Now that David Wright figures to be out at least a month manager Terry Collins said he intended to discuss options with general manager Sandy Alderson. Moving Daniel Murphy to third is one option. “I want to talk to Sandy about some of the ideas we’ve got and make sure he’s on board with it all” Collins said noting the transition for Murphy. “There’s some adjustments you got to make. Murph’s going to take some ground balls there today. He’s going to take some ground balls there [tomorrow]. I’ll talk to Sandy about a couple of other ideas I have and see where he sits on it all.” One other possibility is Wilmer Flores entering in the mix at second. Flores was hitting .322 and playing some third base as well for Triple-A Las Vegas. “Potentially he could for sure. He’s been playing a lot of second base. I’m going to certainly gather all the information before we make that move with him” Collins said.
