Mathis, who typically catches each of Zack Greinke's starts, should be back in time to catch the right-hander when he gets the ball on Wednesday against the Pirates.

This is Walker's third stint with the D-backs this year. He has appeared in 16 games, 14 of which have been as a pinch-hitter, and was hitting .252 with five homers for Reno.
