Daniel Murphy has been the definition of Mr. October for the New York Mets this postseason.

He is batting .357 with 5 home runs and 8 runs batted in through 27 at-bats split between the NLDS and the NLCS, triumphing over Mets stars David Wright and Yoenis Cespedes.

It was expected by many that the Mets would choose not to bring Murphy back after the 2015 season concluded, but with his reason binge of success in the postseason, many thought the Mets would consider re-thinking their situation with Murphy.

As it turns out, according to the New York Daily News

Two team sources said again Sunday that Murphy, despite his postseason heroics, is not in Mets’ future plans.

“He’s been great, really great,” one source said, “but it changes nothing.” . . . The team feels strongly that Dilson Herrera will eventually develop into their second baseman of the future or that Wilmer Flores could be play there in the meantime.

As for his regular season numbers, Murphy batted .281 with 14 home runs and 73 runs batted in. He is a versatile player that could make a larger deal than his expectations following his red hot postseason.
