Andrew Brown has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with Triple-A Las Vegas.
ESPN New York
Brown suffered an oblique injury Sunday and is out indefinitely. He was considered among the candidates to replace the struggling Ike Davis, but Brown is now looking at missing extended time. Mets GM Sandy Alderson insists that demoting Davis is "not imminent."
David Murphy went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in Sunday night's win over the Tigers.
With Ian Kinsler on the disabled list, the Rangers are using Elvis Andrus as their leadoff hitter and Murphy in the No. 2 spot. It's not exactly a deserved promotion after Murphy posted a .170/.215/.295 batting line in April, but there are not any other current options. Murphy appears to be finally healthy after missing time last week with a lower back injury.
Derek Holland allowed four runs on eight hits and last just 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision on Sunday night against the Tigers.
It was the first time Holland hasn't went at least five innings in a start this season. He gave up three walks and managed to finish with six strikeouts, but couldn't overcome a pair of home runs to Miguel Cabrera. After settling for two straight no-decisions, Holland will look to get back in the win column in his next start Saturday vs. the Mariners.
