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.

Mets' roster projection: Daniel Murphy DL edition

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Daniel Murphy's pulled right hamstring may heal in time and the second baseman may be in the New York Mets' Opening Day lineup. But, as general manager Sandy Alderson has noted, hamstring injuries tend to linger. So let's take an educated stab at the Mets' projected roster for the April 6 opener at the Washington Nationals in the scenario in which Murphy is unavailable.

Danny Muno vying for second-base job

LAKELAND, Fla. -- New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson identified two candidates for Opening Day second baseman if Daniel Murphy’s right hamstring pull forces him to open the season on the disabled list. One was Matt Reynolds, the highly touted former second-round pick out of the University of Arkansas. The other: Danny Muno, an eighth-round pick in 2011 out of Fresno State. Who? Even stadium public-address announcers lack familiarity with Muno, often giving him a Spanish accent, “Muño.
