LAKELAND, Fla. -- Eric Young Jr. starts at second base Saturday against the Detroit Tigers, but that is not a position Terry Collins intends to use him at during the regular season. That is, with one exception.

"Murph gets hurt," Collins said, identifying the scenario in which EY Jr. would see action at second base.

Young appeared in three games (one start) for the Mets last season at second base.
