Yahoo - 2 hours 27 min ago

A big season in the minors put Dilson Herrera on deck as Daniel Murphy's potential replacement at second base for the New York Mets someday. After a rapid rise through the Mets' system, Herrera arrived at Citi Field on Friday and was in the starting lineup against Philadelphia. He was called up Thursday night from Double-A Binghamton when Murphy went on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Aug. 25, with a strained right calf. It's a temporary stopgap for now, but the 20-year-old Herrera could be New York's second baseman of the future.
