Daniel Murphy continues to work back from a quad injury that was sustained a few weeks ago in Arizona. This injury has delayed Murphy’s return timetable from the 15 days, to Tuesday, to this weekend, but it now looks like he is very close to returning.
Murphy played in a rehab game in Port St. Lucie with the GCL Mets. This was his first rehab at bat in a real game, though he played in a few extended Spring Training games before today. The difference between the extended spring games and the GCL games are minimal, so they should all be counted as rehab games for Daniel. Today, Murphy went 1-for-1 with a walk, before the game was called due to inclement weather. Murphy is still expected back this weekend, presumably Friday.
