Yankees Move For Walker Isn’t Big, But Has Big Ramifications (AUDIO)

On Monday, the New York Yankees came to terms with former Pirates, Mets and Brewers infielder Neil Walker, inking him to a one-year deal worth $5 million. The switch-hitting infielder has the inside track at second base for the Pinstripes and provides power for a Yankees lineup already loaded with power.

But perhaps more importantly, the move allows the Yankees to keep top prospects Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres in the minor leagues longer, which is good for service time controls. It also makes the Yankees a lot less interesting.
