Neil Walker, 2B, PIT - As of June 26, Walker was having a disappointing offensive season, his triple slash sitting at .256/.317/.351, down from 2011. In a year in which the young second baseman was supposed to break out - or was supposed to at least build upon his solid 2010 and 2011 seasons - he was struggling. But that has all changed of late. Over his past 12 games, Walker has caught fire, along with the rest of the Pirates' lineup. He is hitting .489/.564/.787 with two homers and 11 RBI. He has been seeing the ball well, walking eight times in his 55 plate appearances over that span. Of course, Walker won't keep up this pace for the rest of the season, but his OPS is up to .774 and getting over the .800 hump now seems like a realistic possibility.
