.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Takes third loss

    Walker (4-3) allowed three runs on two hits and three walks while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Rockies.

    Walker worked in the fifth inning, but he made a mess of things, and the Rockies led the rest of the way. He hadn't given up multiple runs in an appearance since July 24, though he's typically worked short assignments lately when coming out of the bullpen. The right-hander has maintained a 2.59 ERA this year despite a 1.37 WHIP, and he's added a 69:21 K:BB with a save and two holds over 55.2 innings.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Serving as opener Tuesday

    Walker will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

    Walker will be opening for the 12th time this season and will likely cover anywhere from 1-to-3 innings before turning the game over to the bullpen, with lefty Sean Manaea or right-hander Jakob Junis representing the top candidate to work in bulk relief. After going 7-0 in Walker's first seven turns as an opener, the Giants have lost each of the last four games that the right-hander has started.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Will work as opener Saturday

    Walker will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Saturday's game versus Atlanta, Danny Emerman of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

    It's a familiar assignment for Walker, as he'll work as the opener for the 11th time this season. Based on recent usage, Sean Manaea would seem to be the top candidate to work in bulk relief Saturday.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Grabs first save

    Walker picked up the save Wednesday against Philadelphia, pitching a third of an inning in an 8-6 victory.

    Facing Trea Turner as the potential tying run in the 10th inning, Walker was able to coax a flyout to earn the first save of his major-league career. While he seems unlikely to get regular save chances going forward, Walker's been reliable of late, allowing just one earned run over his last 11 appearances (15.2 innings). The 27-year-old right-hander now sports an impressive 2.14 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 53:13 K:BB across 46.1 innings this season.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Activated from paternity leave

    San Francisco activated Walker from the paternity list Tuesday.

    Walker will return to the Giants' bullpen mix Tuesday night in Philadelphia after welcoming a new addition to his growing family. The 27-year-old right-hander has posted a stellar 2.23 ERA and 50:13 K:BB across his first 44.1 major-league innings this season.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Placed on paternity list

    The Giants placed Walker on the paternity list Saturday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Walker will be allowed to miss up to three games as he spends time with his expanding family. Casey Schmitt was brought up in a corresponding move to bolster the Giants' infield depth.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Takes loss as opener

    Walker (4-2) allowed an unearned run on a hit and a walk while striking out two over one inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Rays.

    Walker has given up just two runs (one earned) over 8.1 innings across seven appearances in August while continuing his role as a frequent opener. This was his 10th start of the season, though he's yet to exceed three innings in any appearance. Walker has a 2.23 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 50:13 K:BB over 44.1 innings, and he'll likely continue to see time either as an opener or a low-leverage reliever the rest of the way.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Opening Wednesday

    Walker will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Rays, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Walker turned in a solid performance during his last time out as San Francisco's opener Monday, throwing two scoreless innings and striking out four batters. The 27-year-old righty has been extremely effective with a 2.28 ERA through 43.1 innings this season, but he'll likely remain in the game Wednesday only for the first two or three frames. Ross Stripling will most likely work in bulk relief behind Walker.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Sharp as opener once again

    Walker struck out four over two scoreless frames while serving as the Giants' opening pitcher in Monday's 10-2 loss to the Rays. He worked around two hits and one walk in the 39-pitch outing.

    Walker did his part to the keep the Rays offense at bay, but primary pitcher Tristan Beck (five runs allowed over three innings) was unable to continue the trend once he took over in the top of the third. Expect manager Gabe Kapler to continue making frequent use of Walker as an opener while the Giants have only two locked-in traditional starters at the moment in Logan Webb and Alex Cobb. In nine outings as an opener this season, Walker has produced a 2.40 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 25.0 K-BB% in 15 innings.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Serving as opener Monday

    Walker will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Monday's game against the Rays, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Walker has been effective since the All-Star break, posting a 1.47 ERA and 0.76 WHIP in 18.1 innings over 12 appearances since mid-July. He's made eight starts this season but hasn't pitched more than three innings in any of his appearances, and he'll have another opportunity to serve as an opener Monday.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Opening Wednesday

    Walker will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Walker will be making his eighth start of the season Wednesday. While he hasn't pitched more than three innings in any of his appearances in 2023, Walker has been effective with a 2.52 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 41:11 K:BB through 39.1 frames. Based on their recent usage, Tristan Beck and Sean Manaea represent the likeliest candidates to cover multiple innings behind Walker on Wednesday.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Takes first loss

    Walker (4-1) allowed a run on a hit and a walk in one-third of an inning to take the loss Saturday versus the Athletics.

    Walker put two of the three batters he faced on base, and Scott Alexander allowed one of them to score the decisive run. This was Walker's first loss of the year, made all the more impressive considering he's made seven of his 27 appearances as an opener. He's now at a 2.56 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 41:10 K:BB through 38.2 innings while most often serving in a low-leverage role.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Spares bullpen Tuesday

    Walker (4-0) allowed two hits over 2.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Diamondbacks. He did not strike out or walk a batter.

    After three straight bullpen games, including one in which Walker was the opener (Saturday), he was able to spare his fellow relievers with a strong outing. He's given up just two runs over his last 15.1 innings while posting a 14:1 K:BB in that span. Walker is at a 2.35 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 41:9 K:BB through 38.1 innings over 26 appearances (seven starts) this season. He'll likely continue to be an option to open bullpen games going forward, which drastically limits his ability to collect wins.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Opening again Saturday

    Walker will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    This will be Walker's second turn as an opener this week and seventh this season. He's pitched to an impressive 2.70 ERA so far this season, but Walker will likely go no more than three innings before turning things over to Anthony DeSclafani.

  • Giants' Ryan Walker: Serving as opener Wednesday

    Walker will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher in Wednesday's game versus the Athletics, Danny Emerman of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

    It's Alex Wood's turn in the rotation, but the lefty looks set to serve as a bulk reliever. Walker will be working as an opener for the sixth time this season after allowing four earned runs in 6.2 innings across the previous five outings.
