Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Will be back in lineup Friday

Murphy (neck) will return to the starting nine for Friday's game against the Dodgers, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Murphy missed the past couple days while dealing with a stiff neck, which has seemingly been plaguing the 32-year-old for a little time now, although it hasn't affected his play at the plate much. During his last 14 games, Murphy is hitting .354 with two home runs and seven RBI, and continues to be one of the top offensive second basemen in the league.
