Video: Daniel Murphy talks to Adam Rubin about 2B
Murphy was learning second base at Triple-A Buffalo to prepare to return to the majors as a utility player when Syracuse Chief Leonard Davis, a Washington Nationals farmhand, rolled into him while trying to break up a double play June 2. Murphy suffered a severe strain of the medial collateral ligament.
Murphy was asked if he thought the slide was dirty and how he felt about the whole play.
"I'm not angry," Murphy said. "I feel like it was a questionable slide. It was a dirty slide. And the game has a way of evening itself out. I was not in the greatest position to defend myself and protect myself, which in the grand scheme of things has helped me working, because I know how to defend myself now."
