ESPN is reporting that Daniel Murphy was diagnosed with a torn MCL in his left knee. In yesterday’s loss to the Braves, he was slid into at second base by Jose Constanza. It was clear that Murphy’s leg moved awkwardly and that he was in severe pain.

According to the ESPN report, Muphy won’t need surgery but will have a four month recovery period. Ruben Tejada has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to take Murphy’s spot on the roster.
