Pirates discussing extension with Neil Walker
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/11/14) The Pirates are discussing a possible contract extension with second baseman Neil Walker, according to MLB.com.
Walker is under contract through 2016, but the team would like to make sure the Pittsburgh native is a Pirate for life. "We would like nothing more than to have Neil Walker end his career as a Pirate, there's no question about that," general manager Neal Huntington said. The club attempted to extend Walker back in 2011, but talks broke off quickly.
Walker, 29, hit .271/.342/.467 over 512 at-bats last year.
|2014 summary: Neil Walker upped his home run total for the third straight season in 2014, this time taking the enormous leap to 23, tying with Brian Dozier for first among second basemen. A non-speedster with a pedestrian batting average, he didn't offer much aside from |
those home runs, but they alone elevated him from an also-ran at second base in mixed leagues to must-start status, ranking 10th at the position in Head-to-Head points leagues and eighth in Rotisserie.
Playing time status: Walker missed a couple weeks for the Pirates because of an appendectomy and still has only once played even 140 games in five seasons as a big-leaguer, missing time every year with one injury or another. Since they're all completely unrelated, though, it wouldn't be fair to assume the same for Walker in 2015.
2015 outlook: Walker isn't exactly a stud in Fantasy and probably maxed out his potential last year, but at a time when home runs are scarcer than ever, his improvement in that area makes him too valuable to overlook. At a relatively deep position, he checks in at the back end of the top 12, making him a sure draft pick even in leagues that don't require a third middle infielder.
