With Neil Walker traded to the Milwaukee Brewers, there was a spot open at second tonight.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports first reported the Brewers and Mets were "close" on a deal sending Walker to Milwaukee. A report earlier in the week suggested a couple of teams, including the New York Yankees, wanted Neil Walker, but ultimately chose to go another route and used the excuse of his medical reports to back out of the trade.

Rosenthal reported August 9 the Tigers placed Kinsler on revocable waivers, allowing the Brewers to put in a claim on him or wait for him to clear before engaging in trade talks.

Walker is a strong addition to Milwaukee's lineup.

The 31-year-old infielder entered play on Saturday hitting.264/.339/.442 with 10 homers, 13 doubles and 27 RBIs over 73 games.

Milwaukee second basemen have been very bad in 2017, collectively hitting.244/.312/.360 and with a.672 OPS, which ranks 25th in Major League Baseball.

The Brewers entered Saturday's game against Cincinnati at 59-59, tied for third in the National League Central and three games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the division.
