Daniel Murphy collects first hit of the season

Daniel Murphy went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in the Nationals' loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Finally, after missing 63 games and going hitless in his first two games back, Murphy recorded his first hit of the 2018 season. Stay patient with Murphy, as the veteran infielder hasn't had reps since October and is still getting back into the swing of things.

Daniel Murphy activated from disabled list

The Nationals have announced that they have activated Daniel Murphy from the disabled list.

Fantasy Impact

What a long, slow journey it's been for Murphy, who was once rumored to potentially be ready to go by Opening Day. The slugger reportedly looked a bit gimpy during his rehab assignment, so expect him to get some days off going forward. For now, however, owners can finally breathe a sigh of relief and get ready for (hopefully) one of the most productive second basemen in fantasy.

Daniel Murphy will travel with Nationals to New York

Daniel Murphy is at Nationals Park for their game against the Giants on Sunday and will travel to New York with the team for their series against the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact

The Nationals will be in need of a DH in the upcoming series and Murphy appears to be likely to come off of the DL and man that spot. He's 85% owned on Yahoo and nearly 84% owned on ESPN. We should know more about what day Murphy will be activated after the Nationals game against the Giants is complete.

Daniel Murphy feeling a little better and could return soon

Daniel Murphy is feeling a little bit better and manager Dave Martinez says the Nationals would like to see Murphy play 3-4 days in a row before activating him.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez made comments last week regarding Murphy's health and it sounded like he wasn't even close to a return. Martinez has changed his tune and the Nationals just need to see him play a few days in a row to activate him. If the Murphy owner got tired of waiting and dropped him, he needs to be picked up immediately.

Daniel Murphy (knee) still a ways away from returning

Daniel Murphy (knee) is set to be re-evaluated on Monday, but Nationals manager Dave Martinez still thinks he's a ways out from getting activated off the disabled list.

Fantasy Impact

There have also been reports that Murphy hasn't looked comfortable during his rehab assignment. The 33-year-old underwent micro-fracture surgery on his knee over the off-season and doesn't appear close to returning.
