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.

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Brandon Inge made his first career start in right field Friday, May 3, against the Washington Nationals.
Fri, 03 May 2013 13:47:28 -0700
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.

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.

The Pittsburgh Pirates activated 3B Brandon Inge (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 23, and optioned OF Alex Presley to Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Inge is merely a backup at the hot corner to Pedro Alvarez in Pittsburgh, so unless Alvarez gets hurt is mired in a bad slump, Inge can be ignored in mostly all fantasy formats. Alvarez is hot lately, too.
