  Veteran IF Neil Walker elects free agency after clearing waivers Although Walker wasn’t particularly sharp with the Phillies, he notched a solid .261/.344/.395 batting line with the Marlins just last year. He was also a consistently productive hitter from 2010-17, slashing a combined .273/.342/.439 in 4294 plate appearances between the Pirates, Mets and Brewers. He’ll be eligible to sign with any club for the duration of the season should he choose. If he does latch on with a new club by Tuesday, he’d still be eligible for his new club’s postseason roster.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
