Neil Walker hasn’t appeared in a game since July 6 because of discomfort in his right oblique. And he won’t be returning before the All-Star break.

According to the Pirates’ official team Twitter feed, the second baseman was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday evening and infielder Josh Harrison was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis to take his place on the active 25-man roster.

Walker, a native of the Pittsburgh suburbs, has registered a .244/.347/.384 batting line, six homers and 26 RBI in 72 games this season for the Bucs, who trail the Cardinals by a half-game in the National League Central. The 27-year-old hit .280/.342/.426 with 14 homers and 69 RBI in 129 games last season.

    dl seems to be an annual thing with this guy. don’t forsee a slump. they were only one clutch hit away with men on base to win these last 5 games. we have to much pitching depth to collapse. i would call this a mild slump.
