Daniel Murphy, currently fifth in the National League in batting, will drop out of the league leaders list by season's end. A player needs 502 plate appearances to qualify for the batting title (3.1 PA per game). Murphy will finish with 423.
Murphy's .320 average only trails teammate Jose Reyes (.336) as well as Milwaukee's Ryan Braun (.326), Washington's Michael Morse (.324) and Cincinnati's Joey Votto (.322).
Murphy will drop out after game No. 137 for the Mets.
