Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal is revealing the Mets have agreed to send second baseman Neil Walker over to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday afternoon.

The Mets almost traded Walker to the Yankees before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but the deal was nixed due to medical concerns, according to a source. The 31-year-old is hitting.264/.339/.442 with 10 home runs, but he's been limited to 73 games due to a hamstring injury. He is primarily a second baseman, though lately the Mets have been using him at first and third bases as well.

"He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training, before he came to Wembley", Wenger said. You need a combination of talent and attitude and he looks to me as if he has both. "I have had no contact with PSG".

Walker was almost traded to the Yankees on July 31, according to sources, but the deal crumbled upon the exchange of medical information. His salary this season is $17.2 million, of which the Brewers would appear to be responsible for about the remaining $4.7 million.

Overall though, Walker has actually had a decent second year in Queens, so the Brewers will be picking a very talented infielder.
