Brewers to acquire Walker

Brewers to acquire Walker

FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Brewers are acquiring second baseman Neil Walker from the Braves. Sitting at 52-62, the Mets continue to sell off their impending free agents for future prospects. "I'm very glad we had him for the time we did and I think he distinguished himself as a Met". He hit.282 with 23 home runs past year despite missing the final month of the season because of back surgery. He accepted a $17.2 million qualifying offer from the Mets last offseason.

Brewers acquired 2B Neil Walker and cash from the Mets for a player to be named later. While a deadline deal with the Yankees was in the works, it fell through at the last minute due to concerns about his medical records.

The 31-year-old infielder missed a significant chunk of the season after rehabbing a partial tear in his left hamstring and was activated from the 10-day disabled list just three days before the trade deadline.

"I've always felt pretty good there", he said.

Walker has struggled to stay healthy in the past.

The Brewers are now riding a six-game losing streak and enter Saturday with a 59-59 record. Walker enjoys a fair amount of success at Miller Park as well.

NY had expected to contend but is 52-62. He hit.275/.344/.462 with 33 home runs and 91 RBI in 186 games as a Met. For the Mets, this gives them more of a chance to see what they have in Amed Rosario while playing Asdrubal Cabrera at second.
