Pirates | Neil Walker to the DL

The Pittsburgh Pirates placed 2B Neil Walker (hand) on the 15-day disabled list with a right hand laceration Friday, May 3, and recalled INF Jordy Mercer from Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move. Walker's DL stint is retroactive to April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Inge and John McDonald have split time at the keystone in Walker's absence. Inge should be your target in NL-only leagues if you need middle infield help. Mercer will likely be used for infield depth for the time being. The good news if you own Walker is that his DL stint was backdated to last Saturday, so he won't spend much time on the DL if he's ready to return soon.
