Latest Update Neil Walker went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in the Pirates victory over Cubs on Sunday. Sun Sep, 14, 04:48 PM
Has good size, some home-run power and run-producing acumen as a switch-hitter. Also runs fairly well for a big guy. Has settled in nicely at second base.
Flaws: : While steady, he's an unspectacular defender and somewhat injury-prone. Doesn't take advantage of his athleticism when running the bases.
Walker is one of the better second basemen in fantasy, though durability has always been an issue.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Walker is a necessary sparkplug in the Pirate lineup, and nights like this are why he was missed so much when he was a non-DL benchwarmer in August.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Walker has a career-high 19 home runs despite missing time in June and August. He will likely always have an increased injury risk, but he is money in the bank to bat around .270 with 15 home runs every season.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Walker had a great day at the plate in a Pirate victory over the Cubs. Walker is approaching 20 home runs on the year and is the best source of power from the second base position in the national league. Walker is in the midst of a four-game hit streak where he has racked up eight hits in his past four games. Start Walker with confidence.Analyst: Colby Conway
