Murphy hasn't been cleared to run yet, but it's a good sign that he's already feeling well enough to take at-bats against live pitching. The hope is that he'll only require the minimum 15 days on the disabled list. He was officially put on the shelf June 5.

While Collins wouldn't nix the possibility of a disabled list stint, there's no timetable for Murphy's return and the second baseman will be reevaluated on Friday. His status moving forward should be more clear at that point.
