Mets Trade Second Baseman Neil Walker to Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers have pulled off a deal to acquire second baseman Neil Walker in a trade with the New York Mets. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports was the first to report that a deal was close. In 2017 so far, Walker is hitting a line of.264/.339/.442 with 10 home runs and 36 runs batted in. He missed a chunk of the summer after suffering a torn hamstring attempting to leg out a hit.

The Mets almost traded Walker to the Yankees before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but the deal was nixed due to medical concerns, according to a source.

With Walker heading to Milwaukee, he has exclusively played in the National League over his career.

The Mets acquired Walker prior to the 2016 season in a trade with the Pirates, and he accepted the qualifying offer this offseason.

Addison Reed, Lucas Duda and Jay Bruce were all traded by the Mets in recent weeks, saving the club about $9 million.

Overall though, Walker has actually had a decent second year in Queens, so the Brewers will be picking a very talented infielder.

The Brewers entered Saturday at 59-59 and three games back in a tight NL Central race. The Mets have fallen out of the playoff race, entering Saturday at 52-61. The club's pitching staff has been decimated by injuries, with six starters now on the disabled list.
