Daniel Murphy has settled for $2.925 million to avoid an arbitration hearing. He will earn $500,000 less than the midpoint of his asking price and the team's offer, a baseball source told ESPNNewYork.com.

The Mets previously settled with Bobby Parnell and Ike Davis, leaving them with no remaining cases.

The club last went to an arbitration hearing in 2008, with Oliver Perez and Scott Boras.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
