There was "late interest" in Mets 2B Neil Walker during the time leading up to the trade deadline, reports Marc Carig of Newsday.
The Mets traded away Lucas Duda and Addison Reed before the deadline. Asdrubal Cabrera, Curtis Granderson, and Jay Bruce were among others involved in trade rumors before the deadline.
Walker returned last Friday after missing over a month with a hamstring injury. He is hitting .266 with nine home runs and 34 RBIs for the Mets this season.
Walker, 31, re-signed on a one-year deal during the off-season. He played in 113 games for the Mets last season, hitting .282 with 23 home runs and 55 RBIs.
