Daniel Murphy 2B/3B NYM 16 Days

Murphy agreed to a one-year, $8 million contract with the Mets on Friday, The Star-Ledger reports.

Murphy put together another good season for the Mets in 2014, batting .289/.332/.403 with nine home runs and 57 RBI, adding 13 stolen bases. He has been very consistent at the plate over the past four seasons, and there's no reason he shouldn't have another solid season as the Mets' second baseman in 2015.

Murphy went 4-for-5 with a run scored in the Mets' win over Atlanta on Friday night.

The four hits raised his average to .299 and with David Wright out, he has been playing third base and he has put in enough games to qualify at an additional position for the remainder of the season in many leagues.

Murphy (wrist) is making his fifth start at third base Monday.

Five game is the threshold in some leagues to qualify at the position' giving Murphy additional value, though he likely is being used at second base. Murphy won't hit the 20-game threshold followed by most leagues for position qualification in the following season, but should reach 10 games, so check your league rules accordingly.

Murphy (wrist) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

Matt Thornton hit Murphy with a pitch Thursday, in just Murphy's third start back from the DL. He was fortunate to escape with just a bruised wrist, however, and will step back in Saturday after missing one start. The 29-year-old Murphy has recorded a pair of singles in nine career at-bats against Saturday's starter Doug Fister.

Murphy (wrist) is out of the lineup Friday against the Nationals.

Murphy was diagnosed with a bruised wrist Thursday and listed as day-to-day, but will miss Friday's contest as a result of the injury. With Murphy sidelined, Eric Campbell gets the start at the hot corner and will bat second for the Mets.

X-rays taken on Murphy's left wrist came back negative, and he has been diagnosed with a bruise, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

Murphy was forced from Thursday's dame in the eighth inning after being struck by a pitch on his wrist. He could miss a day or two due to some soreness, but it does not appear he is dealing with a setback that could end his season prematurely.

Murphy is 2-for-7 with a walk since returning to the lineup Tuesday.

With David Wright (shoulder) out for the season, the Mets are expected to lean on Murphy as their primary option at third base. As a result, he may pick up eligibility at the position down the stretch, and for 2015 in some leagues.

Murphy (calf), who was activated off the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, is playing third base Wednesday with David Wright (shoulder) out for the season, ESPN New York reports.

Mets fans and fantasy owners may remember that Murphy played third in the minors, but in the majors, went from left field to first base and then over it second, where he has been the last few seasons. Playing him at third, enables Dilson Herrera to get back in the lineup at second. This switch may not be permanent and is possibly influenced by Rafael Montero, Wednesday's starter, being a flyball pitcher, so Murphy's defense at third may not be as critical as it would be with a groundball pitcher.
