Walker to accept QO from Mets

By Gem Tablak 

New York Post’s Joel Sherman reports via tweet (Tweet Below) that Neil Walker will accept his $17.2M qualifying offer. In 2016 Walker earned $10.55M, so he will be looking at roughly a $7M raise.  Hard to complain when his slash was .282/.347/.476 & a .823 OPS & 118 OPS+ with 23 HR’s which ties his career high & 55 RBI’s while maintaining a steady glove in the field on a injury shortened season. 

With all that being said, it feels like a one year $17.2M audition for a long term contract next off-season & it will be very interesting how this factors in with a potential Yoenis Cespedes deal, if at all.
