Dan Murphy suffered his forearm injury at last Saturday’s AFL Rising Stars game when he was cleated while covering second base. It opened up a gash on his arm, which was stitched up at the hospital.
Murphy has missed all of the Saguaros games since, but the Mets told me today he is fine. He is expected to return to action at some point this weekend.
Murphy, who is batting .400, sat during the Saguaros’ game this afternoon.
Also, Oliver Perez and Damion Easley filed for free agency today, which was the first day players were allowed to do so.
