Latest Update Walker smacks 15th homer on Tuesday   Wed Jul, 23, 07:17 AM

Walker continues to be a beast in the second half, now hitting .526 with two home runs, five RBI and eight runs scored over his last five games. This has certainly been a great season for the Pirates second baseman who is now slashing .286/.357/.474 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI through 325 at-bats and has shown no signs of slowing down. If he can maintain his career-best 21.7 AB/HR in the second half, there is no question he will go over 20 home runs for the first time in his career. Analyst: Matthew Beck

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Has great size, 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:  : Needs to cut down on his strikeout rate and become more patient to maximize his potential as a hitter. While steady, he's an unspectacular defender.

    Walker logs three hits in Sunday's victory
  • Walker registered his second straight three-hit performance on Sunday, as he continues to have a solid bounce back season at the keystone. Now slashing .283/.352/.462 with 14 home runs and 45 RBI, Walker remains one of the better options at his position even if his recent production takes a hit as the season progresses.

    Neil Walker logs three hits Saturday
  • Walker continues to rake in the month of July, now slashing .302/.377/.528 with seven extra-base hits (2 HR) and seven RBI in 53 at-bats. The Pirates have been surging after a slow start, and a lot of that credit has to go to Walker at this point in the season as he has hit for both power (13 HR w/ 44 RBI) and average (.277 BA) up to this point. Until he proves otherwise, Walker should remain a starter in all fantasy formats at the keystone moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck

    Neil Walker hits 13th home run
  • Walker continues to hit for some fantastic power this season and is just three home runs shy of tying a career-best. The fact that he's doing it while maintaining a steady .271 average and similar peripherals as he's had over the years indicates that he's not going to have some sudden drop-off in production. With the way everything looks so far, you should be able to expect relatively similar production from him in the second half.Analyst: Howard Bender
