Daniel Murphy did not work out with the Mets on Sunday, two days after saying he simply scraped his shin sliding in to second base during a Grapefruit League game.
“The only thing I can say is it’s day-to-day right now,” Murphy said (ESPN NY, Mar. 9). “My leg’s a little sore right now. It’s just sore. It’s tough to really describe.”
Terry Collins said last week that Wilmer Flores will start at shortstop and second base this week. He also said Eric Young Jr. will only play second base during the season if Murphy is injured.
