Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com is reporting that Daniel Murphy tore his MCL again after what is being called a dirty slide in Wednesday’s Buffalo Bisons game in which he was playing. The knee injury will sit him out for four to six months, but he will not need surgery.
It’s just another case of bad luck for the former Mets starting first baseman. He worked so hard to be able to contribute in some way, even beginning to play second base in the minors. Better luck next year, Murph.
