NEW YORK (AP) Mets second baseman Neil Walker will miss the rest of the season because of surgery for a herniated disk in his back, the latest in a series of severe injuries to strike the defending NL champions this year.

Walker made the announcement Thursday before the wild-card contenders played Miami.

"It just wasn't getting better," he said.
