Neil Walker exited Thursday's game versus the Giants with a right quad strain.
Miami is calling Walker day-to-day, although an IL stint is certainly possible here. Martin Prado came in the game for him today.
Marlins infielder Neil Walker went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Cubs. The steal was his second of the season.
Walker is quietly having a solid start to the season in Miami, batting .283 with seven runs scored, three home runs, five RBIs, and two stolen bases through 92 at-bats. His runs and RBIs are hurt by a poor supporting cast, but he could turn into an interesting player in the second half if he gets dealt to a contender before the trade deadline.
Marlins infielder Neil Walker went 2-for-5 with a home run in Saturday's win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Walker is hitting just .190 through 15 games but now has three home runs, including two in his last four games. Walker had a down year in 2018 but is being given an opportunity to rebound while hitting in the middle of the Miami lineup. So far, the results are mediocre, but he should be given plenty of chances with the rebuilding Marlins.
Marlins infielder Neil Walker went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Cincinnati Reds. The homer was his second of the season.
Walker has been playing first base for the Marlins so far this season, hitting third in the lineup but not playing every day. While he hit 23 home runs just two seasons ago, Walker has two lackluster years under his belt since then and may not play every day for the rebuilding Marlins.
Neil Walker came on in the eighth inning and blasted a homer.
I'm sure the Marlins would have like to have Walker in the whole game with their offense struggling and him entering in the eighth and blasting the home run. He should see time on the field as he can play almost anywhere. He had terrible numbers last season (a .219/.309/.354 slash line with the Yankees) but the Marlins took a chance on him and don't have much to lose by putting him out there.
