Daniel Murphy went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Murphy has been on fire at the plate, as he entered Tuesday's action having hit .354 since June 19. His fifth-inning homer off of lefty Mike Minor brought the Mets back within a run, but it wasn't enough. The second baseman is slashing a productive .302/.352/.424 with seven home runs, 34 RBI, and 11 stolen bases on the season.
Jul 1 - 10:46 PM

Daniel Murphy singled three times in five trips to the plate in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

The Mets logged nine hits over eight scoreless innings before breaking out for two in the ninth. Murphy didn't score once despite reaching base three times on singles. The second baseman is slashing .301/.351/.417 with six home runs, 32 RBI, and 11 stolen bases. If the Mets don't attempt to sign Murphy to an extension, they could try to trade him by the deadline.
Jun 29 - 4:47 PM

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Giants and Blue Jays have expressed trade interest in Daniel Murphy.

It's no surprise that either contending club is interest given the holes they have at second base. The Mets tried to trade Murphy last winter and could attempt to do so again this summer. However, one club source told Martino that an extension for Murphy is "possible." The two sides haven't discussed a long-term deal yet, but Murphy said Tuesday that he and his agents have talked about the possibility. The second baseman is making $5.7 million this year and is eligible for arbitration for a final time this offseason.

Daniel Murphy finished 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Sunday's 11-5 rout of the Marlins.

Daniel Murphy will hit leadoff Thursday against the Brewers.

It might be more than a one-game thing, as Mets manager Terry Collins said that he could envision Murphy and Bobby Abreu hitting first and second on a regular basis. The Mets have been looking for a leadoff hitter all season, so it will be an interesting situation to watch. Murphy at least has a strong argument to hit there against right-handers.
