Latest Update Daniel Murphy is not in the Mets starting lineup on Tuesday Tue Aug, 19, 06:36 PM
Blessed with a nice line-drive swing, he can pile up doubles and hit for a good average. Will hit for some power and doesn't strike out too much, either. Runs pretty well and can play several positions in the field.
Flaws: : Is only average with the glove, anywhere on the field. Also lacks optimum power and has a tendency to be streaky at the dish. Must continue to work on the mental aspects of the game, and not let errors bother him.
This is just a routine day off for one of the best hitting second baseman in the National League. Murphy's had a solid fantasy season and is a top 10 option at his position.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Murphy stayed hot Thursday, having now gone 11-for-26 (.423 BA) with four extra-base hits (1 HR), six RBI and four runs scored over his last six games, including four consecutive multi-hit contests. He is now slashing .305/.349/.440 with nine home runs, 49 RBI, 66 runs scored and 12 RBI over 466 at-bats, as he continues to be a great option at the keystone despite not sticking out in one specific category.

Murphy has been on quite a run lately and Tuesday was no exception. He remains one of the more underrated second base options in baseball, but that probably won't last much longer. He'll look to continue his hot hitting as we get deeper into the second half.Analyst: David Kerr
Murphy homered for the second time in four games on Monday afternoon, and is now slashing .296/.341/.429 with nine home runs, 45 RBI, 65 runs scored and 12 stolen bases over 452 at-bats. Although he does not stick out in one specific category his production across the board makes him one of the better second base options to own in 2014 and has been consistent enough to continue deploying at the keystone the rest of the way, despite the fact it will be hard for him to match his power production from a season ago.
