NEW YORK -- Second baseman Neil Walker has accepted a $17. Erik Gudbranson Jersey .2 million qualifying offer and will return to the New York Mets for 2017.Walker confirmed via Twitter that he will be back with the Mets. Happy to say Im back in Orange and Blue for 2017!! Lets go Mets! #unfinishedbusiness, Walker posted on Monday.?Walker underwent season-ending surgery to repair a herniated disk on Sept. 8. That likely depressed his ability to get a multiyear contract, even though his lower-back woes are expected to be behind him.Absent the back surgery, Walker might have been able to land a deal between what Daniel Murphy received with the Nationals (three years, $37.5M) and Ben Zobrist received with the Cubs (four years, $56M) last offseason.Walker, 31, hit .282 with 23 homers and 55 RBIs in 412 at-bats with the Mets in 2016. The long ball total matched his career high and trailed only that of St. Louis Jedd Gyorko (30) and Murphy (25) among National League second basemen.Walkers return for the 2017 season raises the Mets payroll commitment, including estimates for arbitration-eligible players, to roughly $124 million. It has a direct impact on Jose Reyes, who might recede to a backup role with, potentially, some outfield time, assuming starting infielders David Wright, Asdrubal Cabrera, Walker and Lucas Duda?are all healthy.A Pittsburgh native, Walker was selected by his hometown club in the first round of the 2004 draft. He remained with the Pirates until he was traded to the Mets last December for left-hander Jonathon Niese.Despite the lack of a long-term attachment to the Mets, Walker demonstrated his affinity for the team by maintaining a presence in the clubhouse this past season, even after undergoing back surgery with nearly a month remaining in the season. His wife gave birth to the couples first child, daughter Nora Vail, in late August.Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes will decline his qualifying offer. After he vacated the remaining two years and $47.5 million on his previous contract by opting out, returning for one season at $17.2 million wouldnt have made sense. The Mets will recoup a draft pick if Cespedes signs elsewhere, though there is still a chance he returns.Eight other free agents did not accept offers from their former teams by Mondays 5 p.m. EST deadline: outfielders Jose Bautista (Toronto), Ian Desmond (Texas), Dexter Fowler (Chicago Cubs) and Mark Trumbo (Baltimore), designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion (Toronto), closer Kenley Jansen (Los Angeles Dodgers) and third baseman Justin Turner (Dodgers).Information from the Associated Press was used in this report. Jake Virtanen Jersey . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football.

Getting treatment, taking it day-by-day and just trying to get ready for the game this weekend.Barkley was forced from No. 8 Penn States game against Rutgers after a helmet-to-helmet hit and left Saturday against Michigan State favoring his right leg. The Nittany Lions (10-2, 8-1 Big Ten, No. 7 CFP) were comfortably ahead in both games when Barkley was hurt in the third quarters and used a committee of running backs to finish those games.Theyd like to be able to turn to their playmaking star against the No. 6 Badgers (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten, No. 6 CFP) and their nearly impenetrable defense as both teams chase berths in the College Football Playoffs.We had a lot of success on Saturday with those other backs in the backfield but obviously we all know Saquon is a special player, Penn State coach James Franklin said.Barkley has accounted for 1,083 total yards and 10 touchdowns during Penn States eight-game winning streak but has been held to under 100 yards rushing in each of the last three games. In that span, Indiana and Michigan State sold out to stop him and held Barkley to less than 2 yards per carry.Andre Robinson, Miles Sanders and Mark Allen have helped change the pace and have tried to alleviate pressure on Barkley. Theyve combined for 182 yards on 28 carries and Robinson has scored twice over the last three gaames.

Although many of those carries have resulted in big plays, Barkley has been bottled up behind the line of scrimmage more than a handful of times as defenders have keyed on the mesh point on zone-read runs.It hasnt deterred him, and Barkley has said hes learned to be patient in settling for the yards he can get when defenses focus on him. Wisconsin is among the best when it comes to stopping the run. The Badgers are third nationally, allowing just over 100 yards and 13 points per game.Barkleys aware of the numbers and the physicality that awaits.Theyve got a bunch of studs over there, Barkley said. Its going to be a really tough game, a physical game, a Big Ten game so Im going to come out ready for it.---More AP college football: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys White Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts From China ' ' '
