Yankees, Neil Walker close to $5M deal

Tyler Wade could end up beginning the year in Triple-A instead of starting at second for the Yankees due to Monday's signing of free agent Neil Walker. File New York Yankees sign Neil Walker (Report)

As first reported by Jeff Passan, the New York Yankees have agreed to terms with second basemen/utility man Neil Walker. FanRag Sports reported that the sides agreed to a one-year major league contract worth about $5 million.

NY made a similar deal by acquiring Brandon Drury from the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier this winter to start at third base should the prospects need more time to hone their games in the minors.

That makes New York's lineup that much more imposing come Opening Day. I'm excited we got him.

With the signing of Walker, it seems all but finalized that top prospects Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres will begin the season in Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre.

As of a few moments ago, we now know what the mysterious expansion signaling this shift turned out to be: The Witchwood . To help them survive the night, players can draw on an arsenal of new tricks, including the eerie new Echo keyword.


Walker started out the 2017 season with the New York Mets but was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers at the non-waiver trade deadline.

One of the dozens of free agents still waiting to be signed after a slow (which is putting it mildly) offseason, the Walker deal rescues another veteran from the recently closed free-agent spring training camp.

An agreement with Walker at that price would raise the Yankees' projected luxury tax payroll to approximately $182 million, about $15 million below the luxury tax threshold. The 32-year-old hit.265 with 14 homers and 49 RBI last year for the Mets and Milwaukee, who acquired him August 12.

Walker, 32, will give the Yankees a veteran at second base. He can also fill in at first base and third base. However, those negotiations stalled after the Yankees' acquisition of Brandon Drury from the D-backs on February 20.A career.272 hitter with 130 home runs, Walker captured a Silver Slugger Award with the Pirates in 2014.
