Heyman reported that the Astros are looking for a starter who can hit, doubtlessly a primary baseman, and Walker is the participant they’d want.

Walker, who can be a free agent after the season, has 20 residence runs, 59 RBI and a .267 batting common to start out the season. Touchdown him forward of the July 30 commerce deadline would definitely be the improve the Astros are looking for, however it could probably take rather a lot to get Arizona to commerce him.

The report about Houston’s pursuit of Walker comes amid buzz surrounding Toronto Blue Jays star Vladimir Guerrero Jr. In June, Astros insider Michael Schwab reported that Guerrero is likely one of the prime commerce targets for Houston, which might be one other potential improve at first base.
