Jose Reyes left the game yesterday in the second inning after experiencing stiffness in his left hamstring.

Daniel Murphy was removed from the game in the seventh inning after sustaining an injury to his left knee.

Reyes received an MRI and was examined yesterday at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). He has a strain of his left hamstring. His playing status will be determined later today.

Murphy also received an MRI and was examined at HSS yesterday. He has a sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) of the left knee. Recovery time from this injury, which should not require surgery, is estimated to be six-to-eight weeks. Murphy is likely out for the season. He will be put on the 15-Day Disabled List today and will be replaced by Ruben Tejada on the 25-Man Roster.
