Ruben Tejada plays catch with Daniel Murphy on Friday morning as Mets players warm up for a pre-intrasquad game workout.
Tejada recalled that Murphy and he actually played together in the middle infield for about 20 games with Triple-A Buffalo in 2010. That came just before Murphy's season ended with a medial collateral ligament strain in his right knee, courtesy of a slide from Washington Nationals farmhand Leonard Davis.
Murphy still wears a brace on that knee. He injured the MCL in the left knee last season, also while manning second base, on a slide from Atlanta's Jose Constanza. But that injury, although to the same ligament as in the other knee, is considered less severe.
