Mets | Daniel Murphy unlikely for OD
Fri, 22 Mar 2013 15:33:13 -0700
New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (intercostal) isn't expected to play in a game this weekend, which makes him unlikely to be ready by opening day. Murphy hasn't had any spring at-bats after having a cortisone injection Feb. 19. However, he did take batting practice Friday, March 22. He would have to miss the first five games of the regular season if he starts on the disabled list.
