Fantasy Slant: Brewers Acquire INF Neil Walker from Mets

The Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday acquired veteran second baseman Neil Walker from the New York Mets in exchange for a player to be named. 

Walker, 31, has long been on the trade block with the New York Yankees having shown interest in the past. He's hitting at a decent .264 clip with 10 homers, 36 RBI and a .339 OBP on the season. 

The expectation here is that Walker will take over as the Brewers' everyday second baseman. After a strong start to the season Eric Sogard has seen his average drop to .250, primarily thanks to a .116 average since the end of June. Meanwhile, Jonathan Villar is hitting at just a .222 clip on the season.
