Neil Walker went 2-for-4 and slugged a grand slam in a 10-2 win over the Marlins on Friday.

His big fly was the key blow as the Brewers scored eight times in the eighth inning and turned a close game into a laugher. It was his fourth homer since being acquired from the Mets in mid-August. The 32-year-old Walker is still one of the better-hitting second basemen in the league, although he missed a big chunk of the season on the disabled list with a torn hamstring. He has a .266 batting average with 14 home runs and 48 RBI in 99 games.

Neil Walker went 1-for-3 with a home run in the Brewers' loss to the Reds on Wednesday.

His solo shot in the top of the first inning off Reds starter Luis Castillo was the only run of the afternoon for the struggling Brew Crew. Walker got the start at first base in this one with Eric Thames again riding the pine.
Sep 6 - 4:07 PM

Neil Walker socked a solo homer for the only offense of the game in Friday’s win over the Nationals.

Walker took Tanner Roark deep in the first inning, which was enough support for Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers’ bullpen. The veteran infielder is batting .306 (15-for-49) with two homers, two doubles, and seven RBI over 16 games since being acquired from the Mets.
Sep 1 - 11:57 PM

Neil Walker went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the Brewers topped the Giants 4-3 on Tuesday night in San Francisco.

Walker has been on fire since joining the Brewers, hitting .444 (12-for-27) with a homer and five RBI in his first eight games. He could wind up being a critical cog for a team that's clawing for a postseason berth. With this victory, the Brewers are currently three games back of the second Wild Card spot in the National League.

Neil Walker went 1-for-3 with a walk in Monday’s shutout loss to the Giants.

The Brewers managed just four hits on the day, all of them singles. Walker has been red-hot since being acquired from the Mets earlier this month, batting .435 (10-for-23) over seven games. Recently hitting second in the Brewers’ lineup, Walker should be owned in mixed fantasy leagues.
Aug 22 - 1:31 AM

Neil Walker went 2-for-4 and scored a run in his Brewers' debut on Sunday.

Walker found himself hitting cleanup in the Brewers' lineup, which would lead to ample RBI opportunities the rest of the season if he stays near the middle of the order. The veteran second baseman is hitting .268/.341/.442 with 10 homers and 36 RBI on the season.
Aug 13 - 5:25 PM

Brewers acquired 2B Neil Walker and cash from the Mets for a player to be named later.

The deal had been expected for hours but didn't become official until after the Brewers and Mets wrapped up their games on Saturday. With Eric Sogard fading after a hot start and Jonathan Villar barely hitting over .200, the Brewers obviously felt they needed an upgrade at second base. The Mets are officially in rebuild mode after dealing Lucas Duda, Addison Reed, Jay Bruce and Walker in the span of a couple weeks. Curtis Granderson and Asdrubal Cabrera could be the next to go if New York's fire sale continues.
Aug 12 - 11:33 PM

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports the Brewers are "close" to acquiring Neil Walker from the Mets.

Per reports, the Mets are getting a player to be named later. Walker was scratched from Saturday's game against the Phillies, though an official announcement isn't expected until later tonight. The Mets had a deal in place to trade Walker to the Yankees on July 31, but the Bombers suspiciously backed out due to medical concerns. Asdrubal Cabrera and Jose Reyes will be candidates to replace Walker at second base in New York while Walker figures to supplant Eric Sogard and Jonathan Villar as the Brewers' primary second baseman down the stretch. To complete the deal, the Mets will reportedly eat at least some portion of Walker's remaining $5 million salary.

Neil Walker finished 4-for-5 with a home run and three runs scored as the Mets skunked the Phillies 10-0 on Thursday.

To say Walker broke out of a slump would be an understatement -- after collecting just four hits, all singles, in 11 games since coming off the disabled list in late July, he doubled that total in one night. The homer was one of four hit by the Mets on the night. The 31-year-old is batting .261/.334/.441 overall and could be a candidate to be moved in a waiver deal this month.

According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, the Yankees had a deal in place to acquire Neil Walker from the Mets on July 31 but backed out due to medical concerns.

The Mets were none too happy that the deal fell through and believe the real reason the Yankees backed out was because they had just acquired Sonny Gray. Despite their differences, the Mets and Yankees later engaged in talks for Jay Bruce, though the Mets felt they were getting low-balled by the Bombers and eventually dealt Bruce to the Indians. Now that the Mets have begun their youth movement by calling up top prospects Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith, Walker figures to be a goner when his contract expires after this season.
Aug 10 - 8:03 PM

Mets activated 2B Neil Walker from the 10-day disabled list.

Walker has missed the last six weeks with a partially torn hamstring. The Mets surely would like to ship him in a trade somewhere, although they could wait until August since Walker will clear waivers given his salary.
Jul 28 - 5:57 PM

Neil Walker (hamstring) will join the Mets Friday in advance of their series opener against the Mariners.

Walker has concluded his rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas and will be activated in time for Friday night's game in Seattle. He should resume his post as the Mets' everyday second baseman with Asdrubal Cabrera likely shifting over to third base. It took Walker roughly six weeks to recover from a partially torn hamstring.
Jul 27 - 8:53 PM

Neil Walker (hamstring) is expected to rejoin the Mets this weekend.

Walker is currently out on a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas. The Mets will be taking on the Mariners for a three-game set this coming weekend and so long as Walker is able to avoid a setback over the next two days, he should be good to go for that series. A partial tear of his left hamstring has kept him on the shelf since mid-June.
Jul 26 - 7:14 PM

Neil Walker (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout Sunday in his second minor league rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Walker went 2-for-7 during his brief rehab stint and appears on track to be activated early this week. The veteran second baseman has been sidelined since mid-June with a partial tear of his left hamstring.
