Mets to sit Wright, Cuddyer, Murphy, Granderson for first two games
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) The Mets are planning to sit David Wright, Michael Cuddyer, Daniel Murphy and Curtis Granderson during the first two games of spring training, reports ESPNNewYork.com. Their first game of the spring will be Friday.
Report: Mets not planning to engage in contract talks with Murphy
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) Mets All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy, who enters his final year under contract, said Thursday he would be willing to discuss signing a contract extension. However, it doesn't appear the Mets have started contract negotiations.
"As of right now I'm a Met for this year, for sure, love to be here in the future," Murphy said, per NJ.com. "But that is way in the future. I got too much anxiety about today to worry about what happens in November.
"I've always been open to an extension. I've never approached the blessing of playing in the big leagues with thinking I need to maximize every single dollar I can get out of this game. I've made a whole bunch of money already. I think that it's something that we've always been willing to discuss. I think maybe both sides just haven't come and discussed it, from my understanding."
It appears Murphy could be headed toward free agency after the season since a team source told ESPN no in-season contract talks are planned. The source added while it is not 100 percent certainty Murphy won't be with the Mets next season, the expectation is the team will let him test free agency.
The source added the Mets are deep with upper-level middle-infield prospects and the team could have a viable successor.
Report: Mets, Daniel Murphy settle at $8 million
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Mets have avoided arbitration with infielder Daniel Murphy by agreeing to a one-year deal with $8 million, the New York Post reports.
The two sides were able to meet in the middle after being separated by $1.2 million once arbitration figures were exchanged. Murphy hit .289/.332/.403 with nine home runs, 57 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 596 at-bats in 2014.
Mets, Daniel Murphy exchange arbitration figures
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) Mets infielder Daniel Murphy has filed for $8.6 million in arbitration, while the team has offered $7.4 million, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.
Murphy is in his final season of arbitration eligibility, and the team has no plans to sign the infielder to a multiyear deal, ESPNNewYork.com reports, leaving him on track to reach free agency after the 2015 season. He hit .289/.332/.403 with nine home runs, 57 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 596 at-bats in 2014 while making the All-Star team for the first time.
|2014 summary: Daniel Murphy didn't quite live up to the standard he set in 2013, when he surprised many owners by finishing among the top five second basemen in Fantasy value. He did what he does pretty much every year, which is bat around .290, hit doubles, not strike out too much and chip in a few stolen bases. Murphy's .289/.332/.403 slash line is similar to those he posted in each of the two previous seasons, though his counting stats were down from 2013 in part because he missed a couple of weeks late in the season with a calf injury.|
Playing time status: Murphy is penciled in as the Mets' starting second baseman, and he has been largely durable over his six-year major league career.
2015 outlook: A beacon of consistency, Murphy is still in the peak phase of his career and should continue to lurk around the top 10 of second basemen. Owners in standard mixed leagues should look to target him in the middle rounds.
