ALERT: New York Yankees Signing Free Agent Neil Walker

The Brewers should go back to the mb logo. A career.272 hitter with 130 homers and 522 RBIs, the 32-year-old can play multiple infield positions, a trait that will likely come in handy with the Yankees, who won't shy away from exploiting their versatility. A person familiar with the negotiations says free agent infielder Neil Walker and the New York Yankees are close to an agreement on a one-year contract for about $5 million. The deal is agreed upon but pending a physical as reported by Jon Heyman. Walker will presumably step right into the open second base job.

The pact is reported to be a one-year deal worth $5 million.

Zinedine Zidane: 'Karim Benzema record speaks for itself'
Ronaldo scored twice, his second six minutes from the end, as Real won 2-1 and avoided another slip-up in La Liga. That leaves him with 18 goals in the league, third behind Luis Suarez with 20 and Messi with 24.

NY made a similar deal by acquiring Brandon Drury from the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier this winter to start at third base should the prospects need more time to hone their games in the minors. They have roughly $22M to spend under the luxury tax threshold, so Walker fits the payroll nicely. He should be used primarily as a second baseman, but he could provide some depth at the corner infield spots as well.

Ronald Torreyes, 25, was penciled in to start at second base this season, but like third base, the Yankees opted to acquire established help.

The Yankees were poised to wait out the market and sign a bargain free agent late in the offseason, and that is exactly what happened with Walker. However, those negotiations stalled after the Yankees' acquisition of Brandon Drury from the D-backs on February 20.A career.272 hitter with 130 home runs, Walker captured a Silver Slugger Award with the Pirates in 2014. Getting him for one year and $5M is insane.
