Daniel Murphy, Mets draw Tigers' interest

Daniel Murphy for Andy Dirks? It's possible, sources say. (You would assume it would take more than Dirks, otherwise you might begin to wonder if the Mets are actually run by New York's version of MLive.)

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports (on Twitter) the Tigers have inquired about Murphy, a 26-year-old infielder who can play first, second and third base. (Eyeing up his defensive metrics, second might not be the best place for him, but he played the position.)

Sherman says:

Mets like Tigers Andy Dirks as potential CF alternative to Pagan.

Murphy batted .320 with a .362 OBP and .448 slugging average in 2011. He is batting .292 / .343 / .441 for a career across three seasons.

He tore his MCL in 2010 and again in 2011.
