Murphy described the injury as a subtle tug on his right side. He is expected to have a cortisone shot and will miss at least a week and could be sidelined for as long as three weeks. While he is out, [Brandon Hicks], [Jordany Valdespin] and[Justin Turner] should all see more action at second base.
Flores is wanted for his bat, not known for his defense at any position, but then again neither is Murphy. Rumors I've been hearing over the past week is that Murphy is the one who they will likely try to shop when he gets back. - ATWBiggest difference is that Murphy has proven he can hit MLB pitching for average. Flores hasn't even had a full year in AA (though he performed well is 66 games).
