Neil Walker 2B PIT Dec 14 '12
Neil Walker (back) has been hitting from both sides of the plate this winter and said he's had "no setbacks."
Walker started swinging a bat following six weeks of physical therapy to help a back issue that plagued him over the final six weeks of the season. "No setbacks, everything feels strong," he said. The Pirates are expected to explore a long-term extension with their second baseman this winter.
