Mets' Matt Reynolds could start at second if Daniel Murphy isn't ready
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(6:20 pm ET) Mets middle infielder Matt Reynolds may get the nod at second base if regular starter Daniel Murphy is not healthy enough to play on Opening Day, reports MLB.com.
Reynolds, who spent most of last season in Triple-A, is hitting .381 in 42 spring training at-bats, making the decision tough for manager Terry Collins.
"He's a baseball player -- everybody keeps saying that about him, but that's what he is," Collins said. "He handles the bat, he runs the bases, he does a lot of little things right. But Danny Muno's a dangerous bat -- I'll tell you what, he can get a hit. And the other kid, Ruben, he's played there. He's played there under the bright lights and been very successful. So we've got a lot of options."
Murphy is still recovering from a hamstring injury and is uncertain for Opening Day.

|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy has been out since March 19 with a right hamstring injury, and the team is beginning to worry.
"I'm getting a little concerned he's not gonna have enough time to be ready for opening day," manager Terry Collins said, per Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com.
Murphy was hitting .235 in 21 plate appearances before the injury.

|(3/26/15) Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy ran for the first time Thursday since suffering a right hamstring pull a week ago, per ESPN. Manager Terry Collins said Murphy ran without apparent discomfort.

Mets' Daniel Murphy, Wilmer Flores take part in infield drills
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Daniel Murphy (hamstring) and Wilmer Flores (foot) both took part in infield drills at the Mets' spring training facility on Wednesday, according to the New York Daily News. Flores, who fouled a pitch off his left foot Sunday, played shortstop, while Murphy lined up at first base. Both players expect to be ready for Opening Day.
"I feel good," Murphy said, per the New York Daily News. "It feels good. I mean, I feel better than I did a couple of days ago, when it happened. So each day I'll hopefully progress, and we'll see how it feels tomorrow. I don't want to come out and say I'll be ready, and then not be ready."
GM: Mets more hopeful Murphy will be ready for opener than Vic Black
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson expressed more optimism Tuesday for second baseman Daniel Murphy (hamstring), who was cleared to begin baseball activities, being ready for Opening Day than reliever Vic Black (shoulder), per ESPN.
"We're a little more hopeful today that Murphy will be ready," Alderson said. "I think Vic's a question mark at this point. He's going to play catch (Tuesday), but I'm not sure where he'll be on Opening Day."
|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.
