      Mets' Neil Walker: Hits home run in win over Nats

      Walker went 2-for-4 with a home run and scored twice in Monday's win over the Nationals. After a scorching start to the season (slashed .307/.337/.625 in April), Walker has slowed considerably in May -- he's hitting just .200/.278/.308 through 65 at-bats this month. Walker's 11 homers are second-best in the majors among second baseman, only behind Robinson Cano's 12 blasts. The switch-hitter has played in 42 of the team's 44 games so far and should continue to see plenty of opportunities moving forward.

      Mets' Neil Walker: Clubs 10th homer Saturday

      Walker went 3-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday at the Rockies. Walker's 10th homer of the season came after the Mets were trailing by six runs in a game they'd go on to lose. After clubbing nine homers in April, he hit his first bomb in 14 games and his OPS now sits at .844.

      Mets' Neil Walker: Back in lineup Wednesday

      Walker (lower leg) is back in the lineup Wednesday, batting fifth against the Dodgers. After a three-game absence resulting from some lower leg soreness, Walker will get back into the lineup Wednesday with the Mets facing Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers. He's slashing just .228/.276/.435 against right-handers this season and he's a career .164/.179/.273 hitter at Dodger Stadium over 55 at-bats.

      Mets' Neil Walker: Expected back Wednesday

      Walker (shin) is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports. Wednesday has been the target, and it seems Walker will indeed make that target after missing three straight starts and four of five due to the shin injury. Right-hander Kenta Maeda is the Dodgers' probable starter for Wednesday. As good as Walker has been in fantasy so far this year, he's sitting with a rather pedestrian .228/.276/.435 line against right-handed pitching.

      Mets' Neil Walker: Targeting Wednesday for return

      The Mets are targeting Wednesday's game against the Dodgers as Walker's (shin) return to action, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. With another rest day expected Tuesday, Walker would enter Wednesday's outing on the backs of four games off in five. Once he logs his next plate appearance, he'll be aiming to break free of a hitless streak of 20 at-bats over the past seven games (entering Monday).

      Mets' Neil Walker: Sidelined again Monday

      Walker (shin) isn't in the lineup Monday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Walker took a number of foul tips off his shin late last week, resulting in his first non-start of the season Friday. He reentered the lineup Saturday, only to take a seat again Sunday. After serving as a pinch hitter both Friday and Sunday, Walker is likely available in such a role yet again. Nevertheless, Wilmer Flores will cover the keystone and bat seventh in the order.

      Mets' Neil Walker: Dealing with shin soreness

      Updating a previous report, Walker is "pretty banged up" after taking a couple of pitches off his shin Saturday, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. Based on this report, it appears entirely possible that Walker could miss a few days in order to allow his leg to heal up. Consider him day-to-day heading into Monday's four-game road series against the Dodgers, with Wilmer Flores stepping in to serve as the primary second baseman until further notice.

      Mets' Neil Walker: Sits again Sunday

      Walker is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres. Walker received his first day off of the season in Friday's series opener, and will now mysteriously get his second day off in three days. Friday's day off could at least be explained by the presence of a lefty on the mound for the opposing team, but with right-hander Andrew Cashner taking the hill Sunday for the Padres, the platoon matchup can no longer be turned to as an excuse. Perhaps a lingering ailment is starting to take its toll on Walker, though it's also possible a 0-for-19 slump may have something to do with it.

      Mets' Neil Walker: Sitting out Friday

      Walker is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Walker has been slipping a little at the plate in recent days, going hitless in his last four starts, and with a lefty in Drew Pomeranz on the hill for the Padres, it seems like a good time to get Walker his first rest of the season. Wilmer Flores will man second base and bat seventh.

      Mets' Neil Walker: Knocks in a pair in Saturday victory

      Walker went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Saturday's 6-5 victory over the Giants. The veteran switch hitter is enjoying a stellar first season in a Mets uniform, bringing his line to .307/.337/.625 with Saturday's effort. Walker has multi-hit outings in three of his last five games, has driven in runs in three straight. The power surge that the 30-year-old has experienced has perhaps been the most pleasant surprise, as his nine gopher balls lead the team and put him on pace to exceed the career-high 23 he launched in his 2014 campaign with the Pirates.
