Report: Mets not planning to engage in contract talks with Murphy


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) 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.
