Daniel Murphy has returned from paternity leave, after spending three days with his wife and newborn son in Florida.
Murphy is in Thursday’s starting lineup batting second and playing second base.
He told reporters that he named his son Noah after the biblical Noah and not Syndergaard, in case anyone was confused.
“Syndergaard is the other Noah in my life,” he joked.
Murphy talked to the media about becoming a father and the criticism he’s taken for going on paternity leave.
