The deal, which is reported to be for one year and worth about $5 million, is pending a physical.

Walker, 32, is a nine-year veteran who last played for the Milwaukee Brewers after being traded from the crosstown New York Mets in August. It could be one of the better bargain signings of the offseason if Walker can stay healthy.

Two-goal Ronaldo helps Real win
In the 84th minute, Pedro Leon gave away possession too easily, allowing Modric to feed Daniel Carvajal out wide. Cristiano Ronaldo scored both goals in the win which kept Los Blancos above Valencia in third place.

The injury issues followed him into 2017 as he missed six weeks spanning from June to July.

Walker likely will start at second base and Brandon Drury, acquired from Arizona last month, will play third.

Walker has recorded a league-adjusted OPS that ranked above average in each of his eight full Major League seasons, and he brings a competent glove as well.The Yankees showed interest in Walker past year prior to the non-waiver Trade Deadline, seeking insurance behind Greg Bird at first base, but they were unwilling to meet the Mets' asking price. But a suddenly-rebuilding team, which also shipped off Jay Bruce, Lucas Duda and Addison Reed, opted to deal the pending free agent to the Brewers for minor-league pitcher Eric Hanhold.

Until this signing, Tyler Wade appeared to be on his way to winning the job from a field that includes top prospect Gleyber Torres, utility infielder Ronald Torreyes and two non-roster players, Danny Espinosa and Jace Peterson. Walker batted.265/.362/.439 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI in 111 games last season between the Mets and Brewers. Walker has hit at least 14 home runs every season since 2012, and he's a career.272 hitter.
