PHOENIX (WOLO) — Gamecock baseball great Christian Walker was sent back down to Triple-A Reno Monday afternoon, just one day after making a start for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Walker went 2-for-5 during his big-league start Sunday, so it’s likely he’ll make a return to Arizona this season.

Walker was sent back down after AJ Pollock was activated from the 10-day DL.
