Daniel Murphy 2B NYM 7 Hrs

Newsday's Marc Carig reports that teams have reached out to the Mets about trading for Daniel Murphy, but the club is "more likely to keep Murphy rather than deal him away."

Murphy, who made his first All-Star team this season, is batting .287/.335/.406 with seven homers, 38 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 2014. The 29-year-old is making $5.7 million this year and will be eligible for arbitration for a final time over the winter. He's been connected to the Giants and Blue Jays but it sounds like the Mets would prefer to hang on to him for the time being.

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Giants and Blue Jays have expressed trade interest in Daniel Murphy.

It's no surprise that either contending club is interest given the holes they have at second base. The Mets tried to trade Murphy last winter and could attempt to do so again this summer. However, one club source told Martino that an extension for Murphy is "possible." The two sides haven't discussed a long-term deal yet, but Murphy said Tuesday that he and his agents have talked about the possibility. The second baseman is making $5.7 million this year and is eligible for arbitration for a final time this offseason.

Daniel Murphy will hit leadoff Thursday against the Brewers.

It might be more than a one-game thing, as Mets manager Terry Collins said that he could envision Murphy and Bobby Abreu hitting first and second on a regular basis. The Mets have been looking for a leadoff hitter all season, so it will be an interesting situation to watch. Murphy at least has a strong argument to hit there against right-handers.
