According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, free agent second baseman Neil Walker is seeking a four-year deal.
Walker is 32 years old and had back surgery last year, so it's probably unrealistic. Teams also have multiple alternatives available on the trade front. Walker batted .265/.362/.439 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI in 111 games this past season between the Mets and Brewers. Dec 12 - 11:02 AM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets have interest in a reunion with second baseman Neil Walker.

The Mets are exploring all possible options via trade and free agency to fill their hole at second base, and bringing back the veteran infielder could make sense. Walker accepted the Mets' $17.2 million qualifying offer last season and was dealt to the Brewers midseason after the two sides couldn't come to an agreement on a multi-year extension. It remains to be seen if the interest is mutual on Walker's end. Puma notes that there could be some "bruised feelings" toward the Mets.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Pirates have interest in a reunion with free agent second baseman Neil Walker.

Morosi says the ongoing difficulty with getting Jung Ho Kang back into the country has forced the Pirates to consider a variety of infield options. Walker, 32, batted .265/.362/.439 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI in 111 games this past season between the Mets and Brewers.
Nov 15 - 2:38 PM

Neil Walker went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored as the Brewers defeated the Reds 4-3 on Thursday afternoon.

Walker also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely in three of his four trips to the plate. The veteran infielder is hitting .267/.362/.444 with 14 homers and 49 RBI in 109 games between the Mets and Brewers this year.
Sep 28 - 7:37 PM

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.
Sep 16 - 1:18 AM

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.
Aug 23 - 1:47 AM

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.
Aug 12 - 5:54 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 12:05 AM

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.
