Pirates | Neil Walker returning Tuesday

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker (oblique) will likely return from the disabled list and play Tuesday, July 23. He's scheduled to be examined by doctors Monday, July 22, after a three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis. "I feel good," Walker said. "I had no problems, no setbacks. I took a lot of normal swings. The more I swung, the better it felt. That was very encouraging." 3B Brandon Inge could be released or 3B Josh Harrison could be sent down to make room for Walker.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Walker will spell the end of consistent playing time for Jordy Mercer. Get Walker back in your deep mixed lineups.
