Murphy, who returned on Tuesday from a two-week stay on the DL with a strained right calf,  is hitting .299/.343/.420 (OPS+ 119) with nine homers and 53 RBI in 129 games.

Murphy, 29, is in his sixth major league season, all for the Mets, and has posted a career line of .292/.335/.424. The Mets drafted him in 2006 (13th round) and he made his debut August 2, 2008. He lost the 2010 season with right knee problems and ended the 2011 season with a strained left knee. Murphy is in his second year of arbitration ($5.7 million) and eligible for free agency after the 2015 season.
