Daniel Murphy went 4-for-5 with a run scored against the Braves on Friday.
Murphy collected three singles and a double. The 29-year-old had just 4 hits in his last 22 at-bats coming into Friday's action, so fantasy owners will have to hope that this is a sign of things to come over the final week and a half of the season. Sep 19 - 11:39 PM

Daniel Murphy went 0-for-4 in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Murphy missed the previous game after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch Thursday. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward.
Sep 14 - 5:36 AM

Daniel Murphy (wrist) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Murphy exited Thursday's game after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch. X-rays came back clean, but there's no doubt Murphy is sore so he'll get some rest. Eric Campbell is at third base Friday.
Sep 12 - 3:10 PM

X-rays on Daniel Murphy's left wrist came back negative.

Murphy had quite the welt on his wrist after the hit by pitch, but he can probably safely be considered day-to-day. He's moved from second base to third base following the shutdown of David Wright (shoulder).
Sep 11 - 10:20 PM

Daniel Murphy exited Thursday's game against the Brewers after being hit by a pitch on the left wrist/forearm area.

The area immediately swelled up and Murphy was removed from the game. He'll surely be sent for X-rays. An update on his status should be available before long.
Sep 11 - 10:09 PM

Daniel Murphy started at third base for the Mets Wednesday.

With David Wright being shut down for the season, the Mets will turn to fill-ins for the remainder of the season. Murphy isn't a stranger to the position -- he's started 25 games at third base in his career -- but he hasn't manned the hot corner since 2011. It may turn out to be a positive for fantasy purposes -- if Murphy starts five games at third between now and the end of the season he'll be third base-eligible for next season.

Mets activated 2B Daniel Murphy from the 15-day disabled list.

Murphy, out since August 24 with a right calf strain, is in the Mets' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rockies. His return will push 20-year-old Dilson Herrera to the bench.
Sep 9 - 4:01 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said that Daniel Murphy (calf) should be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Murphy was scheduled to go through full baseball activities Monday, so barring any last-minute setbacks with his calf, he should be back in the starting lineup Tuesday. Dilson Herrera has been filling in at second base over the past 10 days, but he figures to serve in a part-time role for the remainder of the month.
Sep 8 - 5:07 PM

Daniel Murphy (calf) ran, took ground balls, and will hit on Monday.

Murphy will see how he feels Tuesday before the next step will be decided. The 29-year-old has been sidelined since August 24 with a right calf strain and there's no clear timetable for his return.
Sep 8 - 4:02 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that Daniel Murphy (calf) is "looking at quite a lengthy DL stint."

General manager Sandy Alderson also added that the MRI on Murphy's right calf showed "a significant issue," and it "could end up taking more than the minimum time on the disabled list." With just 28 games remaining in the season, it's certainly possible Murphy's year is over. Dilson Herrera was called up on Friday to take over at second base.
Aug 29 - 5:20 PM

Mets placed 2B Daniel Murphy on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 25, with a right calf strain.

The results from Murphy's MRI aren't known yet, but the club will proceed cautiously and place him on the DL regardless. Dilson Herrera will come up to play second base for the Mets.
Aug 28 - 10:23 PM

Daniel Murphy will undergo an MRI on his ailing right calf.

Murphy hasn't played since Sunday and just hasn't progressed as hoped. It's possible he'll wind up on the disabled list, but obviously more will be known after the MRI results come back. Wilmer Flores is handling second base while Murphy is out.
Aug 28 - 7:08 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Daniel Murphy is not progressing from his right calf injury.

Murphy left Sunday's game with a sore right calf and hasn't seen much in the way of improvement since. Fantasy owners need to secure a backup plan for the near future.
Aug 28 - 4:11 PM

Daniel Murphy (calf) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Murphy is considered day-to-day due to a sore right calf. Wilmer Flores is filling in again at second base.
Aug 27 - 3:17 PM

Daniel Murphy (calf) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Murphy was removed from Sunday's game with a sore right calf and is scheduled to see a doctor Tuesday at the stadium. He's considered day-to-day. Wilmer Flores will fill in at second base.
