New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy received a cortisone injection to his right side after meeting and having an exam with team doctors on Tuesday.
On Monday, he was reportedly feeling a subtle tug on the right side of his body. This came after he was diagnosed with an intercostal strain.
This is not expected to hamper Murphy very long, but it is expected to keep him out 7-10 days. He is expected to be available to start Opening Day.
Last season, he had a .291 batting average in a 156 games. In those 156 games, he had 6 home runs and 65 RBI's.
