Daniel Murphy has been as hot as they come this postseason for the Mets and is a big reason why the team is up 2-0 in the NLCS over the Cubs. But this is a contract year for Daniel Murphy and the Mets don’t seem to be buying this hot streak.
Reports indicate that the Mets do not plan on retaining Daniel Murphy, who will become a free agent this offseason.
The New York Mets will likely not retain second baseman Daniel Murphy for the 2016 season despite his strong postseason production, reports the New York Daily News. Murphy is set to be a free agent this off-season for the first time in his career.
“He’s been great, really great,” one Mets team source told the Daily News, “but it changes nothing.”
In seven postseason games this year against the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs, Murphy is hitting .357 with eight RBIs and five home runs, four of which have come in consecutive games.
