Daniel Murphy: Leaves Spring Training With Rib Injury

Rotowire.com
Update: Murphy has pain in his right intercostal muscle and is headed back to New York to be examined, the Mets' official Twitter account reports.

Recommendation: Murphy described the injury as a subtle tug on his right side. He is expected to have a cortisone shot and will miss at least a week and could be sidelined for as long as three weeks. While he is out, Brandon Hicks, Jordany Valdespin and Justin Turner should all see more action at second base.
