Daniel Murphy suffered a Grade 2 tear of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee and is done for the season, according to a source familiar with the injury. Murphy will not require surgery, but will have a four-month recovery time.

Murphy strained the MCL in his other knee last season and also rehabbed the injury. He returned in winter ball wearing a large brace.
