Mets | Daniel Murphy shifting to third

Fri, 01 May 2015 05:46:24 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy will shift to third base until 3B David Wright (hamstring) returns.

Fantasy Tip: That will let the steam out of any fantasy value Eric Campbell had. Murphy ($2,900, 5.8% of your cap) is hitting just .198-2-14 this season and is a risky second base play on FantasyScore.

Mets | Juan Lagares, Daniel Murphy hot

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:42:31 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares and 2B Daniel Murphy are beginning to heat up of late. Lagares is 9-for-17 in the last four games and is 10-for-23 in his last five games at the Miami Marlins. Murphy is 10-for-25 (.400) with two home runs and six RBI in his last six games in Miami. Murphy's three hits Tuesday, April 28, made him 6-for-11 with five RBI in the last three games, raising his average 60 points to .205.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) and Murphy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) are trending in the right direction for FantasyScore users, and you should look to capitalize on their hot streaks while you can. Both would seem to be acceptable plays in daily games today against the up-and-down Mat Latos Wednesday night.

Mets | Daniel Murphy coming alive

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 22:33:06 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy went 3-for-4 with a double Tuesday, April 28, against the Miami Marlins. After his average dipped to .145, he is 6-for-11 with a homer, three doubles and five RBIs over his past three games, taking over the team lead in RBIs at 14 while pushing his average to a respectable .205.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy hadn't given FantasyScore owners much reason to roster him early in the season, but at $2,900 (or 5.8% of cap) he has been a steal over the past few games.

Mets | Daniel Murphy won't be benched

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 14:11:28 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is not in danger of losing his starting second base job, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Adam Rubin.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is off to a terrible start, hitting just .169 (11-for-65) with one home run and 11 RBI. It's still early, so it's too early to completely give up on Murphy, but he should be benched in standard leagues and avoided at FantasyScore for the time being. Perhaps Ruben Tejada ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) starts to take playing time from Murphy if he continues to struggle.

Mets | Daniel Murphy sitting out

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 12:51:59 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has played the last several games, so he is likely receiving a day off. Ruben Tejada ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will be starting at second base and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

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.
