New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy said he is open to extension talks with the club during the season, but no in-season extension talks are planned, according to a team source. That means Murphy will likely head to free agency next offseason. The source noted that the Mets are deep in upper-level middle infield prospects like INFs Dilson Herrera, Matthew Reynolds and even Wilmer Flores. Murphy is set to earn $8 million this season.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy isn't a bad second base option in the late middle rounds of standard leagues, and a high batting average is his main skill, but he can also offer a little power and little speed. Just don't expect a return to the 20-stolen base mark that he put up in 2013.
