Player Notes
Neil Walker went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run, but the Pirates fell to the Braves 7-3 on Monday.

Advice: Walker had started only two games in the past week due to lower back stiffness, but didn't show any signs of discomfort against Ervin Santana. His third-inning solo shot helped reduce the Pirates' deficit to 6-2, but it wasn't enough. The second baseman has had a fine year, bashing 17 home runs and driving in 51 runs while slashing .279/.348/.462.

Sun, Aug 24 Rotoworld
Neil Walker (back) is not in the Pirates starting lineup on Saturday.

Advice: Walker has been dealing with lower back stiffness since the beginning of the month, so it looks as though manager Clint Hurdle wanted to give him day off and not push him on consecutive nights. Jayson Nix will once again fill in at second base.
