Daniel Murphy likely won’t make his return to the team with much remaining left in the season, Terry Collins and Sandy Alderson said on Friday.
Murphy went for an MRI, which showed a “significant issue,” Alderson said.
The second baseman was removed from the game on Sunday with calf tightness. The Mets put him on the disabled list and called up 20-year-old Dilson Herrera from Double-A on Thursday.
If and when Murphy does his make his return to the team, Collins said his name will be on the lineup card.
