Murphy was injured diving for a sharp grounder in the fourth inning Friday night against the Miami Marlins. He remained in the game and got his first hit with the Rockies in the ninth inning, but swelling on his finger worsened overnight.
Murphy said Saturday that X-rays showed a fracture on the tip of his left index finger. He said he will visit a hand specialist on Monday and will go on the injured list, although an official roster move hasn’t been made.
Murphy signed a two-year, $24 million free-agent contract with Colorado in the offseason. He is a career .299 hitter in 11 seasons.
