Shoulder injury sidelines Braves’ Walker

The Atlanta Braves announced an unfortunate roster move on June 26. Jeremy Walker, a righthanded reliever from Advance, was placed on the 45-day injured list with a right shoulder impingement.

Walker first suffered the injury back in March during Spring Training. He was one of the more positive stories on the Braves farm in 2019, graduating from Double-A to the Majors due to consistent and excellent production. In 9.1 innings in Atlanta, Walker produced a 1.93 ERA and 3.21 FIP.
