SEATTLE -- Jacob deGrom will, in fact, face right-hander Erasmo Ramirez on Tuesday night at Safeco Field.

But Seattle has a change of plans for Wednesday's series finale. Bartolo Colon originally was listed to face right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma (8-4, 2.95 ERA).

Now, the Mariners will give Iwakuma an extra day of rest. While it has been unannounced, Terry Collins expects right-handed prospect Taijuan Walker called up from Triple-A Tacoma to face the Mets. The 21-year-old Walker has made two major league appearances this season. He has a 4-1 record and 3.76 ERA in eight Pacific Coast League starts this season.
