Daniel Murphy Gets Cortisone Shot

As expected, Daniel Murphy received a cortisone shot Tuesday to deal with the “subtle tug” of his intercostal muscle in his right ribs, a source tells ESPNNewYork.com.

Before he traveled to New York Tuesday morning for treatment, Daniel Murphy said he hoped the injury would only keep him out for a week to 10 days.

David Wright suffered a similar injury last season and also got a cortisone shot. He was ready and able by Opening Day, so that’s good news, right?
