He has been competing with Tyler Wade and Ronald Torreyes for the open spot at second base.

The Yankees signed second baseman Neil Walker on Monday, the team announced.

The one-year deal is pending a passed physical. I don't know what happens right now if he signs."Walker's contract is believed to be worth about $5 million, according to MLB Network insider Jon Heyman, which would keep the Yankees comfortably below their envisioned $197 million payroll threshold". Walker was dealt to Milwaukee on August 12.Walker recently told The New York Times that he had discussions with the Yankees this offseason, believing that he could bounce between first base, second base and third base.

The Yankees previously traded for Arizona infielder Brandon Drury to play third base after going into camp saying they'd be happy to start rookies at third and second.

Although we're now into the final two weeks of spring training, Walker won't be starting from scratch, as he had been working out the last couple weeks with other unsigned free agents in Bradenton, Fla.

He proved his versatility on the infield by making 17 starts at first base, 95 starts at second base and four starts at third base between the Mets and the Brewers last season. Veterans Danny Espinosa and Jace Peterson are also in the mix. Also, perhaps the Yankees are concerned about Wade's left wrist, which he banged up last Saturday diving for a ball. Walker has hit at least 14 home runs every season since 2012, and he's a career.272 hitter.
