An MRI of Daniel Murphy's right shoulder revealed no issue and the second baseman has been cleared to continue playing, the team announced.

The team is calling the injury rotator cuff tightness.

Murphy injured himself on an eighth-inning swing and left Sunday's game. While Murphy downplayed the issue as a spasm and tightness, Terry Collins said Murphy felt a pop and the team initially labeled it a strain in the back of the shoulder.

Initially concerned about a potential DL trip for Murphy, the Mets delayed Jordany Valdespin departing New York for Triple-A Buffalo.
