Mets News: Daniel Murphy Named to the 2014 NL All-Star Squad, David Wright Snubbed at Third

Mets News:

Daniel Murphy was named to the 2014 NL All-Star Squad on Sunday. The Mets' second baseman is among the National League leaders in hits. 

Murphy has never been an All-Star before, but he was the natural choice on a team that was most likely to be limited to a single representative. The Mets have had multiple All-Stars every year since 2003 (when Armando Benitez was their lone All-Star), but this year's team wasn't loaded with candidates.

David Wright led the NL voting for a while at third base but ended up losing to Aramis Ramirez of the Brewers by a little more than 300,000 votes. Wright was an All-Star seven of the past eight years and started six times, but he was left off this year in favor of Todd Frazier of the Reds and Matt Carpenter of the Cardinals.

Murphy finished fourth in the voting at second base. Chase Utley of the Phillies won the fan vote and will be the starter. Dee Gordon of the Dodgers was also named to the team as a second baseman.

The only other Met who finished among the announced leaders in the fan voting was Curtis Granderson, who ranked 22nd among outfielders.

Mets Rumors: Mets have interested teams in Daniel Murphy, But may sign him long term instead?

Mets Rumors:

According to Andy Martino of the NY Daily News, The San Francisco Giants and Toronto Blue Jays are among the teams who have done preliminary homework on second baseman Daniel Murphy, asking around for opinions on him.

The Giants are trying rookie Joe Panik at second, after Mets castoff Brandon Hicks sunk way below the Mendoza Line. And the Blue Jays are understaffed at the position, using Munenori Kawasaki and Steve Tolleson.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson and other Mets officials over the past few weeks is that the team does not consider itself a seller because of the mediocre National League East where the Mets are only 5.5 games out of first place (36-42).

If Murphy is presumably still a Met in August, the team has the following options: Retain him on a one-year deal at a raise from the $5.7 million he is making in 2014, then let him leave as a free agent; trade him this winter; trade him at next summer’s deadline; or offer a multi-year extension.

Mets News and Notes: Harvey Back on Mound?, EY ready to start running, Wright/Murphy day off soon, Germen Rehab Starts

Mets News and Notes:

Harvey back on mound?
The Mets continue to plan for Matt Harvey to throw off a mound next Monday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Harvey is currently throwing on flat ground at 150 feet in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

He underwent the elbow procedure on Oct. 22.

Harvey has suggested he wants to make five to seven major league starts this season, although Sandy Alderson has been more cautious in his pronouncements.

EY ready to start running
Eric Young Jr., out with a right hamstring strain, is expected to run outdoors Tuesday in Port St. Lucie, Fla., for the first time since landing on the disabled list on May 25.

E.Y. Jr. might have attempted that activity Monday, but sloppy weather at the Mets' complex kept him indoors, running on a submerged treadmill that limits the impact.

Mets News and Notes: Murphy Sluggish, Parnell 50/50, Wheeler faults Himself, Wright-Harvey in Top Jersey Sales

Mets News and Notes:  Murphy Sluggish, Parnell 50/50, Wheeler faults Himself, Wright-Harvey in Top Jersey Sales

Bobby Parnell indicated Thursday that team doctors have told him it is “50-50” whether he will require Tommy John surgery.

The injured closer added that he may make a decision about whether to have surgery in two weeks -- not wait the full six weeks that includes a throwing program Sandy Alderson laid out Wednesday.

That’s because Tommy John surgery has a 10- to 14-month recovery time, and Parnell wants to ensure he does not affect his availability for 2015 if he needs to proceed with the ligament-replacement surgery. Read ESPN (Rubin).
After missing the first two games of the season while in Florida for the birth of his son, Daniel Murphy went 1-for-3 with a walk in his season debut Thursday. But Murphy also committed a pair of errors at second base in the 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals.

"I felt good at the plate. Not so much in the field," Murphy said afterward. "I was a little sluggish on defense. It was frustrating." Read More ESPN (Rubin).
The Washington Nationals ultimately won 8-2 at Citi Field. Yet Zack Wheeler faulted himself, not a bullpen that surrendered five runs or batters that were kept off the scoreboard the final eight innings.

Mets News and Notes: Mejia OK, Ike get Starts, Chris Young down, Murphy in Labor

Mets News and Notes:

Jenrry Mejia was examined by a team doctor and also threw a baseball Sunday and was deemed healthy, Terry Collins said.

The manager added that Mejia is all set to face the Cincinnati Reds on Friday at Citi Field.

Mejia had been struck with a line drive in the right forearm Friday in Montreal. X-rays there were negative, and he was diagnosed with inflammation.
Your Opening Day starter at first base for the Mets? It's Ike Davis.

Terry Collins said he selected Davis because of his favorable career numbers against Stephen Strasburg (.364, two homers in 11 at-bats).

Still, Collins said all three first basemen will play.

Josh Satin will start Game 2 against left-hander Gio Gonzalez. And Collins sounded like Duda would start Game 3.

Mets News: Terry Collins says he expects Murphy back Wednesday, Davis and Duda possible to follow

Mets News:

According to a report from Adam Rubin of ESPN NY,  Terry Collins expects Daniel Murphy to return to the Grapefruit League lineup on Wednesday, when the Mets host the St. Louis Cardinals at Tradition Field.

Rubin also iterates that Collins believes Lucas Duda and Ike Davis could be serving as designated hitters on a minor-league field as soon as Thursday.

Murphy has been hampered with a shin injury, Duda has been bothered by a left hamstring injury and Davis has been troubled by a right calf injury that has had him walking around in a boot to stabilize his injury.

Collins told ESPN:

“They did stuff inside today, some movement drills -- both Duda and Ike,” “We’re hoping that they do it again tomorrow. And then we’re hoping on Thursday maybe at least get them into minor-league camp and DH them.”

Mets News: Daniel Murphy has sore shin, will be day to day

Mets News:

Daniel Murphy is not participating in outdoor morning stretching with teammates Sunday, two days after an aggressive slide into second base resulted in a right-shin issue.

After Friday's game, Murphy had downplayed it as only a scrape.

"The only thing I can say is it's day-to-day right now," Murphy said. "I'm still like 25 percent on the way to my last year's quota of [spring-training] at-bats. So I'm at a pretty good pace right now. My leg's a little sore right now. It's just sore. It's tough to really describe."

Wilmer Flores instead is starting at second base Sunday.

Mets News: Wright and Murphy will play Friday against Cardinals

Mets News:

The Mets Captain David Wright says he is set to make his 2014 Grapefruit League debut on Friday at Tradition Field against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Manager Terry Collins had held Daniel Murphy and Wright out of the first week of exhibition games to attempt to minimize the risk of injury.

Both have been beset by side-muscle injuries in camp in recent years. Murphy also is expected to face the Cards in his first official exhibition appearance.

Wright says, "I felt like I got good work in. I felt I'm a lot more prepared now than I have been in recent spring trainings to enter games, and I think I'll get a little more out of it. As I've mentioned before, I wouldn't be able to get the [pregame preparation] work in if I were playing in the games. I faced some of the minor-league pitchers this past week. I faced Bobby a few times. And then on top of that I get a chance to go work on things that I think are beneficial to me.

Mets News: Mets Give Contracts to Parnell, Murphy and Gee....All Avoid Arbitration

Mets News:

Bobby Parnell will earn $3.7 million in 2014, with the opportunity to earn an additional $50,000 if he appears in 60 games. Parnell, who was eligible for arbitration for the second time, receives a raise from $1.7 million in 2013.

Daniel Murphy and the Mets have settled on a contract for 2014 at $5.7 million. Murphy also will have the opportunity to earn a $50,000 bonus with 500 plate appearances. Murphy earned $2.925 million in 2013. He has one more arbitration year before becoming eligible for free agency after the 2015 season.

Dillon Gee and the Mets have settled on a $3.625 million salary for 2014, according to Earlier in the day, Gee had filed for $4.05 million, with the Mets countering at $3.2 million.

Gee went 12-11 with a 3.62 ERA in 32 starts in 2013. He started slowly last season, in his return from July 2012 surgery that repaired a damaged artery in his pitching shoulder. But beginning with a game against the Yankees, Gee pitched highly effectively. He ultimately logged 199 innings last season.

The only arbitration case left is Lucas Duda who has requested a 2014 salary of $1.9 million, while the Mets have countered at $1.35 million, according to If the two sides don't agree, they would go to a hearing next month before an arbitrator.
