Last week, Kieran Darcy of ESPN New York said the Mets plan to have Murphy play a variety of positions at Triple-A to make him more versatile. Daniel Murphy's rehabilitation assignment has ended in Port St. Lucie, and they optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo. Murphy was placed on the disable list during the final week of Spring Training, and spent almost two months rehabilitating the injury.

With Luis Castillo recovering from a bone bruise in left foot, the Mets could look at Murphy's for second base. He was a third baseman in the minors. Murphy's bat would be big plus to the Mets lineup. Daniel Murphy look more like a middle infielder than an outfielder or first baseman. The Mets bench would be stronger with Murphy's there.
