The New York Mets received bad news today on Daniel Murphy, finding out that he will be lost for the season.

Murphy, who the Mets were prepping as a utility infielder in Triple-A Buffalo, suffered a "high-grade" tear of the cruciate ligament in his right knee, the team announced today.

Murphy was hurt while attempting to turn a double play.

The Mets say no surgery is required, but he is expected to be out four to six weeks.

With Luis Castillo undergoing tests for his injured foot today, the Mets should consider a trade with the Baltimore Orioles for Ty Wigginton.
