Walker sustained a serious hamstring injury this summer which drastically affected his trade value, however he has still hit a respectable .264/.339/.442 with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs in 73 games.
Unlike Jay Bruce, Walker was ineligible for qualifying offer this offseason after already receiving one previously. Therefore, the Mets would not have been compensated if he had signed elsewhere.
In 51 career games at Miller Park, Walker has hit .286/.332/.534 with 11 home runs, 16 doubles and 31 RBIs.
