Mets | Daniel Murphy fatigued

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 07:43:04 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (fatigue) won't play Sunday, April 12, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) was dealing with a hamstring injury at the start of last week and has just two hits in 20 plate appearances so far this season. Mets 2B Ruben Tejada ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start in place, but isn't worthy of FantasyScore consideration.

Mets | Daniel Murphy in starting lineup

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 11:53:19 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) is in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Monday, April 6. He is batting fifth in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has not faced major league pitching since March 19, which makes him a risky option on FantasyScore. Owners may want to consider a healthier option at second base if they are worried about his injury.

Mets | Daniel Murphy may have day off

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:36:57 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) may receive a day off in the series against the Atlanta Braves later this week to ease him back in after dealing with a hamstring injury. Murphy played eight innings maximum in minor league games last week.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) surely is a weak FantasyScore play on opening day against Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals. You might want to hold off on Murphy until he gets his legs underneath him after dealing with a hammy strain in spring training.

Mets | Daniel Murphy has a nice day at the dish

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 12:36:06 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) went 3-for-4 with a double and a walk Friday, April 3, in a minor league intrasquad game. He played second base and ran the bases.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) pushes the needle a touch in all fantasy categories, and fielding and running the bases is a positive for him moving into the season. He'll face Max Scherzer, Jordan Zimmermann and Stephen Strasburg to start the season, though, so Murphy is likely best avoided in FantasyScore contests until he draws a favorable opposing pitcher.

Mets | Daniel Murphy expected to be ready

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 12:38:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) is expected to be ready for opening day against the Washington Nationals Monday, April 6, according to general manager Sandy Alderson. Murphy took five at-bats in an intrasquad game Thursday, April 2, but didn't play in the field. He'll play in another minor league game Friday, April 3, and join the team in Washington.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) should be avoided on opening day at FantasyScore while going against Max Scherzer. Staying away from Murphy until he gets his legs under him against major league pitching is probably wise.

Mets | Daniel Murphy expected for opening day

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 12:43:48 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) is expected to be ready for opening day, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is an extremely risky FantasyScore play to start the season, as he has just 21 plate appearances this spring, and he hasn't had an at-bat since leaving a game Thursday, March 19. When healthy, though, he is a nice mid-priced target when facing a favorable pitching matchup. In seasonal leagues, Murphy is a low-end second base option in mixed leagues.

Mets | Daniel Murphy sees playing time

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 12:31:16 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) played in a minor league game Wednesday, April 1. Murphy was able to play at second base during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) could miss the first few weeks of the season if he needs to be placed on the disabled list. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid Murphy until he is able to play a few games in a row. Ruben Tejada ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Matt Reynolds are options to start at second base if Murphy misses time, but neither player is a great option on FantasyScore or in mixed leagues.

Mets | Daniel Murphy not running

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 09:48:13 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) plans to play in a minor league game Monday, March 30, but he will continue to avoid running. He has jogged to first base in recent games and hasn't been allowed to run the bases. Murphy took ground balls Monday, and general manager Sandy Alderson said Murphy will be held out of Grapefruit League games this week, which would allow the team to backdate a disabled list stint.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy's ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but his chances of opening up the regular season on the DL appear likely. That means you should shy away from using him at FantasyScore right off the bat.

Mets | Opener unlikely for Daniel Murphy?

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 13:19:51 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) may have a tough time making it back in time for opening day, and the team is starting to sound pessimistic about his chances. Murphy will only play in minor league games next week if he can.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Muno and Matt Reynolds are in consideration to start at the keystone on opening day if Murphy ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) isn't ready, but neither should really move the fantasy needle, since Murphy's injury doesn't seem too serious. Look to avoid Murphy during the opening week of FantasyScore.

Mets | Daniel Murphy does some running

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:56:56 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) did some running Thursday, March 26, and did not appear to have any problems.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($4,700, 9.4% of the cap) appears to be making progress from his injury, but there is still a question about whether will be ready for opening day. Owners on FantasyScore may want to wait for him to be 100% before using him.
