Braves News: Sean Murphy hamstring, win streak, more

Atlanta Braves news and notes from Saturday

MLB: Colorado Rockies at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Sean Murphy left Saturday’s game with hamstring tightness. It doesn’t appear that it is anything more severe than simply tightness, however, given the position he plays, the Braves may not be able to get away with keeping him off the IL. They do have an off day on Monday, so they could perhaps make it through Wednesday without needing another catcher. However, if he will need to sit out any longer than that, the team will likely need another catcher on the roster to rotate with Travis d’Arnaud. Given the often nagging nature of hamstring injuries, it may be the smartest option to simply place Murphy on the IL to allow a fuller recovery even as this would be a significant blow to the Braves on the field.

Sean Murphy left Saturday’s game with hamstring tightness and while it doesn’t appear to be very severe, he may hit the IL and hamstring tightness can be notoriously nagging.
