ESPN is reporting that Daniel Murphy was diagnosed with a torn MCL in his left knee. In yesterday’s loss to the Braves, he was slid into at second base by Jose Constanza. It was clear that Murphy’s leg moved awkwardly and that he was in severe pain.

According to the ESPN report, Muphy won’t need surgery but will have a four month recovery period. Ruben Tejada has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to take Murphy’s spot on the roster.

About Dave Doyle

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
