Daniel Murphy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a triple in Friday's win over the Yankees.

Murphy snapped a 1-1 tie with a solo homer off Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka in the sixth inning. The dinger was his 12th of the season. He also legged out his first triple. He's posting solid--if unspectacular--numbers this season, including a .273/.316/.431 triple slash, 12 homers and 64 RBI. His career best for home runs in a season is 13 (set in 2013), which he could match if he manages to mash a few more taters before the season closes out.

Daniel Murphy is not in the Mets' lineup Monday.

Sep 14 - 3:18 PM

Daniel Murphy was instrumental in Sunday's 10-7, 10-inning win over the Braves, hitting a game-tying three-run homer in the ninth inning.

Holding a 7-4 lead, the Braves recorded the first two outs in the ninth easily enough, but then it all fell apart. Juan Lagares doubled, Curtis Granderson drew a walk, and Murphy capped it off with a dramatic game-tying homer off Ryan Kelly. He would drive in one more run in the 10th, via a bases loaded walk. With the huge game, Murphy is now slashing .274/.318/.424 with 11 homers and 63 RBI.
Sep 13 - 5:48 PM

Daniel Murphy is absent from the Mets' lineup Thursday.

Murphy just came off a strained left quad, though his absence Thursday is more about routine rest than anything. Kelly Johnson is starting at second base versus Atlanta.
Sep 10 - 3:43 PM

Daniel Murphy (quad) went 0-for-4 with a sacrifice fly in his return to the starting lineup Monday against the Nationals.

Murphy had a pinch-hit appearance on Sunday, but a strained left quad had held him out of the starting lineup since last Wednesday. He might not be 100 percent, but he's good enough to give it a go.
Sep 8 - 8:22 AM

Daniel Murphy (quad) is back in the Mets' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Nationals.

It will be his first start since last Wednesday. Murphy, who had been sidelined with a strained left quadriceps muscle, will play first base and bat third in the Mets' series opener in Washington on Monday.
Sep 7 - 10:07 AM

Daniel Murphy (quad) grounded out as a pinch-hitter on Sunday afternoon against the Marlins.

Murphy was held out of the Mets' starting lineup yet again with a strained left quad. The hope is that he'll be able to return to full-time duty Monday for the start of a massive three-game set in Washington, D.C.
Sep 7 - 8:33 AM

Daniel Murphy (quad) is expected to be held out the remainder of the weekend and return to the Mets starting lineup on Monday.

Murphy is available off the bench in case of an emergency, though manager Terry Collins will be extremely reluctant to use him. The infielder left Wednesday's game with a strained quad and was given a cortisone injection.
