Walker, a switch-hitter with roots in the NL Central as a former Pirate and who will be a free agent at season’s end, is slashing .264/.339/.442 with 10 home runs for the Mets. The Brewers rank 25th in the Major Leagues this season with a .672 OPS at second base, a position primarily manned by Jonathan Villar and Eric Sogard.
