MLB Orioles Trade Rumors: Baltimore Interested In Neil Walker
According to MASNsports’ Roch Kubatko, the Baltimore Orioles expressed interest in trading for Pittsburgh’s Neil Walker last week during the GM’s meetings. Walker, 30, is a former first round pick who was drafted by and played his entire career for his hometown team of Pittsburgh. He’s a career .272 hitter, and a second baseman by trait – he …Neil Walker would be a great piece for the Orioles. It also makes a lot of sense for the Pittsburgh Pirates to move him. Infield talent, especially talent with power, is a high valued commodity right now, so the Pirates would be in for a big return. Pittsburgh also has some infield depth right. In all likelihood, the Pirates would like to give Jung-Ho Kang a full time gig. Kang hit .287 with 15 home runs in 481 AB's in 2015. He also finished third behind Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs and Matt Duffy of the San Francisco Giants in Rookie of the Year voting. I would look for the pirates to move either Walker or Pedro Alvarez this offseason.
