Daniel Murphy exits game after being plunked on the hand

In the middle of all of the Matt Harvey excitement, something else happened in today’s Mets-Tigers game: David Price plunked Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy on the hand with a pitch. It seemed wholly accidental, if you care about such things.

The pitch hit Murphy on the back of the hand. He stayed in at first, but he was removed from the game before taking the field in the top of the second inning. He’ll presumably get X-Rays.

Between the Bean and the plunk, not the best week in the world for Murphy.
