Pirates | Neil Walker decision about DL coming soon

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker (hand) will probably have a decision made by the organization on Friday, May 3, about whether he needs a DL stint. The Bucs may decide to make a roster move if he's made little progress by then.

Fantasy Tip: Earlier reports indicated that Walker still hasn't been able to grip a bat. If that he can't hold one without feeling some discomfort by this theoretical deadline, a DL stint seems likely. Brandon Inge would probably continue to receive regular playing time and probably be somewhat useful in NL-only leagues, with a remote shot at the same in very deep mixed leagues.
