2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: DANIEL MURPHY (KNEE) RETURN IS IMMINENT

                                                                  

Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy has officially re-joined the team on Monda after finally completing his rehab work from last year's microfracture surgery in his knee.  While the Nats have not decided yet if Murphy will be sent on a quick minor league stint to get his bat up to speed, there are also rumblings he may simply be activated and thrown right back into the lineup.  Whatever the decision ultimately is, Murphy's return is imminent and so his patient fantasy baseball owners will get the smooth-swinging second baseman back to give their teams a May boost.  What should be noted though (and this is something I mentioned all winter and into the spring) is that Murphy is likely going to return with zero speed (no more steals) and possibly a downgrade in power given the fact he is moving into his mid-30's and is coming off a very serious surgery.  The injury risk also remains very high here as Murphy is getting older and has a lot of games under his ledger.  So his owners may not be getting the All-Star monster of the last two years but instead a nice second baseman who will help but not at those crazy rates.
