Walker is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Walker will be withheld from the starting lineup for Game 162 against Jack Flaherty and the Cardinals. Jonathan Villar draws the start at the keystone in his stead, batting second. After a strong showing following his late-season acquisition, the Brewers will surely make a push to resign Walker this offseason.

Walker is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Walker played hero during Friday's win over the Marlins, slugging a grand slam in the eighth inning of that contest. Despite his recent success, he'll open the game on the bench for the second consecutive day as the Brewers are facing off against Marlins' southpaw Dillon Peters. Hernan Perez will again draw the start at second base and bat leadoff in his stead.

Walker is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Walker will give way to Hernan Perez at second base against lefty Adam Conley, as he did the last two times the Brewers faced southpaws. The switch-hitting Walker has fared far better from the left side of the plate this season and will likely continue to play primarily against righties over the remainder of the season.

Walker went 2-for-4 with a walk and a grand slam in Friday's 10-2 win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

He has only eight hits so far in September, saddling him with a .229 batting average, but seven of them have gone for extra bases (four doubles, three homers) and he's drawn 10 walks, giving Walker a robust 1.013 OPS through 11 games on the month. The 32-year-old figures to remain productive over the final weeks of the season.

Walker is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers will send out a righty-heavy lineup against left-hander Steven Brault, so Walker will give way to Hernan Perez at the keystone for Monday's series opener. Look for Walker to return to the lineup Tuesday with Gerrit Cole on the bump for the Pirates.

Walker is not in the lineup Thursday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

As per usual, Walker will head to the bench in favor of Jonathan Villar with the opposition deploying a left-handed starter (Gio Gonzalez). The veteran second baseman, who is slashing .311/.404/.422 in 14 games with the Brewers, should return to the lineup against righty Tanner Roark on Friday.
