Analysis: The sweet-swinging second baseman picked up right where he left off from his banner 2016 campaign, in which he hit .347 and just missed out on the NL batting title. Murphy hit a scorching .411 through the first 16 games of that season, so he does have a track record of starting fast.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker is taking a wait-and-see approach. ''You can talk all you want,'' Baker said. ''He wasn't comfortable when he left and he didn't get many ABs.''
Analysis: Murphy went hitless in six at-bats for gold medal-winning Team USA. Before heading to the WBC, Murphy had only three hits in 17 Grapefruit League at-bats.
