Photo Neil Walker struggled to duplicate last year's performance and became the fourth pending free agent to be traded by the club in less than three weeks. "I'm very glad we had him for the time we did and I think he distinguished himself as a Met".
Alderson added that it would be "some time" before the Mets learn the identity of the "player to be named". Reyes stepped in and is hitting second against the Phillies' Aaron Nola. He accepted a $17.2 million qualifying offer from the Mets last offseason.
NY gets a player to be named and will pay the Brewers cash to cover a portion of the $4,041,530 remaining in Walker's $17.2 million salary. Walker, 31, was reportedly close to a move to the Yankees at the deadline.
Walker was on the 10-day disabled list from June 15 to July 27 with a partial tear in his left hamstring.
"I'm excited to be back in a playoff race", Walker said.
"I've always felt pretty good there", he said. He missed the end of the 2016 after undergoing surgery for a herniated disc in his back.
NY had expected to contend but is 52-62.
In 51 career games at Miller Park, he is batting.286 (59-for-206) with 11 HR and 31 RBI. Amed Rosario will continue to receive the lion's share of starts at shortstop.
