Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Taijuan Walker criticized the organization after he was not used in the playoffs.
Walker spent the last two seasons as a starter for the New York Mets before signing a four-year, $72 million contract with Philadelphia this offseason.
During his first season with the Phillies, Walker posted a 15-6 record with a 4.33 ERA before failing to throw a single pitch in the postseason.
“Disrespect is at an all-time high next year,” Walker wrote on X.
He also liked some tweets from fans who agreed with his opinion.
Phillies pitcher Taijuan Walker blasted the organization during postseason play
Walker sent out a tweet suggesting he felt disrespected by not participating in the playoffs
Walker also liked several tweets that echoed his views following his original tweet
“The disrespect comes from your boss.” He had no confidence in you, which was a joke, and his play-calling cost the Phillies this series. REMEMBER IT!’ Read one of the tweets Walker liked.
“To me, the true disrespect was that you didn’t pitch in the postseason.” “Thank you for supporting your teammates,” reads another.
As the regular season came to a close, Walker was far from his best on the mound.
In September, he posted a 5.91 ERA and also posted his worst walks per 9 innings ratio since 2014.
Chances are that Walker’s poor performances early in the postseason played a role in Walker not playing in the postseason.
