Mets trade Neil Walker to Brewers, per report

Neil Walker could be pointing his way out of town as deal could be in the works

Neil Walker could be pointing his way out of town as deal could be in the works

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

The team did not immediately disclose the terms of the deal for Walker, a switch hitter who is batting.264 with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs in 73 games this season.

A reported deal between the Mets and Yankees involving Walker at the non-waiver trade deadline was reportedly nixed over medical records, though the veteran second baseman has since assured he's just fine. He missed a chunk of the summer after suffering a torn hamstring attempting to leg out a hit. A report earlier in the week suggested a couple of teams, including the New York Yankees, wanted Neil Walker, but ultimately chose to go another route and used the excuse of his medical reports to back out of the trade.

Overall though, Walker has actually had a decent second year in Queens, so the Brewers will be picking a very talented infielder. Walker is an impending free agent and is owed the remainder of his $17.2 million salary this season. He hit.282 with 23 home runs and 55 RBIs previous year.

Prior to going to the Mets in 2016 via trade, he spent his first seven Major League Baseball seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

As a full-time shortstop for the Brewers in 2016, Villar batted.285 with 19 homers and 63 RBIs while leading the league with 62 stolen bases.
