Report: Mets likely to keep Muno over Reynolds, if Murphy goes on DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) If Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy begins the season on the disabled list due to a hamstring injury, the team is more likely to choose Danny Muno over prospect Matt Reynolds to replace him on the roster, a team source told ESPN.

If Murphy is out, the Mets prefer to have Muno and Ruben Tejada play at second base, with Reynolds being sent to Triple-A to start at shortstop.

One of the reasons the Mets are considering sending Reynolds to the minors is because the team doesn't want to avoid a dilemma in case Reynolds thrives in Murphy's absence and manager Terry Collins wants to keep him around as a bench option. They do not want to start his MLB service time for a backup role.


Mets' Matt Reynolds could start at second if Daniel Murphy isn't ready


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) 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 Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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."

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.
