It’s been a week since Daniel Murphy got a cortisone injection for his strained intercostal muscle, but manager Terry Collins said today that the Mets second baseman is still 7-10 days from getting into the lineup.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Murphy still hasn’t resumed swinging a bat yet, although so far at least there’s been no talk of the injury potentially sidelining him through Opening Day.

Murphy is slated to be the Mets’ everyday second baseman after hitting .291 with six homers and a .735 OPS in 156 games last season.
