Rodger’s Quick Take on Yankees Signing 2B Neil Walker
If you’re the Yankees you can never have enough infielders, especially if the price is right. The Yankees landed veteran free agent infielder Neil Walker for only $5 million which means 21 year old Gleyber Torres will start the season in the minors. Gleyber has struggled at the plate this spring following Tommy John surgery, and Walker is a perfect fit because he is a true second baseman. The only negative is Walker has a history with back injuries, but the Yankees have so much depth, they could withstand an injury to Walker. Yankees have all their infield bases covered.
