Milwaukee acquired Adam Walker off waivers from the Twins on Friday, according to Phil Miller of The Star Tribune.
Walker, 25, was drafted in the third round in 2012 and boasts a notable amount of power. However, he has proven to be a liability at the plate, striking out in 202 of his 531 plate appearances last season.
Over 132 games in Triple-A last year, Walker batted .243/.305/.479 with 27 home runs and 75 RBIs.
