Daniel Murphy still not running

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Daniel Murphy plans to play in another minor league game on Monday afternoon as he works back from a pulled right hamstring, although he will continue to avoid running. In recent games, Murphy has jogged to first base after making contract, then departed the basepaths. Murphy did take grounders at second base at the team's complex on Monday morning, including to his backhand. New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson has indicated that Murphy will be held out of Grapefruit League games this week.

Source: Mets prefer Danny Muno to Matt Reynolds

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Danny Muno, not fellow New York Mets infield prospect Matt Reynolds, is likely to claim an Opening Day roster spot assuming Daniel Murphy opens the season on the disabled list, an organization source told ESPN.com. Neither Muno nor Reynolds is on the 40-man roster. And Reynolds has the higher upside. Still, the Mets are planning to hold Murphy out of Grapefruit League games this week and backdate any DL stint. That would allow Murphy, who has a pulled hamstring, to miss as few as the opening five games of the season.

Daniel Murphy bats in minor league game

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy, who might open the season on the disabled list with a pulled right hamstring, ramped up his rehab on Saturday. Murphy took several at-bats in a minor league intrasquad game. In his first plate appearances, against right-handers Matt Koch and Kevin McGowan, Murphy produced opposite-field hits. He still took things gingerly, though. Each time after making contact, Murphy jogged to first base and then proceeded off the field.

Mets now labeling Daniel Murphy DL candidate

JUPITER, Fla. -- After expressing optimism only a few days earlier, New York Mets officials now sound like Daniel Murphy is more likely to open the season on the disabled list. Murphy pulled his right hamstring eight days ago. "Look, any hamstring is typically a minimum of a couple of weeks," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "For him to come back sooner than roughly Opening Day would be a little surprising. But given the way he felt -- and the fact that it was a very mild strain -- it's still a possibility he will be ready.
