    • Manager Dave Martinez said Murphy (knee) is "on schedule" in his rehab but didn't know if he'd be ready for spring training, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Murphy underwent surgery to repair the articular cartilage in his right knee back in October. While the Nationals remain optimistic about his progress, the team still won't say whether he'll be ready to go for the start of the season. Things should clear up as spring approaches. Wilmer Difo would likely fill in at the keystone if Murphy is forced to miss any action, assuming the team looks internally for a potential replacement.

    • Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Optimism for Opening Day
      By RotoWire Staff

      General manager Mike Rizzo said that the team is "optimistic" that Murphy (knee) will be ready for Opening Day, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. Murphy underwent surgery to repair the articular cartilage a couple weeks ago after playing the tail end of the 2017 season with an ailing right knee. Although the Nationals are becoming more hopeful regarding Murphy's timetable, it's still very early in the process and the second baseman has a long recovery ahead.

    • There is a decent chance that Murphy (knee) won't be ready for the start of the 2018 season, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports. He underwent surgery Friday to repair the articular cartilage in his right knee. The procedure is serious enough that he may end up missing time next season. We may get more updates during the offseason, but things should really come into focus during spring training. Wilmer Difo is the obvious internal option to get starts at second base if Murphy is not ready for Opening Day.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Murphy underwent successful knee surgery to repair the articular cartilage in his right knee, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. The Nationals stated that Murphy will begin rehab immediately, but the only sort of timetable mentioned was that the rehab "will progress throughout the offseason." Regarding the surgery, Dr. Timothy Kremcheck performed the procedure, which entailed debridement and microfracture of the knee. There will likely be updates on Murphy's status as the offseason moves along.

    • Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Back in Wednesday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Murphy is in the lineup against the Phillies on Wednesday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports. Murphy has been out of the lineup for the past two days while resting and recovering from a sore hamstring, but will be back at second base and hitting out of the three-hole for Wednesday's affair. Since the Nationals are playing every day until Sunday, it wouldn't be surprising if manager Dusty Baker elects to give Murphy another day or two off in order to be as healthy as possible for the divisional round of the playoffs next week.
