Mets give Daniel Murphy the day off Thursday vs. Cubs
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/14/15) Mets infielder Daniel Murphy was given the day off Thursday and is out of the starting lineup against the Cubs. He had started all but two of the Mets' games so far this season, but with a lefty on the mound, manager Terry Collins opted to give Murphy a breather. Murphy is hitting just .154 against left-handed pitching in 2015.
In his place, Ruben Tejada will get the start at third base and bat eighth. This is the first appearance at the hot corner for Tejada, either in the big leagues or the minor leagues. He did get some reps at third during spring training, however.
Dilson Herrera will make his second consecutive start at second base on Thursday.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Mets rookies Dilson Herrera and Kevin Plawecki are out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.
Herrera has made seven straight starts at second base since joining the lineup but will get a breather Sunday, with Ruben Tejada taking his place. Plawecki has made five straight starts behind the plate, but Anthony Recker will catch Sunday.
The Mets are road favorites (-150) in Philadelphia.
Mets infielder Ruben Tejada earns start at second base on Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Mets infielder Ruben Tejada is battling his way back into the rotation in the infield. Saturday, Tejada made a beautiful stop at short, earning the respect of manager Terry Francona, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Collins said after the game Tejada made a great play by a good player and that ever since he lost his job, Tejada has never worked harder.
That hard work is paying off as Tejada will draw the start at second base on Sunday, his third start of the season at second.
Mets' Wilmer Flores not in lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores is not in the lineup for a second straight day Sunday against the Nationals.
Flores has started 21 of his team's 25 games at the shortstop position, but Ruben Tejada will get the call for a second straight day. Tejada was 1 for 3 Saturday but is just 4 for 21 with three walks and two doubles on the season, while Flores has hit .240/.278/.387 with three home runs and eight RBI in 75 at-bats. Flores has also committed errors in three straight starts.
"We're hoping a couple of days refreshes him and gets him back on track," manager Terry Collins said Sunday morning, per ESPN New York.
The Mets are favorites (-110) against the Nationals Sunday.
