Apparently unsatisfied with what they had, the Yankees added a veteran free agent second baseman with a good resume to the mix on Monday morning by signing Walker, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported.

After finishing one win away from the World Series last season, the Yankees appear to be all-in on another run in 2018.

Walker, 32, was traded to the Mets for Jon Niese in late 2015 after his seventh season with the Pirates. 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. He should be used primarily as a second baseman, but he could provide some depth at the corner infield spots as well.

The move likely means top prospect Gleyber Torres, 21, will start the season in Triple-A.

Partly sunny skies with a high of 55 in Boulder today
By Friday , Oklahoma City high temperatures will be near 79 degrees, but there is no rain in the forecast this week. Today's forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of 55 and an overnight low of 29.

Walker recently told the New York Times that he had been close to signing with the Yankees, but the team's trade for Brandon Drury halted momentum. The 32-year-old hit.265 with 14 homers and 49 RBIs last year for the Mets and Milwaukee, who acquired him August 12.

Regardless, Walker could have a highly-productive stay in the Bronx.

That makes New York's lineup that much more imposing come Opening Day.
