Impact: Five games is the threshold in some leagues to qualify at the position giving Murphy additional value, though he likely is being used at second base. Murphy won't hit the 20-game threshold followed by most leagues for position qualification in the following season, but should reach 10 games, so check your league rules accordingly.(RotoWire, )

News: Murphy is 2-for-7 with a walk since returning to the lineup Tuesday.

News: Murphy (calf), who was activated off the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, is playing third base Wednesday with David Wright (shoulder) out for the season, ESPN New York reports. Impact: Mets fans and fantasy owners may remember that Murphy played third in the minors, but in the majors, went from left field to first base and then over it second, where he has been the last few seasons. Playing him at third enables Dilson Herrera to get back in the lineup at second. This switch may not be permanent and is possibly influenced by Rafael Montero, Wednesday's starter, being a flyball pitcher, so Murphy's defense at third may not be as critical as it would be with a groundball pitcher.(RotoWire, )
