Neil Walker gets one hit in loss to the Astros

Neil Walker went 1-for-3 in a 5-1 loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Neil Walker on the season is hitting .217 with two homers and 14 RBI. Walker seems likely to be a fixture on the bench in most games going forward following Greg Bird's return from the 10-day disabled list. The lefty-hitting Bird should see the bulk of the starts at first base, with the right-handed Tyler Austin (.931 OPS against southpaws this season) likely representing a more ideal platoon mate than the switch-hitting Walker, who has historically been more productive against right-handed pitching.

Neil Walker doubles and homers in the win against Texas

Neil Walker had himself a night on Monday, going 2-for-5 with a double, HR, two RBI and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact

The HR was his first of the season, a season he has struggled overall at the plate. Walker is not worthy of a roster spot in shallow leagues, but with the lineup he is in, if he starts to heat, there is the potential for RBI and R for Walker.

Neil Walker reportedly agrees to deal with Yankees

Neil Walker has agreed to a deal with the New York Yankees, according to Jeff Passan. Terms of the deal were not immediately known and it is contingent on Walker passing a physical.

Fantasy Impact

Walker missed time with injuries last year but still has plenty of power for a second baseman. Although Yankee Stadium would be a great spot for him, it's unclear whether he will be the everyday second baseman or not, in light of the Yankees' excellent infield depth. Keep Walker on your radar for now, and if he does get the everyday job, he could make for a fine late-round sleeper.

Neil Walker reaches base three times in Brewers' win

Neil Walker started at 1B on Thursday and went 2-for-3 with a double, single, walk and a run scored in the Brewers' 4-3 victory over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Batting second most days, Walker has walked 18 times in September leading to a .419 OBP and 14 runs scored. He has also contributed three homers and seven RBIs as the Brewers continue to make a push for a playoff spot. Walker and the Brewers will travel to St. Louis for a three-game series to close out the regular season.

Neil Walker walks twice in Brewers' win

Neil Walker went 0-for-3 at the plate on Tuesday but contributed with two walks and a run scored in the Brewers' 7-6 victory over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Since joining the Brewers, Walker is batting .271 with four home runs, 13 RBIs and 17 runs scored over 34 games played. Walker continues to be in the lineup either at second base or first base every day and should continue with just five games remaining and the Brewers in playoff contention.
