PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Daniel Murphy, who has yet to appear in a Grapefruit League game, is nearing game action.
Murphy has started swinging in a batting cage and only needs to take full batting practice before entering games.
He received a cortisone injection in New York for a strained intercostal muscle on his right side on Feb. 19.
Murphy described his side muscle as "progressing swimmingly."
