Daniel Murphy underwent a debridement and microfracture surgery on Friday to repair damage to the articular cartilage in his right knee.

Murphy tore the MCL in the same knee many years ago but this is the first we've heard of any knee issues since then. The Nationals did not reveal a timetable for his return, only saying that he will rehab "throughout the offseason." It's a significant operation, so it's certainly possible that Murphy will be limited in spring training.
Oct 20 - 3:21 PM's Todd Zolecki reports that the Phillies have interviewed Giants third base coach Phil Nevin for their managerial opening.

Nevin was a finalist for the Diamondbacks' job a couple years ago before being hired to the Giants' coaching staff last winter. Zolecki adds that Dodgers player development director Gabe Kapler has either interviewed or is scheduled to interview. Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway and A's third base coach Chip Hale have also been interviewed.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that Cardinals bench coach David Bell has left the team in order to take a job as the Giants' farm director.

Bell had been with the Cardinals since 2014 as their assistant hitting coach and then bench coach. He was previously a third base coach with the Cubs and a manager in the Reds' minor league system.

Tigers manager Al Avila said Friday that the team will decline Anibal Sanchez's $16 million option for 2018.

The decision was a mere formality, of course. Sanchez had a nice 104/29 K/BB ratio over 105 1/3 innings this season, but he posted a 6.41 ERA and has put up a 5.67 mark across the last three campaigns. Slated to turn 34 in February, Sanchez will probably have a tough time finding a guaranteed rotation spot in 2018.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Mets hitting coach Kevin Long "has been viewed as the favorite" for the team's manager job, but Mariners third base coach Manny Acta "has emerged as a legitimate possibility."

Astros bench coach Alex Cora, White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing and Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway have also interviewed for the gig, but Cora is expected to take the Red Sox' job and it sounds like McEwing and Callaway are unlikely to be picked by the Mets. Sherman says that the club could make a contract offer to a manager as soon as Friday and want to finalize a deal this weekend.
