The Yankees began spring training without a starter at two infield spots.

The Yankees signed second baseman Neil Walker on Monday, pending a physical, according to Yahoo Sports.

The 51-year-old superstar who played iconic Kahlo in her 2002 biopic added, "She celebrated her uniqueness". The corporation said it got the rights through Kahlo's niece, Isolda Pinedo Kahlo, more than a decade ago.

Even after acquiring Brandon Drury from the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Yankees will get Walker to a reported $5 million contract for one season. Second baseman Starlin Castro, an All-Star last season, was traded to Miami in the Giancarlo Stanton deal, third baseman Chase Headley was traded to San Diego in a salary dump and third baseman Todd Frazier became a free agent and signed with the Mets. He still managed to bat.264 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI in 73 games.

Walker, the 11th overall pick in the 2004 MLB Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates, split time a year ago between the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers, batting.265 and hitting 14 home runs. Youngsters Tyler Wade and top prospect Gleyber Torres, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, are slotted at second base on the depth chart, though Walker has been used at multiple infield positions.

Karti was arrested by CBI on his return from the United Kingdom in connection with the FIR lodged on May 15 a year ago . His remand comes to an end today and the CBI would seek three more days custody.

Regardless, Walker could have a highly-productive stay in the Bronx. Walker has hit at least 14 home runs every season since 2012, and he's a career.272 hitter.

That makes New York's lineup that much more imposing come Opening Day.
