Nationals likely to leave Murphy behind in Florida

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy is likely to remain behind in Florida when the Washington Nationals break camp.

Murphy had micro-fracture surgery on his right knee on Oct. 20 and has not appeared in any major league or minor league spring training games. His rehabilitation has taken longer than expected, and Howie Kendrick or Wilmer Difo are expected to start at second in next Thursday's opener at Cincinnati.

"He's coming along," new manager Dave Martinez said. "Might see him maybe get some at-bats here in the next week or so down in the minor league camp."
