The Mets' infield got a little banged up during their blowout win over the Dodgers. After David Wright left in the 3rd with neck spasms, Daniel Murphy had to leave in the 9th with an injury of his own.

The Mets are off tomorrow as they head back home after their west coast road swing, so that gives the second baseman a little time to heal up and possibly be ready to go on Tuesday. Wilmer Flores took Murphy's place at second for the bottom half of the inning.
It wasn't exactly specified when and how Murphy suffered the injury, but from the sounds of it, it sounds like simple wear and tear. Nonetheless, the Mets will want to make sure it's nothing serious before trotting him out for sure as they get set to welcome the Braves and kick off a six-game homestand at Citi Field.
