Description: Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy is a .455 lifetime hitter versus Braves starter Alex Wood.
Insight: Murphy is 5-for-11 with no extra-base hits, but he should be started on Sunday. Murphy is hitting just .111 this season, but perhaps this matchup will get him going.

Description: Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy (hamstring) will miss the next week.
Insight: Murphy batted .289 last season with nine homers, 57 RBI, 79 runs and a .734 OPS. He's a useful low-end fantasy option at second base and should be ready for the start of the season. He might start out slow having only seen 21 plate appearances so far this spring.

Description: Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that Daniel Murphy (calf) is "looking at quite a lengthy DL stint."
Insight: General manager Sandy Alderson added that the MRI on Murphy's right calf showed "a significant issue". With only 28 games left, it is certainly possible that Murphy's season is over. That's too bad too as Muprhy made his first All-Star team and leads the NL with 159 hits. The Mets called up Dilson Herrera to take over second base.

Insight: Murphy left Sunday's game with soreness in his right calf and he's scheduled to see a doctor at the stadium Tuesday. Wilmer Flores is starting at second base. The Mets are playing without Murphy and David Wright so Atlanta starter Alex Wood (3.05 ERA) could have a pretty easy time.
