Brewers Acquire Neil Walker From Mets

Aug 13, 2017 12:18 PM

The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired Neil Walker and cash from the New York Mets for a player to be named later.

The Brewers had expressed interest in Ian Kinsler of the Detroit Tigers, before shifting their attention to Walker since the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

Walker, 31, hit .264 with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs in 73 games with New York this season.

"He's a first-rate guy,'' Sandy Alderson said of Walker. "He was very important in the clubhouse, and we're very glad we had him for the time that we did. I think he distinguished himself in his time as a Met.''

Mets Received 'Zero Bites' On Jay Bruce

Aug 7, 2017 7:46 AM

The New York Mets were unable to trade Jay Bruce prior to last week's non-waiver trade deadline because they received "zero bites" on the slugger.

Bruce, 30, has hit 29 home runs and will be a free agent this winter. He would appear to fit the mold of a classic rental player.

"You would like to think that someone can use the type of offense that I offer," Bruce said. "But like I said, it is more complex than that. You have to fit on a team."

At the Dodgers' hotel on Friday afternoon, hours before he dazzled for seven scoreless innings at Citi Field in his Dodgers debut, Yu Darvish met with general manager Farhan Zaidi, the man who engineered the blockbuster deal with the Rangers that brought the electric right-hander to Los Angeles minutes before the non-waiver Trade Deadline.
