Murphy (knee) was activated from the disabled list and will make his season debut Tuesday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

Murphy is finally ready to go after recovering from October knee surgery. In 10 rehab games with Double-A Harrisburg, the second baseman hit .243/.364/.459 with a pair of homers and a 6:4 BB:K. If fully healthy, Murphy will be a key figure in a Nationals lineup which has been mediocre thus far, falling in the middle of the pack in terms of runs per game.
