Daniel Murphy (knee) taking BP with team

Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy (knee) is in Cincinnati with the team and is taking batting practice.

Fantasy Impact

This is a good sign for his progress. It was originally thought Murphy would stay behind in Florida, but the fact he's taking batting practice with the team could be a sign he's closer to returning than expected. Murphy has a chance to beat the mid-April timetable.

Daniel Murphy placed on the 10-day disabled list

Nationals placed 2B Daniel Murphy on the 10-day disabled list with a right knee injury. Murphy is still rehabbing from October microfracture knee surgery.

Fantasy Impact

This will not be a long-term stay on the DL for Murphy who should be ready in a few weeks to come back and play. Fantasy owners should keep Murphy stashed on the injured list until he returns.

Daniel Murphy (knee) won't be ready for Opening Day

Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy acknowledged on Wednesday that he won't be ready for Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy's exact words were "I think it's reasonable to expect I won't be in the opening day lineup". All signs have been pointing to this for a while now, but now that we have confirmation he should be dropped a bit in fantasy rankings. It's unclear when he is aiming to return, which makes him a risky fantasy pick for upcoming drafts.

Daniel Murphy not looking good for Opening Day

According to Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports, there is "virtually" no chance that Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy (knee) will be healthy in time for Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact

This is the way things have been leaning for a while now, though Washington has yet to announce this is true. Murphy was fantastic in 2017, hitting .322 with a .928 OPS and 23 home runs. Until we get an official timetable fantasy players should expect to be without Murphy for at least a few weeks in April. Howie Kendrick will fill in at second base.
