Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy was given a cortisone injection on Tuesday afternoon in Manhattan to help curb some of the discomfort related to his strained right intercostal muscle.

Murphy suffered the injury on Monday morning while performing a drill at Mets camp in Port St. Lucie, Florida. He is expected to return to the practice field in Port St. Lucie after a week to 10 days of rest.

Murphy batted .291/.332/.403 with six home runs and 65 RBI in 156 games last summer and earned a one-year, $2.75 million contract this winter as a first-year arbitration-eligible player.

The 27-year-old has ample time to get ready for the start of the 2013 regular season.

    Ok, NOW it’s getting painful. Players have reported. It seems like we’re through the woods, but then NO — what we get are strains, pains, and ambulance-chasing.

    Bread pudding!
