Mets injury updates (some positive ones included)!
David Wright is still in a holding pattern, but there are updates on four other Mets who are working their way back from injury — with one also returning from suspension…
Daniel Murphy (strained left quad):
Murphy, who has been out a little over two weeks due to a strained quad, played in a rehab game for the Gulf Coast League Mets on Wednesday, going 1-for-1 with a walk before the game was cut short due to rain.
It’s expected that Murphy will be activated from the disabled list by the time the Mets play the second game of their set in Cincinnati on Saturday.
Once Murphy returns, the infield alignment will likely feature Murphy at third base, Wilmer Flores at shortstop, Dilson Herrera at second base, and Lucas Duda at first base.
However, with Herrera struggling a bit lately, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Terry Collins give Tejada some chances at second base.
